Alaska Salmon Program

Graduate Student Opportunities

The Alaska Salmon Program currently has graduate students studying a broad range of basic and applied ecological, social, and economic topics relevant to sockeye salmon and their ecosystems. Research interests include: climate change impacts on freshwater ecosystems; life history and behavior of salmonids; river, stream, and lake ecology; biogeochemical processes; brown bear/salmon interactions; bird/salmon interactions; marine-derived nutrients; economics of salmon and salmon fisheries; and quantitative assessments of salmon populations.

Students interested in graduate research opportunities with the UW Alaska Salmon Program should contact individual faculty.
