MSc, PhD, and PDF positions available – Amphibian occupancy patterns, population genetics, and disease dynamics
Funded by a Strategic NSERC grant (2014), we are building a team of 4 PhD students, 2 MSc students, and 2 post-doctoral fellows, to work on research related to the detection and monitoring of amphibians and their pathogens (chytrid fungus, ranavirus) in Canada. Using environmental DNA as a basis for the research, the team will conduct: 1) Habitat occupancy modeling for amphibians and their pathogens; 2) Analysis of the evolutionary dynamics of pathogens and amphibian hosts; 3) Assessment of potential synergistic interactions between pathogens and aquatic contaminants; and 4) Modeling the drivers of amphibian population decline. Students will develop research projects that fit within the context of the broader program, such as: Validation of eDNA for detecting amphibians; Assessment of ranavirus pathogenicity; Chytrid fungus evolutionary dynamics; and Modeling drivers of amphibian occupancy. We are seeking students to initiate their research in Spring or Fall 2015, with the research to be conducted across southern Ontario. Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest, CV, unofficial transcripts and names of 3 references to: Dennis Murray, Trent University, firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com), or to individual research team members: Craig Brunetti, Trent University firstname.lastname@example.org (www.brunettilab.com); Chris Kyle, Trent University email@example.com (http://kylelab.nrdpfc.ca); David Green, McGill University firstname.lastname@example.org (http://redpath-staff.mcgill.ca/green/David%20Green’s%20Home%20Page%20frames.htm); David Lesbarreres, Laurentian University email@example.com (http://gearg.jimdo.com/people/head/); Marie-Josee Fortin, University of Toronto firstname.lastname@example.org (//labs.eeb.utoronto.ca/fortin); Chris Wilson, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry email@example.com (http://web.nrdpfc.ca/cwilson.htm); Christine Bishop, Environment Canada firstname.lastname@example.org (http://christinebishop.blogspot.ca)
