This one year project leading to submission for a Masters by Research (MRes) will focus on work informing the successful management of salmonid fish in the Loch Lomond catchment.
The ambitious programme of work will include 4 elements related to freshwater habitat quality, current and historical juvenile salmonid status, the evidence of bird predation and adult fish quantification.
The work will require the development of a database using GIS, statistical analysis of existing data and field collection of novel habitat and fish data.
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated researcher with a first degree in a relevant field, with some quantitative skills and capable of executing an ambitious programme of research under the guidance of a supervisory team.
Liaison across multiple stakeholders will also be a component of this position.
