Ph.D. Graduate Research Assistantship in Stream Fish Ecology

University of Alaska Fairbanks – Alaska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit

The Northwest Boreal Landscape Conservation Cooperative is pleased to announce the Alaska-Canada Boreal Science and Management Research Tool.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) was awarded a new 5-year cooperative agreement to host the Alaska Climate Science Center (CSC) through 2022. UAF has served as the host institution for the Alaska CSC since its inception in 2010, with the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) as a consortium partner. In this new agreement, the University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) has joined the Alaska CSC as a consortium partner to increase the capacity of climate science research in Alaska.

AK CSC's Alumna Fellow Yekaterina (Katia) Kontar has recently accepted a postdoctoral postion at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. Katia's research has focused on mitigating and adjusting to the risks that natural disasters pose to Arctic and Subarctic communities.

Program manager of the Climate and Cryosphere Hazards Program (CCHP) at the Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) Gabriel Wolken has been appointed as an Alaska Climate Science Center (AK CSC) assistant research professor.

Wolken’s joint appointment marks the beginning of a partnership between CCHP and AK CSC that will further advance shared objectives through co-production on key issues that are high priority for Alaska.
