More from N America. 
Gulf of Maine Research Institute 
Postdoctoral Research Associate 
The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) has emerged as a catalyst for 
solutions to complex challenges at the nexus of Maine’s marine ecosystem 
and our economy. GMRI is widely respected as one of the top marine research 
institutions in the Northeast. Our fusion of science, education, and 
community gives us range to effect change from multiple directions. Our 
objectivity and commitment to collaboration make us the go-to organization 
for communities grappling with contentious political issues and new 
business systems. We are making a long-term investment in science literacy 
as the cornerstone of a 21st century economy by providing programs to 
ignite the curiosity, ambition, innovation, and problem-solving potential 
of Maine’s next generation. 
GMRI is seeking applicants for a 2.5 year postdoctoral position modeling 
the spatial-temporal distribution of marine species. 
The candidate will be a part of a team of ecologists, ecosystem modelers, 
and data scientists focused on ecological forecasting with the goal of 
providing near-real time information to fisheries stakeholders to support 
decision-making in the context of climate change.  The candidate will 
develop models that capture spatial-temporal changes in animal 
distributions based on observations of marine species collected outside of 
standardized scientific surveys and satellite-based observations of the 
environment obtained from NASA’s Earth Observing System data collection. 
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in ecology, fisheries science, oceanography, 
or other related field.  The position requires strong mathematical, 
statistical, and computational skills and ideally, some experience working 
with satellite or other large geophysical data sets and the MaxEnt modeling 
framework.  A candidate with experience working in the R programming 
environment is strongly desired. 
*To Apply:* 
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, CV, and names of three 
references. In the letter, please characterize your research interests and 
how this position aligns with them.  Please visit 
for application instructions.  Questions should be referred to
