We are looking to recruit a graduate student (MS or PhD level) this fall, with the hopes to start sometime in early 2021.
Our goal is to begin evaluating applications starting by the end of October, hopefully getting folks for interviews during November. The position will be to participate in a broad-scale study of the influence of dams on riverine fish populations. The overall project is combining field sampling and tracking, laboratory respirometry and swimming performance studies, hard part chemistry, energetics and modeling, etc., all in a collaborative research effort.
Additional details can be found at http://auburn.edu/~devridr/GRAs/Auburn_GRA_announcement_2020.pdf.
Students are expected to conduct their thesis/dissertation research project and complete required course work. Students will receive a stipend (currently approx. $17,000/year [MS level] – $19,000/year [PhD level]), waiver of both in-state and out-of-state tuition, as well as required technical help, all costs of conducting the research (including travel to field sites, supplies and equipment, etc.), and travel to scientific meetings.
To apply send a letter of interest, along with a current CV (including GPA and GRE scores, if available), contact information for three (3) references, and copies of transcripts to: Dennis DeVries, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional information, please contact either:
