The associate will supervise technicians in field and lab work. Experience leading a field study in fisheries, preferably with electrofishing, is strongly preferred, as well as interest/experience with eDNA processing, and analysis/simulation modeling of acoustic telemetry data. Interest/experience with engaging agency personnel and stakeholders is also desired. Postdoc might also participate in other QFC activities: preparing for and delivering on-line and short-courses on quantitative fisheries methods, assisting with consulting projects with QFC supporting partners.
PhD in fisheries science or related discipline with field experience and a strong record of research productivity in quantitative methods.
