PhD Opportunity: Assessment of smolt-to-adult supplementation strategy for Atlantic Salmon

Posted by CRI Programs   |   April 6, 2017

PhD Opportunity Beginning Summer 2017 (UNB Fredericton)

Collaboration for Atlantic Salmon Tomorrow (CAST) is a partnership of scientists, environmental groups, governments, and industry who focus on understanding recent declines in wild Atlantic salmon populations and developing management tools to reverse and sustain populations for the long term. We are seeking a mature and experienced Ph.D. candidate to a project evaluating the benefi ts and risks of smolt-to-adult supplementation strategy in a controlled field environment (experimental stream). The experiments will include radio and PIT telemetry, large-scale electrofishing surveys, assessment of parentage using genetic (SNP) tools, assessment of fish growth, survival and behaviour. The selected candidate will have previous experience running a field-work based program. Good analytical skills, demonstrated ability to write scientific articles and experience with telemetry or use of genetic tools are an asset. This is a fully funded opportunity (stipend + tuition), which will begin in the summer of 2017. The deadline is May 22, 2017, but the call will remain open until we have found a suitable candidate. Please indicate “CAST PhD APPLICATION” in the subject line of your application email.

Please send a cover letter, CV, transcript from your current degree (unofficial is acceptable) and names of three references to:
Tommi Linnansaari, CAST
Canadian Rivers Institute
Biology, Forestry, and Environmental Management
University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, E3B 5A3
