- The Bullard Lab and The AU Fish Disease Diagnostics Lab are seeking graduate student applicants for the MSc or PhD degree to study fish parasites (taxonomy, phylogenetics, life cycles), disease diagnostics (conventional and new methods), and aquatic invasive pathogens in freshwater, estuarine, and marine habitats throughout the Southeastern United States and abroad. Expedition-based activities abroad (biodiversity surveys) are ongoing and may be a component of the applicant’s degree program. Our labs are located in the flagship research building (Center for Advanced Science, Innovation, and Commerce; CASIC) on Auburn University’s main campus (Auburn, Alabama). We are presently investigating (1) taxonomy, systematics, and life cycles of metazoan parasites infecting vertebrates (fishes, birds, turtles, et al.) and invertebrates (freshwater mussels, snails, crustaceans et al.); (2) biodiversity and host/geographic distributions of disease-causing microbes and viruses of freshwater and marine fishes, mollusks, and crustaceans; (3) development of improved diagnostics methods for detecting aquatic nuisance species and aquatic invasive species; (4) management of diseases in fish hatcheries, extensive culture systems (earthen ponds), and wild fish populations; and (5) anthropogenic effects of offshore oil infrastructure on the health and behavior of highly migratory fishes. The Bullard Lab has outstanding facilities and abundant capacity for lab- and field-based research activities. We have abundant analytical space for necropsy, virology, microbiology, and parasitology, a histopathology suite, abundant microscopy resources (e.g., each student has their own office space and bench with compound microscope and dissecting microscope), a large wet lab, trucks, boats, and an extensive assortment of traps, seines, tackle, gill nets, and trawls for collection of fishes and invertebrates. Our staff and students work routinely with state fisheries biologists throughout the Southeastern United States as well as with federal agency biologists. We travel in-state and out-of-state to cooperate with our state/federal partners and aquaculture producers, to survey wild fish and invertebrate populations, and to pursue specific vertebrate and invertebrate hosts for parasite taxonomy and phylogenetics studies. Our international work of late has included work in the Amazon River, Mekong River, and southern Africa. GRA Positions: We seek graduate student applicants for the MSc or PhD. Students will receive a stipend (~$18,000/year for MS, ~$20,000/year for PhD) and tuition waiver. To apply: Send a letter of interest, current CV (including GPA and GRE scores, if available), names of two (2) references, and unofficial transcripts to:
