I am looking for a M.Sc. student to start in September 2014 at Saint
Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The research project will
involve looking at genes involved in cancer susceptibility
and reproductive success in the St. Lawrence beluga whale population
(/Delphinapterus leucas/).

Applicants should be highly motivated, independent, and have an
excellent academic record. Students already with scholarships will be
prioritized, but having funding is not a requirement.

Our laboratory focuses on using genetic analyses to learn more about the
biology of small populations (usually of whales). More can be learned

at www.frasierlab.ca <http://www.frasierlab.ca>.

Interested applicants should submit a CV and brief letter (< 1 page)
explaining their interest in pursuing a M.Sc. in general, and in this
project in particular, to Tim Frasier (timothy.frasier@smu.ca).

Thanks!
-Tim
