Research in the Fish Ecology Lab at Kansas State University: focuses on the conservation of aquatic systems in the western and central U.S. Current and past projects can be classified into three general areas: 1) effects of global change on diversity-ecosystem function relationships in streams, 2) evaluation of patterns and processes regulating species diversity and habitat associations of fishes in streams and reservoirs, and 3) dynamics of non-coevolved fish assemblages.
Seeking a highly motivated student to evaluate the effects of sediment releases from Tuttle Creek Reservoir on fish communities downstream in the Big Blue and Kansas rivers. The student will take part in a larger effort exploring the use of water injection dredging as a means to mitigate the filling of reservoirs with sediment.
The project is a collaborative research effort with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas Department of Parks and Wildlife and other research partners. Previous experience with field work on rivers operating boats and using a variety of sampling gear such as electrofishing, trawling and seining is preferred.
Qualifications: Undergraduate degree in fisheries with previous experience on rivers operating boats and using a variety of sampling gear such as electrofishing, trawling and seining is preferred.
