Graduate research assistantship available starting winter 2019 to conduct research related to grass carp movement ecology in Lake Erie and surrounding tributaries using acoustic telemetry technology. Project will focus on local-scale habitat use in addition to broad-scale movements in Lake Erie tributaries and Lake Erie proper. If a Ph.D. project, additional research into mark/recapture modeling approaches appropriate for acoustic telemetry detection data. Project aim is to provide information for designing strategies for controlling/reducing grass carp populations in Lake Erie; opportunities to participate in control actions will be available.
B.S. in fisheries, environmental science, or related field (M.S. degree if applying for Ph.D. program). Aptitude/interest in fish ecology/population dynamics and application of statistics to natural resources. Strongest applicants will have high GPA/GRE, record of peer-reviewed publications, and experience with acoustic telemetry data and analyses. To apply, submit a letter of application detailing background, accomplishments, talents, skills, and career aspirations and CV (including GPA and GRE scores) to email@example.com.
