The Employment Service was established in 1985 by the World Aquaculture Society to assist its membership and the international aquaculture community with current job and career information. The annual posting of jobs and resumes at WAS international and US Aquaculture Society (USAS) meetings, and the online job and resume databases via the Internet serve as a clearinghouse for employment opportunities and information. The job and resume databases are maintained throughout the year by the Employment Service Coordinator. All submitted job listings and resumes are usually posted within 1-3 days and resumes will be removed after 6 months.
Please contact the Employment Service Coordinator with all your comments, questions and suggestions.

Department of Animal Biosciences at the University of Guelph
The Department of Animal Biosciences at the University of Guelph invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.
Aquatic animal and plant production by the aquaculture sector has now exceeded the volume and economic value of the global, wild harvest seafood industry. The University of Guelph has a rich history and a longstanding reputation for its many contributions to the aquaculture field, most notably in the areas of fish physiology, production technologies, reproduction, nutrition, health and disease management, genetics, new species development, animal welfare, and policy and regulatory science.
The University of Guelph also operates a world class research centre and quarantine facility in the Alma Aquaculture Research Station, and has additional on-campus research facilities. Importantly, we also have a long-standing institutional obligation to the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to support the provincial and national aquatic farming sectors through research, education and outreach. Aquaculture development in Ontario is currently a key area of emphasis for the province and university, as it represents a significant growth opportunity for both rural and indigenous communities in the province. Accordingly, the successful candidate is expected to play a continuing role in helping the province realize the potential for growth in this sector.
