Posted by jess   |   May 22, 2019

Beginning immediately, a post-doctoral researcher is required to work on the Mactaquac Aquatic Ecosystem Study’s fish passage portfolio with the Canadian Rivers Institute at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada (see our profile at  The ideal candidate will be ready to quickly join our team working on assessing efficiencies for upstream and downstream passage at the Mactaquac Hydroelectric Generating Station.  Experiences we are seeking will involve use of acoustic counting (ARIS sonar technology) and PIT technologies in the upstream fish trap, and HTI-Vemco technologies in the tailrace which includes models developing from ELAM-based fish behaviour and FLOW-3D models.  Downstream efficiencies to be examined will be turbine passage for young-of-the-year river herring species and assessing a new by-pass for Atlantic salmon smolts (acoustic and radio tracking technologies).  Experience with Delft3D modelling will be an asset.  The position will begin immediately, starting as a 1-year appointment at $50,000/year.  The position is has a strong potential to evolve into a longer term, research associate appointment at UNB.

Every research that takes place by someone who is already a PhD holder, is post-doctoral research. There is not any degree for that, UK Assignment Writing available.
