The Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management (PRTM) at North Carolina State University invites applications for an MS or PhD-level research assistantship beginning in Fall 2020. The successful applicant will work under the supervision of Dr. Lincoln Larson on a study evaluating college students’ beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors related to wildlife conservation and wildlife-related recreation activities (e.g., hunting, fishing, wildlife watching). Particular emphasis will be placed on the outdoor recreation recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) of college students from non-traditional backgrounds. The research project is supported by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission (NC WRC), and it builds on the work of an ongoing U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Multistate Project that includes a team of researchers and practitioners from universities and wildlife agencies across 23 states. Results of the project will inform research and practice that impacts the future of R3 and wildlife conservation efforts across the United States. Click here for more information.
