MSc Opportunity in Cod Aquaculture
- Funding is available for an MSc project evaluating the biological and aquaculture characteristics of triploid (sterile) cod in comparison to normal diploids.
- The project is funded through Fisheries and Oceans Canada in partnership with Cooke Aquaculture, addressing early sexual maturation as a practical problem in the commercialization of cod aquaculture.
- The starting date will be September 2007.
- Applicants should hold a BSc in Biology and have some practical fish culture experience. Although the degree program will be through UNB (Fredericton), the bulk of the research will be conducted at the DFO St. Andrews Biological Station.
- Applicants should be aware that they would likely reside in St. Andrews but would have to commute to Fredericton for course work.
- Interested applicants should send a statement of interest, resume, academic transcript(s) from previous degree(s) (unofficial copy is acceptable) and the names and contact details for 3 referees who can comment on your research experience/potential.
- We will start evaluating applications in mid-July in the expectation of selecting a student by August 1.
- To apply, or for further information, please contact either Dr. Ed Trippel (email@example.com) or Dr. Tillmann Benfey (firstname.lastname@example.org), who will be co-supervisors of the MSc student.
Students: Dr. Moccia brought this to my attention.
