Internship: Aquaculture Breeding & Genetics

Job description

This is an internship for students in a Master degree program to gain work experience and to conduct research in a company. You will be working at the R&D department of the business unit Aquaculture which is established in Boxmeer, the Netherlands and in Seattle, USA.

What are your main tasks and responsibilities?

The main task of the student will be to evaluate and estimate genetic parameters and genotype by environment interactions associated with different production environments in rainbow trout. Our trout strains are selected under specific broodstock and production environments. However, grow out environments at customer sites may differ widely. Selecting strains under extremely different environments compared to actual production environments may cause a negative effect on production capacity. Determining the optimal breeding program structure, taking into account optimal performance in the right production environment is therefore essential. The student will be exposed to breeding program procedures including routine data collections and asked to genetically analyse available production and slaughter data for commercial trout production stocks raised under different production environments. The student will spend time in Seattle and Boxmeer: details to be decided. 

Develop skills/knowledge

• Data handling and analysis

• Quantitative genetics

• Aquaculture

• Teamwork
