4 PhD Positions at U of T with Don Jackson, OMNR, and DFO

4 PHD POSITIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO – FISH AND AQUATIC ECOLOGY

We seek highly capable and motivated individuals for 4 PhD positions as part of a collaborative research project involving the University of Toronto, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.   Successful applicants will start in May or September 2017 in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Graduate Program at the University of Toronto (http://www.eeb.utoronto.ca/).  Research projects relate to questions regarding how human activities, climate change, habitat quality, and fish community composition influence body size, population growth rates, and overall fish productivity in lakes and rivers.  Projects vary from studies involving considerable amounts of field-based sampling, stable isotope analyses, and population dynamics relationships to those emphasizing modeling body size-spectra relationships and the metabolic theory of ecology.  Students will join an outstanding ecology and evolutionary department and direct collaborations with both faculty, government research scientists and additional external partners.

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.
