The Gray Lab, in collaboration with Aquatics Extension Specialist Eugene Braig, at The Ohio State University’s School of Environment and Natural Resources are seeking a MS student to work on a funded project starting in Autumn 2018 (with the possibility of a pre-enrollment field season in Summer 2018). The project aims to determine the response of water quality and fish populations to a variety of commonly used mitigation strategies in rural Ohio ponds. The successful candidate will be expected to run a fairly extensive field-based project of repeated surveys of the chemical, physical, and biological components of water quality in largely agricultural ponds. The student will also learn lab-based analysis techniques for water quality, macroinvertebrate and fish assemblages, etc.
Please see our website for more information.
We are seeking highly qualified students with competitive GPA and GRE scores, experience working in aquatic ecosystems, and who are highly motivated to pursue an advanced degree in this field.
Interested students should contact Dr. Suzanne Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mr. Eugene Braig (email@example.com) directly via email, with “MS position - ponds” as the subject line. Please include a cover letter briefly describing your research interests, a curriculum vitae, GRE scores, unofficial undergraduate/graduate transcripts, and contact information for three references – preferably as a single PDF. Review of applicants will begin immediately.
