The Moorea Coral Reef LTER site has an open position for a Junior 
Specialist in marine ecology.  The position will involve field work at 
the Moorea Coral Reef LTER site on the island of Moorea, French 
Polynesia.  More details about the qualifications desired and 
instructions for how to apply for the position follow.


The Marine Science Institute at the University of California, Santa 
Barbara, seeks a Junior Specialist to assist in experimental field 
marine ecology within a Marine Ecology Laboratory. The Junior Specialist 
will assist in laboratory work and field work for the Moorea Coral Reef 
LTER in addition to designing and running their own ecological 
experiments as part of our research program. This work will include a 
significant amount of coral reef ecology fieldwork in Moorea, French 
Polynesia. Research will include SCUBA diving via small boats to gather 
data on fish and coral communities and to set up ecological experiments. 
This position will entail significant detailed analyses of videos on 
fish foraging and photographs of coral communities to quantify organism 
(e.g., coral, algae, etc.) identity and abundance, which requires 
specialized knowledge and expertise in fish behavior, the taxonomy of 
fishes, corals, and algae, and specific computer programs for video and 
photo analyses. The Junior Specialist will also be responsible for 
physical oceanography data collection using a variety of instruments. 
The Junior Specialist will be expected to participate in field 
expeditions without the Principal Investigator, which will entail them 
using their intellectual creativity to set up their own experiments to 
expand our ongoing work in Moorea.

Minimum qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in biology, marine biology, 
ecology, or equivalent experience. SCUBA and AAUS certification with 
100’ depth certification. Experience handling small vessels in 
near-shore systems. Experience with physical oceanography 
instrumentation. Familiarity with basic data management and analyses 
including the use of computer software packages such as PGAdmin, Excel 
and SeaTerm.

Desirable qualifications include: French language skills, experience in 
field marine ecology, Indo-Pacific coral reef biology and taxonomy, and 
oceanographic processes. The ideal candidate will present the 
intellectual ability and interest to design and conduct their own 
experiments in coral reef ecology.

Additional requirements: Qualified applicants must possess or be able to 
obtain a California driver’s license. Qualified applicants must possess 
or be able to obtain the necessary documentation, e.g., US Passport, 
required to allow travel to French Polynesia and be able to travel and 
reside outside of the United States for extended periods of time.

Salary will depend on academic background and experience. 100% time 
appointment for one year from start date with possibility of annual renewal.

To apply, visit, and follow 
instructions. A cover letter, current CV and contact information for 3 
references will be required.

For full consideration, please apply by August 08, 2016. We are seeking 
an applicant that can begin the position in fall 2016.

The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute 
to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through 
research, teaching and service.
