Postdoctoral Researcher in population dynamics and fishery management
Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University
18 months at 100% FTE
POSITION: The Postdoctoral Researcher will lead the modelling/population dynamics/fishery management research as part of a recently funded NSF project investigating whether coastal oceanographic variability gives rise to local refuges that can be harnessed to increase the resilience to climate change of ecologically and economically important species in the southern California Large Marine Ecosystem, off Baja California, Mexico. The project merges disciplines and will involve fishers, fisheries managers, and members of Mexican fishing cooperatives to integrate knowledge of the drivers and outcomes of local oceanographic variability in fisheries management and conservation aimed at enhancing the resilience of coastal species and small-scale fisheries to climate change. Integration of oceanographic and ecological studies will advance understanding of the effects of oceanographic variability on marine populations and fisheries. This position is tailored towards a Postdoctoral Researcher who is interested in engaging in interdisciplinary research.
