|Title||Graduate positions available in fisheries genetics|
|Agency, Location||Purdue University, Indiana|
|Salary||Graduate stipends are highly competitive (~24k/year), comprehensive health insurance is included, and cost of living is low.|
Graduate positions are available in the Christie Lab (http://christielab.bio.purdue.edu/) at Purdue University for highly-motivated candidates interested in genetic adaptation, dispersal, conservation and population genetics.
Potential projects include: (1) Examining the rapid genetic adaptation of introduced fishes into the Great Lakes, (2) Identifying the genetic and evolutionary consequences of domestication, captive breeding, and supplementation of wild populations, and (3) Using existing and novel approaches to determine patterns of dispersal and gene flow within a metapopulation context. These are the main research themes in the Christie laboratory, and much research focuses on fishes, but graduate students are free to explore independent lines of inquiry in any system. Previous research experience with molecular techniques, computational work, statistics, genetics, bioinformatics, and assisting with the design and implementation of experiments will be highly regarded.
