About the Department

The Department of FWES is a small, collaborative department of seven full-time faculty, one Fish Hatchery Manager, and three support staff who are committed to high quality, applied, undergraduate education. Department members share the teaching philosophy that students learn best by doing; therefore, laboratories are "hands-on". FWES currently enrolls approximately 290 undergraduates in the following five majors: (1) Bachelor of Technology (BT) in Fisheries and Aquaculture, (2) BT in Wildlife Management (3) BT in Environmental Management (4) Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Fisheries and Wildlife Technology, and (5) AAS in Environmental Studies.

FWES moved into a new Agriculture and Natural Resources Center in 2014. State of the art facilities include: standalone laboratories in aquatic science, mammalogy, ornithology, herpetology, and a taxidermy studio. Campus aquaculture facilities include: 50,000-gallon cold water fish hatchery, warm-water fish hatchery, shellfish hatchery, 10 ponds (4 of which are covered by hi-tunnel greenhouses), an aquaponics facility, an ornamental hatchery, endangered species hatchery, and environmentally controlled culture rooms.

FWES maintains all fisheries gear typically possessed by a fish & game agency, including 3 electrofishing boats (one new), four backpack shockers, an electric trawl, numerous boats, motors, trailers, nets, biotelemetry equipment, hydroacoustics gear, and an impressive preserved collection of North American fishes. A fleet of campus vans is available to transport students to field sites.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) operates 12 fish hatcheries in New York producing approximately 1 million pounds of fish on an annual basis for stocking into 1,200 waterbodies each year. Species cultured include a variety of cold and cool water gamefish as well as species of conservation need such as round whitefish and lake sturgeon.

The DEC hatchery system as it currently stands requires improvements in regard to energy efficiency and technology that can save money, energy, water, produce a higher quality product, and minimize the impact on the environment. Technological fish culture enhancements are needed to conserve water and improve the rearing environment for fish to minimize the need for therapeutic treatment.

Job Description

The Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Environmental Science (FWES) at SUNY Cobleskill invites applications for a 12-month, grant funded (5 years) position as Visiting Assistant Professor of Fisheries & Aquaculture to start in Spring (January) 2019.
