Please Note: Although several of these positions are terrestrially oriented
I have included them as well in case any of our colleagues in fisheries have
wildlife counterparts that may be interested.

Graduate Assistantships in Fisheries and Wildlife
Wildlife & Fisheries Resources Program
Division of Forestry
West Virginia University

The Wildlife and Fisheries Resources Program of the West Virginia University
is pleased to announce the availability of several research assistantships
(M.S. and doctoral) to study the effects of timber management upon water
quality and aquatic production (1 Ph.D. level position), ruffed grouse
biology (2 M.S. positions), and the effects of gypsy moths on bird habitat
(1 MS or Ph.D.).  All positions will be filled by August 15, 1997.
Prospective students interested in the ruffed grouse study should contact
Dr. Dave Samuel at 304-293-2941 (ext. 2496).  Prospective students for the
gypsy moth/bird habitat study should contact Dr. Robert Whitmore at (304)
293-2941 (ext. 2491).  Students interested in the aquatic ecology project
can find further information below:


The study will involve field studies of Appalachian forested watersheds and
the aquatic biota, laboratory experiments to define the impact of water
quality (e.g. pH, turbidity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, total
alkalinity, aluminum concentration) upon fish and invertebrate production,
and systems modeling of land-use impacts upon production of fish and aquatic

Responsibilities:  The graduate student will be involved with all areas of
the study.  This is a long-term study so a great deal of latitude exists for
the student to carve out their own niche within the broader, long-term
objectives of the study.  The student will be expected to conduct research
pursuant to the project objectives and participate in written reports of
study progress and findings ultimately leading to the student's dissertation.

Qualifications:  The successful applicant must have completed their Master's
degree in fisheries or aquatic sciences (or a similar field) or be
exceptionally prepared to undertake a PhD program directly from the
B.S./B.A. level.  Experience or interest in all areas of this study (field,
laboratory, and modeling) is expected of the student.  Knowledge of small
stream communities including fish and invertebrate identification is
helpful.  Student must also be familiar with computer use.  West Virginia
University requires a minimum of 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) and GRE scores for
acceptance into the graduate program.
