Interactive effects of non-native fish and environmental conditions on galaxiid demography

We have an opening for a student to undertake doctoral research investigating controls on the demography of non-migratory galaxiid fishes. The PhD position is part of the ‘predicting future freshwater fish outcomes theme of Fish Futures, a research programme driving change towards holistic and just freshwater fish management in Aotearoa. The student will be based at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury (UC), working primarily with Prof Angus McIntosh, assisted by Dr Jonathan Tonkin and Dr Robin Holmes, but will benefit from being part of the wider multi-disciplinary Fish Futures collaborative team and partners and UC’s Freshwater Ecology Research Group (FERG).
