Andy Jasonowicz M.Sc.



The Research Biologist (Genetics) position is a position within the Biological and Ecosystem Sciences Branch that also works closely with the Quantitative Sciences Branch. This position is intended to conduct studies aimed at improving our understanding of population dynamics using genomics approaches. The incumbent reports directly to the BESB Manager.

  • Research Scientist (2015-2019), University of Washington (Seattle, WA)
  • Research Scientist (2015), University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (Milwaukee, WI)
  • State Worker (2010), Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Marquette Fisheries Research Station (Marquette, MI)
  • Biological Science Technician (2009), Illinois Natural History Survey, Lake Michigan Biological Station (Zion, IL)

Prior to joining the IPHC, I worked as a research scientist at the University of Washington and prior to that, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  Through these positions, I have been fortunate to be involved in a variety of fisheries research on sablefish in the Pacific Ocean and lake trout in the Great Lakes, including studies on population genetics and genomics, reproductive life history, and behavior and movement using popup satellite archival tags.
