Our research lab has openings for motivated students interested in pursuing either a Master's degree in Biology or Master's degree in Natural Resources Management. Possibilities also exist for Ph.D. studies at Lakehead and in collaboration with other universities, and postdoctoral inquiries are always welcome. Current interests focus on the evolution of habitat selection, on the evolution of life histories and on their respective roles in population dynamics, in community organization, and in the conservation of biodiversity.
We are especially interested in linking the optimal behavioral strategies of individuals with their population, metapopulation, community and conservation consequences.

Lakehead University is optimally located for field studies in boreal ecosystems, and as a base for field research in western and northern Canada. Our globally unique Habitron enables a wide variety of experiments assessing interconnections among habitat, adaptive behaviors, population dynamics and the conservation of biodiversity. Programs in Biology, Natural Resources Management and Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism share an ecological and conservation theme with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry's Centre for Northern Forest Ecosystem Research (CNFER) as well as with Wildlife Conservation Society Canada's Thunder Bay office.
