Description: Fully-funded, collaborative project with Ohio Division of Wildlife/Department of Natural Resources deploying side scan sonar for large scale habitat assessment in Ohio reservoirs. This project will involve both field data collection (sidescan sonar imagery and groundtruthing habitat classifications while operating a small boat) and spatial data analysis (GIS, image analysis, programming) to test hypotheses relating aquatic habitat availability and important gamefish species (particularly black bass, crappie, catfish, etc).
Qualifications: Applicants should have some formal background in GIS (coursework or experience), a willingness to learn programming skills (e.g., R, Python, SQL), and be excited about a balance of field AND office work. The student will have regular opportunities to meet and work directly with fisheries professionals at ODOW and financial support to attend local, regional, and national conferences in fisheries and aquatic science. For priority consideration, apply by February 28, but review will continue until the position is filled. Contact Person Michael Booth Contact eMail email@example.com
