University of Alberta: One graduate assistantship (M.S. or Ph.D.) in 
insect ecology/forest pest management is available beginning January or

attack mechanisms of the mountain pine beetle on lodgepole pines and to 
develop spatial models to predict the mortality rates of lodgepole 
pines attacked by the beetle at the stand level. We encourage students 
who is broadly trained in any of the areas of biology or 
mathematics/statistics to apply, but would be particularly interested 
in students who plan to combine theoretical modeling and field 
experiment in their research. The candidate will be co-supervised by
