Integrated Statistics is looking for an economist to work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Social Sciences Branch of the Northeast Fisheries Science Center.

The economist provides analysis and support to the program review for the New England Groundfish Catch Share Fishery. Duties include:
Master’s Degree or PhD in Economics, or
equivalent work experience in economics or a closely related field.
The position is full-time with an initial period of performance of one year. The rate of pay is $24-26/hr, and the position is eligible for the benefits described on the Integrated Statistics website.
