Jane Rogosch joins Texas Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit-Lubbock
By: Norman Martin
Jane Rogosch, an expert in community ecology and invasion biology in freshwater systems, has been named an Assistant Unit Leader with the U.S. Geological Survey, Texas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in Lubbock, according to officials within Texas Tech University's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. She officially stepped into her new teaching and research post on Dec. 6.
The New Mexico native indicated that her research program broadly focuses on the ecology and conservation of freshwater fishes with emphasis on the influence of altered flow conditions, invasive species, and other aspects of environmental change. One of her primary goals at Tech are to advance the science and practice of conserving and managing aquatic ecosystems and to prepare future natural resource professionals through research, mentorship, and graduate education.
The Texas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit was established at Texas Tech in 1988. The research group is part of the National Cooperative Research Units Program that resides within the U.S. Geological Survey. Its mission centers on conducting and facilitating research and education activities related to natural resource management and conservation. Cooperators include Texas Tech, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, U.S. Geological Survey, the Wildlife Management Institute, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Prior to joining the Lubbock-based USGS unit, Rogosch served as post-doctoral fellow at the Missouri Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, based in the University of Missouri's School of Natural Resources. She also worked as a graduate research and teaching assistant at the University of Washington's School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences.
In addition, Rogosch was a graduate research and teaching assistant at Kansas State University's Division of Biology. Prior to that she worked as a fisheries/aquatic biologist with Marsh & Associates in Tempe, Arizona.
Her bachelor's degree in biology with a minor in statistics is from the University of New Mexico, and her master's degree in biology is from Kansas State University. Her doctorate in aquatic and fishery sciences is from the University of Washington. She is a member of the American Fisheries Society, Society for Freshwater Science, and the Desert Fishes Council.
