Longevity, late age to sexual maturity and intermittent spawning are all life history characteristics that make Lake Sturgeon vulnerable to human impact such as over-fishing and hydroelectric generation. Provincial, First Nation, Industry and Federal bodies have used conservation aquaculture and stock enhancement approaches as a mitigative strategy to protect and sustain threatened or endangered populations of Lake Sturgeon throughout Manitoba for decades. The successful applicant will join a multidisciplinary group examining the interaction between rearing environment and phenotypic development in Lake Sturgeon populations throughout the Province of Manitoba. The position will involve development of transcriptomic tools to better understand the interaction between rearing environment, genotype and developing phenotype to tailor rearing practices in conservation aquaculture of Lake Sturgeon toward the ultimate goal of increasing fitness potential of the stocked fish. A background in modern molecular techniques such as high throughput sequencing and bioinformatics is desirable. For further information please contact Dr. Ken Jeffries ([email protected]) or W. Gary Anderson ([email protected]).
Postdoctoral Position in Fish MigrationJune 8, 2021
The Project The Salmon Watersheds Lab (www.jonwmoore.org) and collaborators at Simon Fraser University (SFU) are currently seeking a Postdoctoral fellow to work on a project entitled “Landslide Impact on Flow Dynamics, Fish Migration and Genetics of Fraser River Salmon”. The successful candidate will be part of an inter-disciplinary team that aims to understand the impacts of the 2018 Big Bar Landslide on channel morphology, flow dynamics, fish migration, and the genetics of Fraser River Salmon. The natural landslide blocked the Fraser River to salmon passage, devastating salmon runs seeking to return to the Northern Basin. The project is led by a large group of multi-disciplinary investigators from Simon Fraser University, […]
