Post-Doctoral Scholar in Quantitative Fisheries Oceanography

Mueter/Duffy-Anderson post-doctoral researcher for "The variable
transport of pollock eggs and larvae over the Bering shelf: A marriage
of physics and biology"

The Fisheries Division in the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences
(SFOS) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) invites
applications for a post-doctoral researcher in quantitative fisheries
oceanography to conduct retrospective statistical analyses and model
validation as part of an NSF-funded interdisciplinary synthesis
project entitled "The variable transport of pollock eggs and larvae
over the Bering shelf: A marriage of physics and biology". The project
aims to elucidate how variable atmospheric forcing, and the ocean’s
response to this forcing, affects the distribution of walleye pollock
eggs and larvae on the eastern Bering Sea shelf. The approach is to
use a combination of new modeling results and recent observations to
examine historical dispersal pathways of pollock eggs and larvae and
to forecast how these might change in the future. The successful
candidate will be responsible for (1) comparing biological
observations on the vertical and horizontal distribution of early life
stages of walleye pollock to simulated drift trajectories from a
bio-physical model, and (2) developing indices for quantifying and
comparing inferred drift trajectories among years. This position will
be located in Seattle (Alaska Fisheries Science Center, Sand Point
facility, and will
require travel to and extended stays in Juneau
( The successful candidate will work
closely with senior-level scientists at the AFSC, UAF, and other

Qualified applicants must possess a quantitatively-oriented Ph.D.
(already received, or having completed all requirements and awaiting
graduation) in fisheries, oceanography, or ecology from an accredited
university, and have a strong research and publication record
appropriate to their experience and date of degree. Excellent verbal
and oral communication skills are required. A M.S. degree in
Statistics or previous experience conducting statistical analyses of
spatial and temporal environmental data sets and knowledge of
statistical programming is required (R preferred, other languages
acceptable). Familiarity with the oceanography of the Bering Sea and
with the life history of walleye pollock is desirable.

Salary: $45,000 - $55,000 (commensurate with qualifications) plus
generous retirement and health benefits.
