|Title||M.S. position – stream ecosystem responses to fish migrations|
|Agency, Location||Cornell University Dept of Natural Resources & Environment|
|Salary||$33k annual, via a mixture of Research and Teaching Assistantships|
The McIntyre research group is seeking a new M.S. student to study the ecosystem consequences of restoring fish migrations into tributaries of the Great Lakes. The project, funded by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, will focus on nutrient and energy dynamics in Michigan’s Boardman River, where an innovative approach to selective passage of migratory fish is being developed.
The ideal candidate will have experience in stream ecology or biogeochemical research, as well as general interests in fisheries, landscape ecology, and ecosystem restoration. We will favor candidates who are familiar with methods of quantifying aquatic ecosystem processes, embrace collaborative research, and have excellent communication skills. Fieldwork in Michigan will be required. The graduate position will start in Summer 2021, and paid field work may begin earlier.
Ad Closing Date: Applications preferred by 1 December, but can consider through 31 Dec.
