> The Prince William Sound Science Center (www.pwssc.org), a non-‐profit research and education institution located on the shores of Prince William Sound in Cordova, Alaska (www.cordovachamber.com and www.cityofcordova.net), is seeking a highly motivated scientist for a fisheries-‐related research position focused on pelagic fish assessment and systems ecology. This individual will join a multi-‐disciplinary and multi-‐institutional team studying and monitoring various aspects of the ecosystem dynamics of Prince William Sound.

> Background: This position requires an enthusiastic fisheries ecologist to conduct basic and applied research in Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska. The research focus of the PWSSC is on understanding the physical and biological mechanisms affecting diversity, productivity and ecosystem function in Prince William Sound, the Copper River watershed, and northern Gulf of Alaska. 
> 
> Prince William Sound (PWS) is located in the northeast corner of the Pacific at 60° N and includes an intricate network of maritime glaciers, rain forests, offshore islands, barrier island, wetlands, and freshwater and marine systems. PWS has 4900 km of shoreline and is surrounded by the Chugach Mountains that reach 4,300 m and contain the most extensive system of tidewater glaciers in North America. Most of the land area is in or adjacent to the Chugach National Forest. Of the five PWS communities, only Valdez and Whittier have highway access to the main road system. Access to Cordova is by boat or plane. The community is regularly served by Alaska Marine Highway System ferries and an airport that receives daily commercial airline traffic. Commercial salmon fisheries are the cornerstone of the local Cordova economy.  Herring, Pacific cod, sablefish, halibut, shrimp,

> Qualifications: PhD in ecology, fisheries science, marine biology, aquatic sciences, biostatistics, environmental science or related field. Strong quantitative and analytical skills (statistics or modeling excellence preferred). Able to design and conduct research projects as an individual and as part of a team. Insight and ability to apply diverse and appropriate field, laboratory, and analytical approaches to hypothesis-‐driven ecological research. Familiarity with stable isotope analysis. Existing peer-‐reviewed publication record. Supervisory experience. Willing and able to perform fieldwork in remote locations, including at sea, during harsh weather conditions. Demonstrated ability to engage and communicate scientific information to stakeholders of various backgrounds in various settings.

> Overseeing all aspects of research, implementing research projects designed to address management objectives and uncertainties as related to commercially relevant fisheries populations in the region. Supervision of both permanent and temporary staff is required (field crew members, technicians, and the like). This position is funded through two ongoing research programs which the successful candidate is required to participate in: a multi-‐year, multi-‐investigator herring research and monitoring program; and a multi-‐year, multi-‐investigator salmon research program. Copies of the proposals funding this position are available upon request.

> This position’s herring research is related to juvenile herring energetics and ecology conducted in support of a large, multi-‐institution survey effort focused on herring populations in PWS. Knowledge of Pacific herring or other forage fish populations is desirable. The position is responsible for working with other team members to collect and process fish from both scientific and community-‐based fishing efforts. This project is

> This position’s salmon research is focused on collection of data to support an Alaska Department of Fish and Game study on the interactions between hatchery-‐reared and wild salmon populations. As a lead principal investigator (PI) on this program, you will communicate regularly with other PIs and a project manager, and you will ensure all field technician and logistics requirements are met to successfully carry out an ongoing multi-‐ year contract. Approximately six to ten field technicians overseen by this position extensively sample over 30 streams around PWS for both genetic and otolith samples between the months of March and October. Mapping of streams, collection, organization, and transmission of data are all regular components of this project. For more information:

> Peer-‐reviewed publication of results on any projects conducted on behalf of PWSSC is an expectation. Funding through fiscal year 2015 is relatively secure for this position. The successful candidate will compete to secure additional funds to initiate new research or continue ongoing research after that time. All research and outreach is in service to PWSSC’s mission. The starting date of the position is flexible; preference is for the successful candidate to begin as soon as possible.
