|Agency, Location||Cornell University, NY|
Seeking a postdoctoral fellow to address strategies for climate-ready fishing communities as part of a Cornell University – The Nature Conservancy research collaboration. Climate change is advancing rapidly, particularly in high latitude oceans, leading to shifting marine species distributions, and changing fish population productivity and variability. The successful applicant will join a multi-investigator collaboration spanning marine science, fisheries, computer science, and conservation finance to identify optimal strategies for fishing communities to prepare for climate-driven ocean changes.
Preferred qualifications include: 1) Ph.D. in fisheries, ecology, conservation biology, environmental science, economics, statistics or related field. 2) Skill in statistical programming. 3) Experience synthesizing and interpreting diverse data sets.
