Wild Trout Research Laboratory, Montana State University,
Bozeman, Montana 59717, USA

Full-time position under the direction of the Water Resources Center
at Montana State University (MSU).  Available immediately.  The
position is jointly funded in one-year increments by the Montana
Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks (MFWP) and the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (USFWS).

Responsibilities:  Start-up, trouble-shoot, operate, and maintain Wild
Trout Research Laboratory (WTRL) aquatic containment systems,
including recirculating process systems, water supply, monitoring
systems, aquaria, and effluent disposal.  Coordinate space,
equipment, and water use among research projects, under the
direction of the MSU Water Resources Center and the WTRL
Steering Committee.  On-call at all times in case of breakdown of
WTRL systems, responsible for remedying such breakdowns, and
responsible for designating alternative personnel to be on-call.
Responsible for insuring adherence to pathogen containment
protocols by all WTRL users, and limiting laboratory access to
authorized users.  May be directly involved in some research projects
as an investigator.

Required Qualifications:  Earned M.S. in fisheries, aquaculture, or
related discipline.  Experience in the culture and maintenance of
experimental aquatic organisms, preferably salmonids, in indoor
laboratory settings using closed, high-intensity, recirculating-water
systems.  Expertise in aquacultural design and engineering and
water quality analysis.  Ability to coordinate and work with diverse
researchers and support personnel.  Budget-management skills.
Preferred qualifications include experience and knowledge of fish
pathogens, fish-disease containment, salmonid hatchery operations,
fish nutrition, and management of wild, recreational fish stocks.

Salary:  $25,000 per annum plus benefits.

The WTRL is a unique, new aquatic research laboratory on the MSU
campus designed to maintain and contain experimental fish and fish
pathogens in closed, indoor, recirculating systems.  It is managed in
partnership by MSU, MFWP, and the USFWS to examine and
explore the biology and pathology of whirling disease, a biologically
and economically important salmonid fish disease.  WTRL research
requires continuous maintenance and containment of experimental
fish and their pathogens under controlled, replicated, and
standardized conditions.

Montana State University, a land-grant institution with about
10,000 students, is a center of wild trout research in the Northern
Rockies.  The Montana Cooperative Fishery Research Unit, the MSU
Water Resources Center, and the regional office of the Montana
Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks (MFWP) are located on
