Walleye movement ecology in Lake Winnipeg (MSc)
We are seeking a motivated and self-directed student at the MSc level to evaluate both historical tagging data and data from an extensive acoustic telemetry study currently underway in Lake Winnipeg. Students will have opportunities to work with collaborators through Fisheries and Oceans Canada and and the Province of Manitoba, and interact with a diverse group of researchers at the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg, and Lakehead University.
Interested applicants should contact Dr. Mike Rennie through the contact form on this website for more information immediately. Application deadlines for Lakehead University to begin a program of study January 1st, 2018 (our target start date) is Sept. 30, 2017. Ultimately students will be asked for an application that includes a CV, unofficial transcripts and a letter of interest in the position. While the position is theoretically open to all potential applicants, funding is sufficient to support only domestic (Canadian) students; international students interested in the position would require additional scholarship support to be considered.
Thunder Bay is a vibrant and beautiful location on the rugged North Shore of Lake Superior. Come join a growing and diverse lab of interesting individuals working on a broad range of topics in aquatic ecology. See our people and research pages for a description of some of the work currently under way in the lab.
