PhD and MSc Positions, Fisheries Genomics
Dalhousie University / Fisheries and Oceans Canada
MSc and PhD graduate student positions are available in the Department of Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, working on the conservation genomics of Atlantic salmon and Atlantic cod in Newfoundland and Labrador. These projects are part of a collaboration between Paul Bentzen (Dalhousie University) and Ian Bradbury (Fisheries and Oceans Canada, DFO). The successful candidates will join a team of researchers conducting research on similar themes in a variety of marine and freshwater organisms. The projects will entail use of next generation sequencing approaches to resolve signatures of adaptation across genomes and populations, and the use of molecular tools in mixture analysis and assignment.
