Title 6-month post-doctoral researcher: Cumulative effects modeling (possible extension to 2-years)
Agency, Location Fisheries and Oceans Canada / BC Ministry of Environment / Alberta Environment and Parks / Simon Fraser University
Categories Apply, PhD
Job # 14034
Salary Between $29,721 and $34,413 CAD for 6 months, depending on experience
Responsibilities

The successful candidate will develop open-source cumulative impacts software as a framework for modelling to guide recovery planning of fishes based on taxon-specific stressor-response functions. The intended outcome is a flexible and user-friendly tool for managers to assess long-term consequences of cumulative spatial and temporal stressors and the outcomes of different management interventions. 

Core objectives are i) development of a flexible framework that integrates spatial habitat data with a size-structured population model and stage-specific stressor-response functions, and ii) a matching interface allowing real-time exploration of management scenarios or stressor-response functions.

Qualifications

Candidates should have strong modeling and software development/programming skills, and a solid foundation in population modelling and applied ecology.
