Interested individuals should submit their transcripts, resume, and a letter detailing their interest and relevant background to Professors Don Jackson ([email protected]) and Cindy Chu ([email protected]) and as soon as possible and no later than early January 2017.   Please include “Fisheries Doctoral Position” in the subject line of your email.
