We are seeking a PhD student to conduct research examining deterrence potential of existing water control structures for limiting invasive carp movements while promoting connectivity for native big river fishes in the Yazoo River basin in the lower MS River region. The project is a collaborative effort between USFWS, USGS, the Army COE, Auburn University, and NC State University. The student will be co-mentored by Dr. Shannon Brewer and Dr. Corey Dunn though the student will reside at Auburn University.
Student should have a MS degree in Fisheries, Ecology, Biology or related field. The student should have some knowledge of acoustic telemetry and experience operating boats on big rivers. An interest in sharpening quantitative skills is desired and the student should have some experience writing manuscripts (a manuscript draft should be provided as an example of writing). Interested applicants should submit their CV, cover letter, a copy of their transcripts, writing sample (see above), and contact information for three professional references to Dr. Shannon Brewer with "Yazoo River Fish Movement" in the subject line of the email. The position will be open until filled with a qualified applicant. There is flexibility on start date- the right applicant could start as a technician if in between semesters but graduate student admissions must be completed by June 7 for an August 2023 start or Nov 10 for a Jan 2024 start. Applications will be reviewed regularly with the first review occurring on 6/10/2023.
