MS Graduate Research Assistantship
The prospective graduate student will develop their MS thesis within the overall framework of a study designed to quantify pelican predation effects on Bonneville cutthroat trout in stunning Strawberry Reservoir, north-central Utah.
Many opportunities to join the Fish Ecology Lab are available to Graduate School candidates, Post-Doctoral Fellow candidates, Technicians, and Internship candidates.
I am currently seeking motivated and independent post-doctoral candidates who are interested in drafting a NSF post-doctoral fellowship proposal to work on fish population dynamics and climate change associated with the Toolik NSF LTER program, located in northern Alaska.
