Incumbent will step into a three-year study on the energetic cost of delay in upstream migrating adult Atlantic salmon in Maine. The project will use radio telemetry, physiological monitoring and thermal experience to construct a bioenergetic model characterizing migratory, reproductive and survival costs of delay. This is a quantitatively intense study. While telemetry and bioenergetic modeling experience would be desirable, a willingness to learn is a necessity. Good communication skills are essential as this project will be collaborative with the State of Maine, NOAA and USFWS. One to two semesters of TA support are anticipated.
B.S. in biology or equivalent, quantitative skills, interest in fisheries science and excellent work ethics. GPA of 3.2+ and GREs >50th percentile desired. Send CV, transcript copies, GRE scores, and 3 references (names and contact information) to Joe Zydlewski (email firstname.lastname@example.org)
