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

This position will support the Protected Species Branch (PSB) of NOAA NMFS NEFSC. PSB’s mission includes assessing the population status of protected species (cetaceans, sea turtles, seabirds, and seals) within U.S. waters, and evaluating threats to species and populations due to anthropogenic activities. Detailed assessments of species distributions and abundances are essential to understand broad scale spatial and temporal movements and behaviors. For risk assessment and mitigation of impacts, information on seasonal and inter-annual variability in distribution, ecology, and behavior at smaller spatial scales is used to estimate potential impacts on protected species due to localized activities (e.g., fishery bycatch, military exercises, energy exploration, shipping traffic, etc.).

The Quantitative Modeler will work on a project modeling spatial analysis of whales and other marine species, relative to fishing gear and aquaculture. The modeler will build on an existing software product to expand its capabilities and support its use by stakeholders.
