The successful candidate will develop a habitat-based population model for ESA-listed coho salmon in California coastal streams. Specific responsibilities will include formulating a flexible stage-structured model framework, extracting parameter estimates and functional habitat relationships from existing data, and contributing to field data collection to fill information gaps. The model will provide a platform for integrating information from ongoing population monitoring efforts and a transparent process for generating hypotheses about critical limiting factors for coho salmon populations in the study area.
Applicants should have a BS in fisheries, ecology, or a related field with competitive GPA and GRE scores. Prefer candidates with advanced coursework in population biology and statistics.
