We would like to report an exciting fully funded Ph.D. opportunity 
through the University of Victoria
(UVic) to develop environmental DNA (eDNA) as a tool for monitoring 
Oolichan (Eulachon,
Thaleichthys pacificus) populations in British Columbia. The stipend 
will be $24,000 per year for four
years and will include a field travel budget and all field and research 
expenses covered. The student
will become a key team member in the Conservation and Recovery Research 
on Oolichan in Haisla
Territory Project (CAROOHT). The CAROOHT project will be conducted over 
five years in a
collaboration between LNG Canada, Haisla Nation, Ecofish Research, DFO 
Science and Fisheries
Management, as well as the University of Northern British Columbia 
(UNBC), Simon Fraser
University (SFU), and UVic.

The “eDNA as a tool for monitoring Oolichan” Ph.D. will be based out of 
UVic and will include
fieldwork to collect eDNA samples in remote rivers in Douglas Channel 
and Gardner Canal working
with Haisla Nation and Ecofish Research staff. Some initial Oolichan 
eDNA data have already been
collected, which will be used as a starting point for a quantitative 
Ph.D. to develop eDNA as a tool
for monitoring Oolichan, including assessment of the presence, 
distribution and run-timing of
spawning adults and estimating stock biomass during larval Oolichan 

This Ph.D. will be supervised by Francis Juanes in Biology at UVic and 
will be supported by Caren
Helbing (Biochemistry and Microbiology at UVic), Mary Lesperance 
(Mathematics and Statistics at
UVic) and Morgan Hocking (Ecofish Research and School of Environmental 
Studies at UVic).

If you have the following qualifications and are looking for an exciting 
and challenging opportunity,
we would like to hear from you.
• M.Sc. in Biology or related field an asset
• Applied fisheries focus, fisheries experience an asset
• Quantitative skills required, including statistical modelling using R 
or equivalent
• Experience with eDNA or other genomic tools an asset, although focus 
will be on the
application of the results rather than lab processing of the data for 
the Ph.D. program
• Effective analytical and technical writing skills, and ability to 
produce high quality reports
and peer-reviewed articles
• Excellent time management, organizational and multi-tasking skills
• Strong attention to detail with a commitment to quality, excellence, 
and ethics

Desired start date is September 2021 or January 2022. Interested 
applicants can send a resume and
cover letter that clearly identifies their experience to
