The research teams of Dr. Andrew Rypel and Dr. Nann Fangue at UC Davis seek applicants for a PhD student co-advised in both of our labs. The successful candidate will work with a diversity of scientists and fisheries biologists in California to maintain and further develop an existing large open-access database of fish telemetry studies conducted in California. Topic areas for research are open within this context and could integrate other large open access datasets on fisheries and aquatic ecology. The student would be a member of the Graduate Group in Ecology (GGE) or the Animal Biology Graduate Group (ABGG) at UC Davis.
The ideal candidate would have a Master’s degree, and a background or interest in fish ecology, movement ecology, and data/synthesis science. Previous experience working with SQL is a plus, as would be interest in collaborating with natural resource decision makers.
Interested candidates should submit:
a) a one‐page cover letter,
b) your CV, and
c) names and contact information of at least two references familiar with your work.
Please submit materials to Andrew Rypel (email@example.com), with « Fish Ecology and Data Science PhD application » in the subject. Applications will be reviewed as they arrive, and the position will remain open until filled with a preferred start of fall 2021.
