Two MS Assistantships - Fish Ecology - Tennessee Tech University
Two MS assistantships are available in January 2019 to study stream fish ecology at Tennessee Tech University. One position will be focused on the ecological effects of freshwater fish migrations, using buffalo (Ictiobus spp.) spawning migrations in the Citico Creek system of eastern Tennessee as a model system. Anticipated project objectives include quantification of nutrients contributed to Citico Creek via buffalo excretion, eggs, and carcasses, and comparison of these nutrient inputs with background nutrient levels.
