Master project available

We are looking for a motivated student who is interested in carrying out a master project on parasites of European bullhead (Cottus gobio) and brown trout (Salmo trutta). The aim of the project is to characterise parasite communities and unravel the genetic make-up of selected parasite species infecting European bullhead and brown trout. You will compare parasite diversity, infection levels and genetic structure of parasite populations infecting pairs of stream and lake fish populations. The study will be conducted in collaboration with researchers from the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle de Genève and the EAWAG research centre in Kastanienbaum.

If you are interested send an email with a short letter of interest and a brief CV to
