Fully-Funded M.Sc., M.A., Ph.D. and Post-Doctoral Positions: Genomic Network for Fish Identification, Stress and Health

 
Join a revolution in freshwater fish conservation!

Our Canada-wide, multi-million-dollar program will be a game-changer for freshwater fish management and conservation. We are looking for science and social science graduate students to: • Get in on the ground floor in the rapidly growing area of environmental DNA research;  • Be part of the largest aquatic eDNA experiment ever undertaken; • Develop the first universal transcriptional array for freshwater fish; • Be among the first to explore the potential ethical and legal challenges in aquatic genomics based research.

Develop a professional network working side-by-side with our partners from academia, industry and government while you work in a state-of-the-art lab or do fieldwork in the most remote areas of Canada…or both!

Opportunities are available for positions in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick starting in 2020 to 2024. Canadian citizens and landed immigrants will be given first consideration.

GEN-FISH is a collaborative research project established by the University of Windsor and partners and funded by Genome Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
