stable isotope ecology ideal, but not required.
Support in the form of tuition and a stipend is provided for the first year
of the program only. The student, with assistance from faculty advisor, will
be required to secure any additional funding required until project
The student will pursue an MSc in Oceanography or Marine Biology through the
