PML advertising for bio-economic modeller

Apologies for cross-posting but I would be grateful if you can consider
if you know anyone for the following open-ended post in my group and
circulate the advert please

PML has an open-ended position for a Bio-economic modeller to support
their Sea and Society group and its currently funded projects, and to
lead future development of aspects of economic modelling. They should
have skills and experience in at least one of the following areas:

•bio-economic modelling of fisheries and aquaculture

•economic modelling of ecosystem services and benefits

•bio-economic decision support tool development using probabilistic
graphical modelling/machine learning

IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON ANCHOVY AND SARDINE POPULATIONS OF THE

NORTH-EAST ATLANTIC: A DEB-IBM MODELLING APPROACH.

The objective is the evaluation of the impact of climate change at the

horizon 2100 on the populations of anchovy and sardine in the Bay of

Biscay. This study will rely on mechanistic modelling at population

scale based on an Individual-Based Modelling (IBM) approach and on the

Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) theory. Growth and reproduction will be

represented at the individual level throughout the life cycle, and

included in a population model to analyze the recruitment process, which

is key in the dynamics of these populations. This study is part of the

European H2020 CERES project. The environmental forcing will be

extracted from the coupled model POLCOMS-ERSEM from the project partner

Plymouth Marine Laboratory and will cover the period 1960-2099 under

different climate change IPCC scenarios. A first step will focus on

model calibration, especially the natural mortality parameters, on a

hindcast period impacted by fishery, as well as on validation using

abundance information. A second step will concern the analysis of the

specific response to climate change in the Bay of Biscay. Finally it is

suggested to consider other European regions of the current area of

distribution and investigate the regional trend of expansion or

retraction for the populations of both species.
