Dr. Elizabeth Marschall has up to two openings for M.S. or Ph.D. students in two research areas: 1) To study how yellow perch (Perca flavescens) response to spatial and temporal changes in habitat (e.g., dissolved oxygen and temperature) lead to shifts in their spatial and temporal distributions in Lake Erie. This project will combine habitat and fish-behavior modeling with field tests and refinements of the models. 2) To study the interaction between life histories, local adaptations, and climate change via development of eco-evolutionary models.
Students must be creative, motivated, and capable of working effectively both independently and in collaborative groups. Students must have strong writing and quantitative skills.
