If you would like to be a part of an ecosystem-based management team that fully supports 21st century stewardship of our oceans and coasts, then apply to this Post Doctoral Fellow position with the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, Department of Fisheries.
Opportunity: NOAA Fisheries Alaska Fisheries Science Center Integrated Ecosystem Assessment Program Post Doc
Contracting Agency: Cooperative Institute for Alaska Research (CIFAR)
Location: NOAA Fisheries Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute, Juneau, AK
Advisors: Kerim Aydin, Jamal Moss, Gordon Kruse
Position Description:
NOAA Fisheries has identified a need for ecosystem-based management to fully support 21st century stewardship of our oceans and coasts. Integrated Ecosystem Assessments (IEAs) are a next generation tool designed to incorporate ecological processes in decision making and transfer scientific knowledge to managers and stakeholders. When fully implemented, IEAs have the power to quantify ecosystem services and feed into Management Strategy Evaluations (MSEs). This project will involve collaboration with fisheries oceanographers, stock assessment scientists, ecosystem modelers, natural resource economists, commercial fishermen's organizations, tribal entities, and non-profit research organizations. The candidate will oversee the project in coordination with the advisors. Primary duties will involve 1) developing a conceptual model, or series of models that emulate the major ecological functions of the GOA; 2) an overarching Gulf of Alaska-wide plan for the Alaska IEA Program; and 3) the drafting of a proposal for a regional IEA specific to Southeast Alaska. Additional analyses will focus on determining which data are the most useful for ecosystem indicators. This project will require strong interpersonal, analytical, and communications skills. Qualified applicants should have a background in population dynamics, stock assessment, applied mathematics, or theoretical ecology. Familiarity with databases and strong programming skills (R, AD Model Builder, Template Model Builder, e.g.) are highly desired.
Duties:
Develops conceptual model(s) of the Gulf of Alaska by combining new information from the recently completed Gulf of Alaska Project (NPRB) with that existing in the literature;
Develops (in collaboration with Alaska IEA team members) an overarching plan for the IEA Program in the Gulf of Alaska;
Develops (in collaboration with Alaska IEA team members) a proposal for a regional IEA for coastal Southeast Alaska;
Contributes to innovative statistical and mathematical models to better assess and incorporate environmental drivers and/or ecosystem indicators in the ecosystem assessments, fisheries stock assessments, and management strategy evaluations; 
Provides technical and scientific manuscripts for publication and participates in the development of scientific manuscripts for publication with Alaska IEA team members; 
Carries out projects as a full member of a research team and as an independent researcher.
Basic Requirements:
Have a PhD in or advanced degree in fisheries, biological oceanography, quantitative ecology, biology, zoology, or biological oceanography, mathematics, or statistics. Appropriate experience or additional education, including evidence of statistical work such as: field sampling, computing, and analyzing statistical data, and applying known statistical techniques to data such as measurement of central tendency, dispersion, skewness, sampling error, simple and multiple correlation, analysis of variance, and tests of significance.
Salary to commensurate with experience.
Please submit with application a cover letter describing your interest and experience relevant to the position, CV with contact information for three professional references, letter of recommendation from adviser and pdfs of publications.
Please submit applications by 11:55 pm AK Standard Time on 8/1/2017 to be considered. Application materials must include a cover letter, CV and at least three professional references.
If you need further information or assistance with applying to this position please contact the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences Human Resources Coordinator at 474-6808.
