Research Opportunity: Postdoctoral Position

Jan 7, 2022

The Nova Scotia Salmon Association and its partners are offering a 2-year postdoctoral position in Atlantic salmon research.

From the project description: “To further understand how freshwater conditions are influencing Atlantic salmon populations, this study will aim to identify changes in biological characteristics (e.g., size-at-age, growth) of juvenile Atlantic salmon over the past 50 years and investigate the relationships to historical freshwater environmental factors (e.g., water temperature and flow). The project will make use of an existing 50-year dataset from two index rivers of eastern North America – the Miramichi and Restigouche rivers – to address questions related to the fitness of juvenile salmon when they migrate from freshwater to the ocean.”
