Useful Sites For Finding a Job

Students often ask me for advice on finding a gradaute program, job, or field expereince. The first thing I recomend is subscribing to list servs and trolling job boards. Below are a few sites that I have used or that have been recommened to me. If you have any suggestions or have comments on these sites please shoot me an e-mail.

Animal Behavior Society

This is a nice page that posts a wide variety of jobs all related to animal behavior. I know the Ketterson lab often posts here, and I have in the past. There are some jobs that pay and some that are volunteer posistions, but are in neat places. This is a general list and not all of the posts are jobs. I’ve not subscribed but it may be possible.

Evoldir

Mostly behavior and evolution jobs. Has a mix of both field and lab stuff. Advertises temp jobs, field positions, graduate lines, grants, and conferences all related to evolution. I actually troll this site for tenure track positions. Scroll to the bottom to the folder marked as “Jobs”. You can subscribe for e-mails that come at 3am.
