Research program title
The gene to ecosystem consequences of fisheries-induced evolution on sustainable fisheries
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to advance knowledge of the genomic consequences of fisheries-induced evolution for fish and fisheries. This is an unprecedented opportunity to conduct experimentally-replicated depletion of natural populations of a socio-economically important fish (brook trout) in closed ecosystems where the species is invasive and the target of removal efforts, in exceptionally pristine places (Rocky mountain alpine lakes). The position will be based at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada) and the research offers an outstanding opportunity for training in applied genomics and fisheries science research and is affiliated with an NSERC Strategic Project between three universities (Concordia University, UQAM, Calgary), Parks Canada, Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development and Fisheries & Oceans Canada.
Academic qualifications required
A PhD in population, evolutionary and/or conservation genomics. ; Aapplicants should also be team-oriented and autonomous, and have a strong publication record and demonstrable quantitative skills (e.g. R stats, bioinformatics); experience with GWAS is an asset.
