We are seeking a PhD student to join us to work on an Ohio Sea Grant funded project that will integrate the responses of game fish and anglers to harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. The position will start in Autumn 2018 and be co-advised by Dr. Suzanne Gray and Dr. Jeremy Bruskotter in the School of Environment and Natural Resources, The Ohio State University. Students will spend most of their time in Columbus, Ohio with ~2 month field seasons on Lake Erie during the summer months.
Interested students should contact Dr. Suzanne Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly via email, with “Graduate position - fisheries” as the subject line by Dec. 15th. 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.
We are specifically seeking a highly qualified student with competitive GPA and GRE scores, experience working in aquatic ecosystems, and who is highly motivated to pursue an advanced degree in this field. Preference will be given to students who have completed (or will soon complete) a MSc degree in a fisheries science related-field and/or have experience modeling complex systems (e.g. hierarchical modeling, path analysis, etc.).
