Fish Ecophysiology MS position- Auburn University

We are seeking interested and qualified applicants for a graduate student (GRA) position at the MS level to work on a project studying the ecophysiology of nongame riverine fishes in the US southeast.  Recent work in our lab has combined respirometry, swimming performance, critical temperature limits, and cellular thermal effects within a species.  We continue to build on this research by investigating a spectrum of species to more broadly study the effects of dams on fishes, and the abilities of fishes to navigate potential passage structures.  At a broader level, our lab is involved in a large-scale, comprehensive study of the influence of dams on riverine fish populations, and the work of this new graduate student will represent an important and integral aspect of that work.
