Assistant Project Scientist: Institute of Marine Sciences- UCSC Fisheries Ecology Division

0 Comment

The Institute of Marine Sciences [https://ims.ucsc.edu/] at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), in collaboration with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) invites applications for the position of Assistant Project Scientist, under the direction of Dr. Eric Danner. The Assistant Project Scientist will be collaborating with a multidisciplinary team on the continued development of a set of existing simulation models that allow for the prediction of salmon population responses to habitat restoration and changes in water flow and quality. The models will be used to support adaptive management of state and federal water projects in California’s Central Valley. The incumbent will work primarily on stage structured population models, while collaborating with other researchers on hydrodynamic models, particle-tracking models, predation models, and fish tagging datasets. The responsibilities of the incumbent will include three general areas: (1) perform model development and provide analysis and summary of results, (2) serve as the primary and/or co-author on refereed journal publications, (3) and produce reports and user manuals for the models, as well as other written communications with end-users and stakeholders.

Applicants with expertise in population modeling (mathematical and numerical simulation models) are strongly encouraged to apply.
