Postdoc Position Available in International Fisheries Science and Management

Drs. Austin Humphries and Elin Torell at the University of Rhode Island seek a postdoctoral associate to contribute to studies of the social-ecological drivers and impacts of distant water fleets on national fisheries and fisherfolk.

Background: Industrial distant water fleets (DWFs) have typically been identified in U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) programs as one of many threats to fisheries sustainability that can be mitigated through broader efforts to improve scientific, governance, and enforcement capacities and informed, organized constituencies. More recently, however, some USAID Missions have started to identify illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing by DWFs as a more direct and significant impediment to improving the management of national fisheries and are beginning to consider targeted interventions to counter the many impacts of DWFs on national fishery resources. DWFs sometimes engage in harvesting practices that are legal but unsustainable; the licenses that allow unsustainable activity may be the result of weak data and technical analyses and/or of corrupting influence on issuing officials.DWFs can also degrade fisheries if they extract resources illegally, resulting in habitat destruction or overharvesting. Often enforcement of illegal fishing by DWFs is challenging in developing contexts, either because enforcement institutions are under-equipped or because political influence disrupts the hand of justice. Additionally, there can be conflicts between DWFs and national fishers, which can include physical collisions, perceptions of unfair resource allocations, or extractions that erode domestic support for compliance with management rules.

Position Details: The position entails working with collaborators at the University of British Columbia and others with a focus on characterizing the ecological and socio-economic impacts of DWFs in select geographies. The research will cover a number of geographies missions listed in Annex A of the DWF Research Agenda. The final countries covered will be determined in collaboration with USAID but will include some of the following: a) target countries in U.S. Government’s Global Food Security Strategy: Ghana, Kenya, and Senegal; b) Feed the Future aligned countries Mozambique and Tanzania; c) biodiversity priority countries: Indonesia, Madagascar, the Pacific Islands, and Philippines. The postdoctoral associate will produce/update a set of country level briefs for USAID Missions that includes analysis of the ecological and socio-economic impacts of DWFs. Other products from this research include peer-reviewed manuscripts, white papers, and policy briefs. The postdoctoral research associate will be based at the Coastal Resources Center, Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island and be supervised by Drs. Austin Humphries and Elin Torell. We all have a role to play in cultivating inclusion. Our culture is the result of our behaviors, our personal commitment, our curiosity, how we collaborate, and the ways that we share our perspectives and encourage others to do the same. In turn, this inspires us to try new things, speak openly, and be bold. It brings us together as a research community and empowers all of us to connect, belong, and grow. We are especially interested in candidates that share this vision.

Qualifications: At the time of appointment, the candidate will hold a PhD in fisheries science, marine affairs,or a related field. Candidates should have strong writing and communication skills as well as a track record of delivering research products on time and in a professional manner. A proven capacity to publish in peer-reviewed journals is desired. Also desired is a demonstrated expertise in quantitative data analysis related to fish stock assessment and/or socio-economic impact assessment. Ideal candidates will have experience working with diverse collaborators and across disciplines/geographies.

To Apply: Please follow instructions at questions, email Drs. Austin Humphries humphries@uri.eduand Elin Torell The position is open until filled with first consideration of applicants beginning on October 31, 2021.

Start date is negotiable but is anticipated around January or February 2022. Initial appointment will be for one year,with anticipated funding for two years, conditional upon performance. The University of Rhode Island offers competitive salary ($53,760 to $61,308 for this position) and benefits to its postdoctoral researchers and scholars.

Postdoctoral scholar in fisheries science

Announcement of Postdoctoral Research Opportunity

May 8, 2021

Pacific hake trophic modeling

The University of Washington, in collaboration with the Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC), seeks a postdoctoral scholar in fisheries science. The postdoctoral scholar will collaborate with researchers from the NWFSC’s Fisheries Resource Analysis and Monitoring Division (FRAM) and the Conservation Biology (CB) Divisions, to develop and implement a CEATTLE (Climate-Enhanced, Age-based model with Temperature-specific Trophic Linkages and Energetics) ecosystem model for Pacific hake and krill in the California Current Ecosystem. Investigating the relationships between hake trophic interactions and population dynamics is an important research need for stock assessment and ecosystem-based management, and this postdoctoral project will contribute to a better understanding of the role of Pacific hake in the California Current Ecosystem.

