1. The USGS Wisconsin Cooperative Fishery Research Unit at UW-Stevens Point is looking for a MS student to conduct research on walleye populations in northern Wisconsin as part of a collaborative effort between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and UW-Stevens Point. This project will utilize genetics to construct pedigrees for two northern Wisconsin lakes with the goal of correlating various ecological metrics to individual fitness (i.e. reproductive success). Position will start in September 2019, but there may be an opportunity to work in the Larson Lab during summer 2019 before the position starts. For further information or to send your application materials (CV, transcript copies, GRE scores, and names and contact information for three references), please contact Wes Larson (
