Incumbent will step into a three-year study on the energetic cost of delay in upstream
migrating adult Atlantic salmon in Maine. The project will use radio telemetry, physiological monitoring
and thermal experience to construct a bioenergetic model characterizing migratory, reproductive and
survival costs of delay. This is a quantitatively intense study. While telemetry and bioenergetic modeling
experience would be desirable, a willingness to learn is a necessity. Good communication skills are
essential as this project will be collaborative with the State of Maine, NOAA and USFWS. One to two
semesters of TA support are anticipated.
B.S. in biology or equivalent, quantitative skills, interest in fisheries science and excellent
work ethics. GPA of 3.2+ and GREs >50 th percentile desired.
