Integrated Statistics is looking for an Instructor to work with the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) NEFSC (Northeast Fisheries Science Center) Fisheries Sampling Branch.

The Fisheries Sampling Branch (otherwise known as the Northeast Fisheries Observer Program or NEFOP) provides observer coverage of several Northeast and Mid-Atlantic federal and state fisheries. The NEFOP trains and monitors the performance of fisheries observers while sampling onboard commercial fishing vessels from Maine to North Carolina, USA. Deployment of observers is conducted by an observer service provider. The data that is collected by observers is tracked, edited, audited and uploaded to a master database by NEFOP staff. Data are provided to a variety of end-users and stakeholders for use in fisheries management decision making. The fisheries coverage is split between the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic areas.

Observer training sessions are held on a semi-regular basis, as both in-house and road show sessions, to maintain an active observer workforce. Training sessions teach specific NEFOP Observer Program and At-Sea Monitor data collection protocols and also certify observers/monitors for deployment. Training sessions are an essential component of the overall Observer and Monitor Programs.

The Instructor responsibilities include:
