M.S. position available at the University of Alaska Fairbanks



I am pleased to announce the availability of a M.S. in Fisheries position with the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (SFOS) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) starting in Summer 2016.  The goal of the project is to assess the ecological costs and educational benefits of whale-watching in Juneau, AK using theodolite observations of humpback whales and passenger surveys.  Field work for this project will occur during the summers of 2016 and 2017.



This project is funded by Alaska SeaGrant (https://seagrant.uaf.edu/news/fishlines/2015/november.php).  The research assistantship available for this position includes tuition, health insurance, and a stipend for 2 years.  In addition to meeting the UAF and SFOS graduate admission requirements (https://www.uaf.edu/sfos/academics/apply/graduate-fisheries/), students should have experience conducting behavioral observations of marine mammals and strong quantitative skills. Previous experience in photo-identification, theodolite tracking, and humpback whale behavioral ecology is also desired.



Applications may be submitted through the UAF admissions website: http://www.uaf.edu/admissions/apply/#new. The deadline for Summer admission is May 1, 2016 but applicants are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
