Graduate Student Opportunities

I am always interested in speaking with and discussing research opportunities with enthusiastic, motivated individuals who have a passion and curiosity for physiology and/or fish biology. Opportunities for M.Sc. or Ph.D. students currently exist in two research areas:

  1. Physiological plasticity and stress physiology in Lake Whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) living in impacted and pristine lakes throughout Saskatchewan.
  2. Catch and release stress physiology in Walleye (Sander vitreous).

Interested students should email the following to Dr. Richard Manzon (

  1. Cover letter outlining their academic and research background and how it has prepared them to pursue research on one of the two projects listed above
  2. Curriculum vitae
  3. Unofficial transcripts
  4. Sample of your scientific writing
  5. Name, email address and phone number of two referees
