Job vacancy at the Johann Heinrich von Thünen-Institute 

At the Institute of Sea Fisheries, one of 14 institutes of the Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute, Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries, the position of a 
Research Scientist (m/f) 
with an academic education in Marine Biology / Fisheries Biology / Statistics is to be filled within the EU-funded national Fisheries Data Collection Programme (DCF). 

The working place is Hamburg-Altona for the first few months and will be relocated to the Institute's new facilities in Bremerhaven, scheduled for May 2018. Candidates are expected to relocate accordingly. 

The overarching goal of this position is to optimise the scientific data collection of the Institute of Sea Fisheries in order to fulfil new requirements of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management, without risking the consistency of valuable existing time series. The position's focus is two-fold: The institute's research surveys at sea are to be optimised, and on the other hand, onboard sampling of commercial fishing vessels should be optimised and improved in efficiency. For commercial sampling, the statistical utilisation of the collected data and the data quality overall is to be improved, within the frame of the available funding. 

Therefore, we are seeking for a Marine/Fisheries Biologist with very good mathematical/statistical skills, or a statistician with distinctive subject knowledge in Fisheries Biology. Moreover, very good communication skills are required, in order to transfer and implement the results within our team and in the frame of international/regional co-ordination of monitoring programmes.

Detailed tasks 
 Development of statistically optimised sampling strategies and monitoring programmes, adaption to new requirements as well as existing infrastructure of the institute 
 Collaboration within international/regional co-ordination of monitoring programmes 
 Statistical analysis of multidimensional biological long-term data series of the institute 
 Processing of data to address data calls of data users 
 Development of methods and indicators for evaluation systems 
 Collaboration in the development of data quality standards 
 Participation in national and international expert groups, co-ordination meetings and projects related with the topics of the working tasks 

 University degree (Univ.-Dipl. or MSc) in Marine/Fisheries Biology or Mathematics/Statistics, and PhD 
 Proven extensive experience in statistical analysis of complex biological problems, e.g. using uni- or multivariate statistical methods 
 Very good knowledge in Fisheries Biology 
 Good insight into the functioning of marine ecosystems 
 Database handling skills 
 Very good skills in R and/or SAS, eventually other programming skills 
 High motivation for independent work; reliability and capacity for teamwork 
 Strong communication skills in German and English
