We are hiring a MS assistantship focused on human dimensions of wild pigs to include control, harvest, and propagation. The work from this program will help inform future outreach efforts on control, and the understanding of recreational harvest of wild pigs. The student will examine many aspects of control effectiveness, and generate recommendations for changes and improvements to control strategies, educational outreach to the public, and an overall state of wildlife damage management related to wild pigs.
This is a fully-supported MS program including stipend, tuition and fees, and health insurance. The student will be based in College Station, Texas. Although it is a human-dimensions project, there will be ample opportunity for field experiences, include wild pig trapping, processing, and recreational harvest. The student can expect to travel widely across the State of Texas, and beyond.
