Ph.D. Assistantship - Growth, movement and survival of individual Atlantic
salmon in Catamaran Brook, New Brunswick.

An assistantship through the University of Massachusetts-Amherst,
Department of Natural Resources Conservation or Organismic and Evolutionary
Biology Program or The University of New Brunswick, Department of Biology
for 2000 is available to a highly motivated student with an interest in
field studies involving individual stream salmonids in small coldwater
streams. The assistantship forms part of a collaboration between the
laboratories of Dr. Ben Letcher (Conte Anadromous Fish Research
Center/UMass) and Dr. Rick Cunjak (University of New Brunswick). Depending
on the interests of the student, the assistantship could be held at either
university. Enrollment will be for Fall 2000, but field work could begin as
early as May, 2000.

The research project involves tagging and resampling individual Atlantic
salmon in Catamaran Brook, New Brunswick to determine individual growth
rates, movement rates and survival. The research is part of a series of
similar studies (West Brook, Massachusetts; Pleasant River, Maine) that is
designed to examine growth/survival/movement of individuals within the
context of a range of latitudinal (South to North) and manipulation (all
stocked fish to all wild) gradients. The remote location of the study site
requires a student with the ability to work independently and in
occasionally harsh environments. We expect that the student will spend
extended periods at the field site.

Qualifications include an M.S. in biology, ecology, fisheries biology or a
related field, and experience with or interest in field studies on
individual salmonids. Stipend and full tuition waiver provided (UMass). To
apply, send a letter of intent, copies of transcripts (can be unofficial)
and GRE scores (UMass), names and contact information of three references
to Dr. Ben Letcher at the Conte Lab address below.
