Opportunities

seeking citizen scientists for summer 2018

As summer approaches and the Nature in the City team gears up for our next field season, we are seeking citizen scientists to help us conduct bird and butterfly surveys at urban natural areas across Fort Collins!

If you are interested in learning more about the project or would like to apply to be a citizen scientist, please visit our website or contact Mikko Jimenez, who will be coordinating the program at (Miguel.Jimenez@colostate.edu).


Currently, there are no other openings for graduate students, post-docs, or research associates in our laboratory group. When an opportunity becomes available, we will post the information here and to relevant listservs (e.g., Ecological Society of America) and job boards (e.g., Society for Conservation Biology).

In addition, if our applied conservation research interests align, I am often willing to work with prospective graduate students or postdoctoral fellows on applications for fellowship or grant funding. If you are interested in applying for funding in collaboration with our lab group, please send the following in a single pdf document to sreed@wcs.org: (1) a letter of interest that describes the funding opportunity, your qualifications, and a summary of your research idea; (2) a current CV; and (3) contact information for three professional references.
