Graduate Students
I accept graduate student through the UNH Department of Natural Resources Wildlife and Conservation Biology MS program, and through the UNH Natural Resources and Earth System Science Ph.D. program. If you are interested in applying to work with me, please contact me by email in advance and include the following information.
• A brief description of your research interests and past research experience
• Why you feel my lab is an appropriate match for you
• An up-to-date CV

Open position - MS in small mammal ecology : I am currently looking for a MS. student to participate in an ongoing field study on resource use and density dynamics at the Bartlett Experimental Forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, but will also be encouraged to develop a unique project that interests the student and coincides with the theme of the Rowe Lab. The student will develop leadership skills by overseeing a team of undergraduate researchers during the summer field season and may have the opportunity to mentor undergraduates during the school year. The student will be expected to present results at scientific conferences and to agency personnel, and will lead publications that emerge from this research.  This is an intensive field project and will require long hours outside being physically active and mentally alert.

Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in a pertinent discipline and can begin field work in late May 2018. Previous experience conducting field work is required and familiarity with live-trapping small mammals is preferred. Applicants should be able to work both independently and cooperatively with other members of the lab. Strong communication and writing skills are desired.

Stipend, health insurance, and a tuition waiver will be provided for two years through a Teaching Assistantship.

Interested individuals should email Rebecca Rowe at in advance of applying to the program. Please attach a single pdf file that includes a brief description of your background and research interests, a CV (including GPA, and GRE scores), and the names and contact information for three professional references.

Undergraduate Students
We actively involve undergraduate students in both lab and field work. Students may participate through honors research projects, SURFs, work-study positions, and on a volunteer basis. Interested undergraduates should contact me by email and include a brief description of their research interests, previous research experience, and a CV.
