Title Post-doctoral position: Developing fish population models to inform adaptive management in the Grand Canyon
Agency, Location U.S. Geological Survey (Flagstaff, AZ)
Categories Student
Job # 13620
Salary Commensurate with experience
Responsibilities

 Fisheries monitoring in the Grand Canyon segment of the Colorado River consists of several long-term and spatially extensive catch-based studies, a few moderately long intensive studies, and a variety of short-term research projects. There is a need to develop integrated fish population models utilizing these data to inform adaptive management decisions. We seek a highly motivated post-doctoral scientist to work as part of a team, leading development of population models that link environmental factors (flow, temperature), biotic interactions (including competition and food limitation), and management actions to fish population dynamics. The successful candidate will have good interpersonal, organizational and communication skills and experience in either population or ecosystem modelling. Term of appointment will be for at least 18 months. Review of applications will begin on November 8 and will continue until a suitable candidate is found.  Interested candidates should send a cover letter, cv, three references, and one representative publication.

Qualifications

PhD in ecology, fisheries ecology or related discipline.
