Diadromous Fish Analyst Needed

Apply Here

Integrated Statistics is looking for a Diadromous Fisheries Analyst to support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC).

The Diadromous Fisheries Analyst will examine the structure and function of diadromous fish in Northeast Shelf watersheds, estuaries, and marine ecosystems, synthesizing what is known about the ecosystem processes that drive diadromous species abundance and productivity in freshwater environments. The Analyst will explore the connections that diadromous fish have with the marine environment, to identify which ecosystem processes are impaired, and to suggest scientific actions and implications for integrated management.  An expected outcome is a conceptual model that fosters a better understanding of ecosystem connections while identifying and addressing the practical needs of managers to support Ecosystem Based Management. This work will involve  collaboration with NMFS researchers, managers, and habitat specialists, and a strong desire to work with resource managers at tribal, state, and federal levels is needed.  Research results are to be published in the peer-reviewed literature. The Analyst will develop and submit a manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed journal that (1) synthesizes the literature on ecosystem processes that connect freshwater and marine ecosystems of the Northeast United States and (2) identifies science and management needs that will benefit the management and recovery of diadromous fish and other NOAA trust resources. The Analyst will identify a network of scientists, managers, other parties at government and non-government organizations, and academic and research institutions. Information gained from this network will offer partners interested in diadromous species and watershed management resources to better understand the connections between freshwater, estuarine, and marine ecosystems of the Northeast United States and to identify the needs of managers to support Ecosystem Based Management for NOAA trust resources.  

Duties

The Diadromous Fisheries Analyst will work closely with an oversight group consisting of NOAA Fisheries Service staff representing the NEFSC, Restoration Center, and GARFO Protected Resources Division at a minimum. The oversight group will help guide the work to ensure it adequately addresses science and management needs.  The Analyst will also work closely with other collaborators. The tasks include:
Qualifications and Skills
The position will begin with an extended period of remote work to accommodate pandemic restrictions. No earlier than July 2021, the position would be based out of Woods Hole MA, Gloucester MA, or Orono ME.  During the remote work, the Analyst will need high speed internet for electronic access to resources and communication with colleagues.
