  • Nashelly Meneses, postdoctoral research associate and program coordinator of NAU’s field experience in Conservation Biology, and Russell Benford, assistant research professor, partnered with recruiters from the United States Fish & Wildlife Service to host NAU’s second annual Conservation Careers Symposium from Oct. 17-22 in Socorro, New Mexico. The week-long event allowed 14 undergraduate and graduate students from six regional institutions to help plant native trees, prepare milkweed seeds for cultivation, study yields from native corn crops and maintain foraging habitats for migrating sandhill cranes. The event included resume and job-search workshops and mock-interviews to prepare students for careers in the federal wildlife service.
  • Patrick Hannon, emeritus associate professor in Biological Sciences, was recently appointed to the editorial board of the new international journal, Biology, Engineering and Medicine. The board is comprised of 14 renowned professors from around the world; Hannon is one of two representing universities from the United States.
