tenure-track, full-time Assistant Professor in Fisheries with a primary
interest in the biology and management of salmonid fishes. The position is

undergraduate levels. We added seven new faculty in 2008 and expect to add
several more during the coming years. Detailed information about the
position can be found on the SFOS website at
