The graduate research assistantship will be funded through the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation to develop and evaluate an effective stream-sampling program for the Ozark region. The sampling program will focus on detecting changes in stream-fish populations with flow alterations. The developed sampling protocol will ensure catch can be adjusted as gear efficiency changes with discharge and other physical-habitat conditions. The student associated with the project will be encouraged to develop additional objectives that complement the central theme of the assistantship.

Qualifications

i) A Master’s degree in biology, ecology, fisheries, or related field, ii) knowledge of mark-recapture analyses, iii) good working knowledge of statistics, iv) excellent written and oral communication skills, v) willingness to perform field work under sometimes adverse conditions.
