Graduate Opportunity

A graduate opportunity (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) is available to study adaptive differences in juvenile growth and metabolism among different ecotypes of rainbow trout (large lake piscivores vs. insectivores).

Selection for differences in growth is a fundamental driver of adaptive differentiation among species and populations. However, the physiological drivers and consequences of high growth remain poorly understood, as are the ecological tradeoffs that select for differences in growth.

Piscivorous and insectivorous populations of rainbow trout differ in maximum body size and growth, providing a good model for understanding the associations between […]

Postdoctoral position fisheries genomics

We seek a motivated individual to manage a large-scale fisheries genomics project. The incumbent will coordinate sampling and sequencing of several thousand arctic char, arctic cod, and northern shrimp for the purpose of defining and understanding stock populations. He/she will work with the PIs to establish analysis pipelines and support several graduate students who will further use these data for their own specific project goals. Prior project management and next-gen sequencing data analysis experience are a must.

Education requirements:

PhD in computational biology/bioinformatics OR statistics/computer science/math/engineering background with […]

PhD positions in fisheries genomics & conservation

We seek three motivated individuals to undertake large-scale fisheries genomics PhD projects on each of three focal arctic marine species – Arctic char, Arctic cod, and Northern shrimp. Each student will help to assemble and analyze large panels of SNPs from wild caught individuals from the Lower Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic and deploy a range of statistical and spatial approaches to help define demographically independent stocks and understand the potential consequences of a dramatically changing Canadian Arctic on marine biodiversity. Candidates will be part […]
