*Notice of Recruitment: Ph.D. Graduate Research Assistantship in Fishery 
Science, University of Alaska Fairbanks, Juneau Center, School of 
Fisheries and Ocean Sciences*

*Research focus:*  This Ph.D. dissertation research is involves a 
project, titled /"Multi-species Biomass Dynamics Model for the eastern 
Bering Sea",/ with co-PIs Gordon Kruse and Franz Mueter. The goal is to 
examine multi-species interactions among a group of commercially 
important fish and invertebrate species. The model will include 3-5 
species or species groups (functional groups) for which there is 
evidence of covariation and based on life-history characteristics of 
each species (diet, habitat requirements, timing of spawning, etc.). In 
addition to interaction terms among species, such as competition and 
predation, the model will be extended to include shared climate effects 
on productivity and on the strength and magnitude of predator-prey or 
competitive interactions.

*Starting date:* Fall 2009 (or until filled).

*Qualifications:* The incumbent must have a master's degree in a 
fisheries-related field, meet requirements for the UAF graduate school 
and the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, and have a strong 
background and interest in quantitative fisheries, good communication 
and interpersonal skills, and a strong work ethic. Experience with 
statistical modeling, simulation modeling, and computer programming is 
an asset.

*Salary:* $23.02 per hour during first 9 month academic year (20 hr/wk), 
then $23.02/hr during summer (40 hr/wk). Once the student passes a 
comprehensive examination and files for advancement to candidacy, the 
salary increases to $25.53 per hour. Funding also covers tuition 
($2,800/semester for instate or $5,800/semester for out-of-state) and 
approximately $1,200 per year for a university health insurance policy.

*Contact:* Dr. Gordon Kruse ([log in to unmask]) or Dr. Franz Mueter 
([log in to unmask]) for project information; for information 
on the UAF graduate program and how to apply; for information on applying to UAF, and for specific admissions information for 
the fisheries program. 

For application questions, contact Madeline Scholl 
([log in to unmask]; 907-474-7289). In the personal statement, 
indicate your interest in this assistantship with Dr. Gordon Kruse and 
Franz Mueter.
