AIS 475F: ZOMBIES AND INDIANS
Instructor: Chad Uran
TuTh 1:30 – 3:20
While zombies have existed at some level of reality for centuries, it was not until the 20th Century that zombies overran the global popular imagination. Because of their origins at the many points of collision between colonizer and colonized, zombies have always walked the uncertain spaces between binary “certainties” such as us and them, rich and poor, slave and master, and, of course, alive and dead.
I am looking for a Ph.D. student for a project that will focus on evaluating growth, survival, and recruitment of Chinook salmon in
southeast Alaska rivers. Specific project objectives include (1) conducting a retrospective analysis using archived scale samples of the
effects and relationships of freshwater and marine growth on survival to the age of reproduction for female Chinook salmon, (2) evaluating
past and current influences of biological and environmental factors on Chinook salmon smolt migration run timing, and (3) assessing
relationships between Chinook salmon smolt biological attributes, smolt migration run timing characteristics, and environmental factors on
female survival to reproductive maturity.
