A Graduate Assistantship to conduct research on the conservation genomics of freshwater mussels is available in the Aquatic Biodiversity & Conservation Laboratory (https://miamioh.edu/cas/academics/departments/biology/about/faculty/berg/index.html) at Miami University, Oxford, OH. Funding from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will support the use of genomic approaches to assess parentage and genetic variation of captive-raised mussels to be used for population restoration and to provide guidance to agencies charged with protection of endangered and threatened species. Compensation includes a full waiver of in-state and out-of-state tuition, a competitive academic-year stipend, and summer salary.