The main responsibility of the postdoctoral scholar will be to quantify the relationship of hake consumption to prey availability, including specific prey items such as small hake and krill, to more accurately assess hake growth, mortality, and recruitment to inform models for stock assessment. This will be accomplished by developing a CEATTLE (Climate-Enhanced, Age-based model with Temperature-specific Trophic Linkages and Energetics) ecosystem model with newly available hake diet data. The postdoctoral scholar will also be responsible for writing one to two scientific papers documenting the hake CEATTLE model and the influence of hake cannibalism on its population dynamics. If time and funds permit, the postdoctoral scholar may increase the model complexity by adding more predator and prey species or/and integrate the results of the CEATTLE model with the models currently used for hake stock assessment and management strategy evaluation.

The anticipated start date is May 25, 2021, but this is negotiable. The initial appointment is for 1 year, with reappointment possible pending performance review and funding availability. Applications should be submitted by May 18, 2021, but the position will remain open until filled.

PhD project at the University of Queensland

The Spatial Epidemiology Laboratory at the University of Queensland, Australia seeks a PhD student to work on an exciting new project: forecasting ecosystem responses to environmental change

There is a growing consensus that using models to anticipate the future is vital to mitigate the impacts of environmental change on ecosystems. Yet most ecological models are one-off attempts to predict what ecosystems might be like in many years or decades. This makes it hard for decision-makers to use these models. It also favours models that are not easily scrutinised and improved. A new international study will use an iterative cycle to 1) forecast how species occurrences and abundances will change over short timescales; 2) use predictions to inspect model failures and 3) improve models so that we can continue to learn. This represents a new way of thinking in ecology that, like weather forecasting, has the power to advance our understanding of ecological processes.

The PhD project

The candidate will work within a vibrant team of quantitative ecologists and spatio-temporal modellers to tackle two major questions in ecological modelling:

(1) When can multivariate models improve forecasts of species distributions, abundances and biodiversity compared to simpler models?
(2) What aspects of models and data control forecast uncertainty across space and time?

Benefits of the project

The student will be based at The University of Queensland within the School of Veterinary Science, supervised by Dr. Nicholas Clark and A/Prof Ricardo Soares Magalhães. The candidate will work with a diverse group of international researchers, including Dr Konstans Wells (Swansea University, UK), Prof Ethan White (University of Florida, USA) and A/Prof Wenbiao Hu (Queensland University of Technology). Additional support will be given by partners at the Ecological Forecasting Initiative and the Spatial Epidemiology Laboratory, including assistance in computer-based data analysis, model building and scientific communication. The selected student will have the opportunity to work with all partners on this project but will be based at UQ.

This project will help develop the candidate’s skills in critical thinking, project management, data management and analysis, writing and communication. Expected applications of the project are incredibly diverse, meaning the student will be well prepared for a future career in research or with government and non-government land management, biosecurity or conservation agencies.

This PhD scholarship is funded by the University of Queensland, providing a tax-free PhD stipend and full tuition fee support. The scholarship is for three years, with two possible six-month extensions. Funds are also available for the student to attend scientific conferences and workshops.

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant’s previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.

-A BSc with First Class Honours or Masters degree in ecology or statistics
-A strong interest in ecological modelling, time series analysis or conservation science
-Excellent time and data management and interpersonal skills
-Evidence of well-developed verbal and written communication skills

Desirable characteristics

-Publication record in international peer-reviewed journals
-Experience with stochastic data simulation and analysis
-Knowledge of script-based statistical languages such as R or Python

How to enquire

For more information and to submit an expression of interest, please contact Dr. Nicholas Clark at The expression of interest should include a cover letter and CV including names and contact details of 3 referees (2 pages max) and an academic transcript.
