Undergrad Research Assistant- Fisheries Ecology Research Lab

Are you looking for a summer research opportunity in fisheries science?

The Fisheries Ecology Research Lab at the University of Alaska Fairbanks seeks a motivated undergraduate student to assist with a field research project on estuary food webs in Southeast Alaska. The study will examine the importance of organic matter from terrestrial and freshwater habitats to the nutrition of estuary fishes and invertebrates. The student will work with the research team to collect fish and invertebrates using beach seine in Juneau estuaries. In the lab, the student will gain experience in fish diet analysis and stable isotope sample preparation. The student will become familiar with local marine invertebrate and fish species and develop skills in microscope use and data recording. The project will extend from April 1 – September 30, 2014, but there is some flexibility in the timing of the research assistantship. The student research assistant will receive a part-time work stipend during the academic year and full-time stipend during the summer. The selected student will be expected to present research results at an annual University of Alaska undergraduate symposium. The successful applicant will demonstrate a desire to gain skills in fisheries research, have interest and experience in working outdoors, and possess strong organizational skills. Coursework in biology and/or fisheries is desirable. Support for this project is provided by Alaska EPSCoR and the successful applicant would be a part of the Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center (ACRC) Fellows program. If you are interested in this opportunity, please send a resume, unofficial transcript, and letter of interest to Dr. Anne Beaudreau at by 5 pm on March 14, 2014.
