Opportunities for Student Studies or Postdoctoral Experience

Through the ACSI-II project there are a variety of opportunities to gain experience and expertise with Cypriniformes fishes and their diversity through student studies or post-doctoral experiences. All three of the above listed project directors are seeking undergraduate and graduate students for participants in this study. Only a few research assistantships are available in the USA in their laboratories that provide funding for tuition, salary, and some benefits. However, all three directors are active participants on graduate student committees at different universities in different countries around the world.

If you are interested in pursuing an education in systematics, taxonomy, and biodiversity of fishes, especially Cypriniformes species, please contact one or more of the directors above.
