Biology MS Assistantships, Texas A&M University
« on: Jan 28, 2010, 12:00 PM »
We are seeking two highly motivated graduate students to participate in research on the population genetics and conservation of fish species native to eastern California. The species of concern include tui chub (Siphateles bicolor), speckled dace (Rhinichthys osculus), sucker (Catostomus fumeiventris), and pupfish (Cyprinodon amargosae). Students will have opportunities to interact and coordinate their research with collaborators at the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the U. S. National Park Service, and California Department of Fish & Game.

Students will present their findings in international/national professional conferences and prepare manuscripts for submission to peer-reviewed journals. We welcome students who are diligent and interested in fish evolution, ecology and conservation. Experience in population genetics, ichthyology, geographic information systems (GIS), freshwater ecology, and/or fish breeding/husbandry would be helpful.

Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi is a vibrant and growing university of approximately 9,500 students located on Ward Island between Oso and Corpus Christi bays. The appointments would be in the Department of Life Sciences which offers MS degrees in Biology and Marine Biology, and a PhD in Marine Biology.

We will provide support (salary & tuition) via research and teaching assistantships starting in June, 2010. Interested students should contact Dr. Frank Pezold by email for more information by March 1, 2010 and include a curriculum vitae.
