This position seeks a new research scientist with quantitative fishery biology and modeling skills. The recipient of this post-doctoral position will pursue management-based research interests in the construction of fish population dynamics models. In particular, the selected individual will investigate best practices for assigning or estimating the relationship between river discharge and available fish habitat within river basins, and also the interplay of mainstem and tributary habitat use for juvenile coho salmon.
