The research teams of Dr. Andrew Rypel and Dr. Nann Fangue at UC Davis seek applications for two new Junior Specialist positions. The successful candidates will work with graduate students, PIs, biologists and land managers on fish conservation issues in California. Position 1 will assist with our Putah Creek salmon work where we are studying the reanimation of a previously extirpated run of Chinook salmon. Putah Creek is our local watershed in Davis, and this project has high interest within the university and broader Central Valley community. The other JS will assist with our salmon rice project, where we are attempting to grow and study juvenile Chinook salmon on winter-flooded rice fields.

The ideal candidate would have a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field, and a background or interest in fisheries, ecology, and natural resource management. Ability to work and collaborate successfully on large teams is essential. Both projects entail extensive field work with salmon in the fall and winter months in California.
