Subject: MS or PhD position, please pass along

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I'm currently looking for a graduate student with an interest in large river fish ecology and conservation.  If you know anyone that might be interested, please pass along the following information.

Best wishes,


MS or PhD Position in River Fish Ecology and Conservation

Division of Biology

Kansas State University

Salary: $27,300 per year. Tuition is paid in full.  Health insurance plan is available.

Closing date:  October 15th, 2019.  Start date: Spring 2020

Description:  Seeking a highly motivated student to investigate the population dynamics of threatened and endangered fishes in the San Juan River, New Mexico and Utah.  The San Juan River is a major tributary in the Colorado River basin that is partly regulated by releases from Navajo Dam, NM and is constrained downstream by Lake Powell, UT.  In addition to the occurrence of federally endangered razorback sucker and Colorado pikeminnow, species such as flannelmouth sucker, blueheaded sucker and roundtail chub are part of the native fauna.  The student will be involved in a highly collaborative and multi-agency project investigating factors influencing success of native fishes, including access to adequate spawning habitats, interactions with nonnative fishes and resource acquisition.  It is likely the student will be involved in a large-scale telemetry (radio and PIT tagging) and population genetics study.

Qualifications:  We are considering either a MS or PhD student with a strong background in fisheries research.  There is a large field component involving travel to and camping in remote locations.  The student should have experience working in lotic systems and familiarity with basic sampling methods.

Application:  To apply, please send an e-mail to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> with a statement of interest and relevant qualifications.  In addition, attach an updated CV with relevant information (grades, GRE scores) and contact information for three references.
