Ph.D. and M.S. Graduate Research Assistantships: Fish Ecology
Auburn University, School of Fisheries, Aquaculture & Aquatic Sciences
We are seeking interested and qualified applicants for 2-3 graduate student positions at either the MS or PhD level to participate in a large scale, comprehensive study of the influence of dams on riverine fish populations. The overall project is combining field sampling and tracking, laboratory experiments, and hydrological /behavioral simulation modeling components, all in a collaborative research effort. The projects on which these particular assistantships would be working would include effects of large lock-and-dam systems on riverine fishes, potential for fish to pass structures using spillways and lock chambers, effects of flow and temperature changes due to hydropower dams on fish movement, diet, and energetics, and use of hard part microchemistry to study natal origins and fish movement as a response to the presence of dams.
