|Title||Ph.D. grad assistantship in genetics|
|Agency, Location||Labrador Institute / Marine Institute of Memorial Univ|
|End Date||Until filled|
Ph.D. graduate assistantship to determine whether the Atlantic salmon population in Lake Melville (Labrador, Canada) is genetically distinct. A secondary objective is to locate the currently unknown river of origin of Atlantic salmon using otolith microchemistry analysis. This project is part of a larger research program aimed at generating knowledge to assist in fishery management and species conservation in the context of rapid economic growth (e.g., hydroelectric development, road constructions and mining). The student will be co-supervised by Ian Bradbury (Department of Fisheries and Oceans) and Marine Clément (Memorial University).
This position is open to all candidates holding an M.Sc. degree in biology, but experience in the field of genetics will be a significant asset.
