Interesting MSc position with Dr. Brian Hayden:
"I am seeking an enthusiastic student to undertake an MSc research project using stable isotopes to examine the migration history and trophic ecology of Atlantic Salmon populations in Eastern Canada. The student will join my research group at the Canadian Rivers Institute in the University of New Brunswick and will work closely with the Stable Isotopes in Nature Laboratory.
Atlantic salmon are a charismatic and economically important species in Atlantic Canada, but regional populations are undergoing a precipitous decline. Identifying the marine feeding grounds of adult salmon is of paramount importance to conservation efforts for this species. A collaboration between the University of New Brunswick, the Canadian Rivers Institute, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Parks Canada aims to identify spatial variation in the marine feeding grounds of discrete populations inhabiting the region. This study will focus on two complementary goals:
Applicants must possess a BSc in Biology or a related discipline and hold a full driving licence. The ideal student will have a background in fish biology and some existing expertise in or knowledge of stable isotope ecology.
