The Molecular Conservation Genetics Lab at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point seeks an MS student to apply genetic tools to evaluate brook trout hatchery supplementation practices. The position will involve collection and analysis of genetic data to perform pedigree reconstruction and quantify genetic diversity of wild and domesticated populations in order to identify factors that contribute to brook trout stocking success in Wisconsin. The student will work closely with biologists from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources throughout their research. Limited opportunities for field work will also be available.
BS in Fisheries, Biology, Ecology or related field. Experience in generating and/or analyzing genetic data is preferred, but not strictly required.
To apply, please email cover letter, CV/resume, unofficial transcripts, and contact information for three references to Jared Homola (email@example.com). Additional questions regarding the project should be sent via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
