Job: Fish Physiology

Title Fish Physiology
Agency, Location Dept of Biology, Univ of Regina
Categories Student
Job # 10470
Salary $17-21,000
End Date 8/31
Responsibilities

M.Sc. or Ph.D. Student
Fish Physiology / Cell and Molecular Biology Research

Graduate student positions in cellular and molecular fish physiology or ecophysiology. My group is looking for 2 highly motivated M.Sc. or Ph.D. candidates to investigate the biology of commercially harvested, temperate, cold-water fishes. Potential research areas include, but are not limited to: 1) The impact of thermal and chemical pollution on developmental physiology and the stress response in Whitefish. 2) The function of thyroid hormones in mitochondrial physiology and biogenesis or thermal adaptation in fish. Research projects may require field work (SK or the Great Lakes) and will involve extensive laboratory activities which ranging from organismal experimental biology to proteomics/metabolomics. Experience in animal physiology or cellular and molecular biology would be an asset, but is not a requirement.

Qualifications

B.Sc. or M.Sc.
