contribute to studies on one or more of the following topics (1)
genetic analysis of native species responses to environmental stressors
in eastern North American and Pacific island stream ecosystems; (2)
genetic, field, and otolith-based assays of metapopulation dynamics of
diadromous fishes across the Hawaiian archipelago; (3) the evolutionary
origins of freshwater fish diversity across eastern North America;
and  (4) island biogeography of amphidromous and secondary freshwater
fishes. The incumbent will be encouraged to pursue other research areas
