The UNDerwater Lab at the University of North Dakota is seeking an M.Sc. graduate student to explore how climate change will impact recreational anglers in the Prairie Pothole Region.  Project goals include 1) assessing how changing water levels will impact boat ramps and angler access, 2) predicting how anglers will use lakes given predicted changes in fish communities and dynamic water levels, and 3) evaluating how angler expenditures could vary according to changes in water levels, angler access, and fish communities.  The successful candidate will be expected to work as part of a larger cross-disciplinary team and communicate their work to multiple stakeholders.  This project is especially suited for someone interested in translational ecology and actionable science.  The successful candidate will be primarily supported on a Graduate Research Assistantship (plus tuition waiver) and will also contribute to the teaching mission of the Department of Biology (...
