Graduate position: UIdaho.NativeTroutAdaptiveCapacity


We seek a highly motivated student for a Ph.D. position at the
University of Idaho in the recently funded NSF-EPSCoR GEM3 program
(  The program seeks to understand how
genetic diversity and phenotypic plasticity affect species response
to environmental change, shaping both population response and adaptive
capacity.  The program is focused primarily on two taxa: redband trout,
a subspecies of rainbow trout, and sagebrush.  These taxa are integral
to aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems across the American West and
are central to land-use management decisions that drive the economy of
the region.

The Ph.D. student will join an interdisciplinary cohort of postdoctoral
researchers and students working at scales from genomic characterization
of physiological traits in trout and sagebrush, to mapping and modeling
of complex ecological, evolutionary, and social-economic systems.

This advertised Ph.D. position is dedicated to redband trout. Research
will focus on the phenotypic and genetic diversity of native trout
populations in the Intermountain West. The student will be working as
part of a collaborative research team studying adaptive capacity in
native trout populations with a combination of physiology and genomics.

MS in biological sciences or related field. Preference for a student
with prior research experience in fish physiology, energetics,
cardiorespiratory and/or genotype-to-phenotype analyses of fishes.

Up to $28,000/yr plus tuition and fees

Start date:
May or September of 2019

Send letter of interest, curriculum vitae, GRE scores, unofficial
transcripts, and the contact information for three references to Dr. Brian
Small, Review of applications will begin immediately;
for full consideration please apply before March 15, 2019.
