Graduate Assistantships Available in Great Plains Fish Ecology, Spring 2014‏

Three research assistantships (PhD and MS) are available for spring semester, 2014, to work on patterns, drivers, and consequences of fish distribution and movement in Great Plains streams, rivers, and reservoirs. These opportunities interface basic ecology and applied fisheries/watershed management within a very active ecology community at Kansas State University in cooperation with progressive and interactive state resource managers.

Within the scope of the two funded projects, students will develop a basic ecology research project with management implications.  These funded research areas are: (1) Controls on predator survival and related ecosystem effects, and (2) Coupled climate, cultivation, culture, and fish communities.  More details are included on the attached flyer.

Projects will start January 1, 2014. The stipend is $21,000 per calendar year plus a tuition waiver. Applications received before October 15, 2013 will have the best chance for acceptance.

Interested applicants should send me, via email, a CV; an unofficial copy of transcript(s); a 1-2 page letter describing career goals, research interests, and relevant experience; and names (with contact information) for 3 references.

Applicants will also need to formally apply to the graduate program within the Division of Biology at Kansas State University
