Dear list,

the following postdoctoral position is open for application at Ifremer:

"Development of mathematical tools to assess the abundance of
data-limited species of elasmobranch."

A sustainable management of fisheries requires reliable assessment on
biomass and fishing pressure towards the different fish stocks. In
Europe, all elasmobranchs stock assessed by ICES are data deficient
which limits assessments to monitoring trends in a context where in
2012, it was recommended for 25 of these stocks to reduce catches or
targeted fishing. This project aims at improving those stock

The current position involves some data mining carried out on French
datasets (landings, VMS, effort, measurements from observers at sea on
commercial vessels, scientific surveys). These datasets have been
routinely collected by IFREMER and its institutional partners (APECS,
MNHN, fishing industry) but their use for stock assessment has not
been extensively explored so far.

Most of the work will focus on adapting and/or developing models
and/or statistical tools that will make the best use of those datasets
to assess the status of those stocks. Uncertainties related to data
abundance and quality will have to be taken into account. In a later
stage of the work, these tools will integrate additional datasets from
countries which fleets are operating in the same areas in order to
test their robustness and to validate them in the perspective of a
regular use within related fish stock assessment working groups (ICES,

Required skills.
- PhD in fishery science, population dynamics or related fields.
- Strong knowledge in statistics and modeling.
- Strong skills in R programming
- Skills in fish stock assessment desirable but not mandatory

The full-time position will be based at the IFREMER Fishery Science
and Technology laboratory in Lorient. Funding is available for 1 year
with a possibility of non-renewable additional 6 monthes depending
upon performance and funding.

- Salary around 32 000 euros/yr (gross).
- The appointment comes with social benefits such as health care and
retirement plans.
