The Division of Forestry and Natural Resources at West Virginia University is searching for a Ph.D. student to study the genomics of game fish in West Virginia. Genomic tools will be used to assess population structure and diversity of several game fish species in the state (e.g., walleye, black bass). The student will also work closely with the state agency to interpret results in a management context. Funding for four years will be provided through a research assistantship. Review of
applications will begin March 22 and will continue until the position is filled.
Interested individuals should send a letter of interest, CV, unofficial copies of transcripts and GRE scores, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Amy Welsh at firstname.lastname@example.org
M.S. in fisheries, wildlife, biology, genetics, or related field. Laboratory experience in genetic techniques required.
