Under the Fisheries Act 1995, the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) is responsible for the stewardship, protection and conservation of Victoria’s fisheries resources and for ensuring that the management and use of these resources is effected in an objective, efficient and ecologically sustainable manner.
The VFA is seeking a suitably qualified supplier(s) to undertake scientific assessments of the blacklip and greenlip abalone commercial fisheries, which are important economic contributors to the Victorian community, with the commercial sector exporting approximately $20 million worth of product annually, and supporting a regional work force throughout the State.
An invitation to tender was released on the Tenders Victoria website on 1 September 2018, closing 30 November 2018. Please see attached link for your information:
Postgraduate Course “Consumer – Resource Interactions in Times of Global Environmental Change”
2 – 6 December 2018
De Bergse Bossen, Driebergen, The Netherlands
This one-week course will illustrate how adopting a consumer-resource approach can change our understanding of interactions, and how adaptive processes can be important in understanding both academic and applied problems in ecology. This edition of the course will focus on consumer-resource interactions in times of global environmental change at three levels of integration: the individual-population level, the community-ecosystem level and the socio-ecological level.
The topics will be introduced by world-renowned experts, with a focus on the latest developments and ongoing research efforts. The introductions will provide the starting point for practical work by the participants to make the acquired knowledge operational. To this end, sub-groups are challenged to develop ideas for their own research: analyzing their own data, writing a proposal, planning an experiment, developing a model or writing a paper.

– On Sunday evening, we start with warming-up lectures.
– On Monday, the basics of consumer-resource interactions and the topics will be introduced. Then groups will be formed.
– During the following days, there will be lectures on specific topics, followed by discussion. The rest of the day will be spent on the practical work, under the supervision of the lecturers and the organisers.
– On the last day, the groups present their practical work to all participants.

PhD top up scholarship – Understanding and managing climate risks to waterway health in unregulated river systems
PhD project with industry funding – Modelling shoreline vegetation to inform operations of Lake Victoria, NSW
PhD top up scholarship – Improving flow-ecology models to improve environmental water management in a changing climate
The Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN) in Paris offers a 20-month (renewable) contract to a fishery scientist with strong skills in modelling of fish stocks. This position supports the development of robust assessment methods and harvest strategies for toothfish fisheries in the Southern Ocean. He/she will contribute to fisheries management outcomes under the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) and research projects on the Southern Ocean ecosystem led by the MNHN.
Essential requirements are:
1) the completion of a PhD, Master or engineer degree in relevant discipline, such as fishery science, statistics, population dynamics, resource modelling,
2) competence in the use of databases and statistical software packages such as R,
3) effective oral and written communication of research results and their implications for scientists, industry stakeholders, government and the public, and
4) Candidates must be fluent in French, for more information, see the job description (in french here: www.mnhn.fr/fr/recrutement/emplois-stages).
Applications must be submitted by email by sending a letter of motivation with justification of skills for the position and a detailed Curriculum Vitae, to Prof. Guy Duhamel (guy.duhamel) and Patrice Pruvost (patrice.pruvost) before the 30th of June 2018.
Using Management Strategy Evaluation to understand the consequences of mismatch between Sablefish stock structure and the scale of assessment and management across the northeast Pacific.
Natural Resources Canada Postdoctoral Research Program
Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to lead a research project on the population ecology and management of Sablefish. The Principal Investigators on the project are Drs. Brendan Connors (DFO Institute of Ocean Sciences), and Sean Cox (Simon Fraser University); key collaborators include Drs. Melissa Haltuch (NOAA NW Fisheries Science Center), and Dana Hanselman (NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center), as well as Carrie Holt and Sean Anderson (DFO Pacific Biological Station).
Sablefish are a long-lived and commercially-valuable deep-water species that range from Southern California to the Bering Sea. Sablefish are assessed and managed at regional scales (i.e., Alaska, British Columbia and the US West Coast) but are a highly mobile straddling stock with little genetic evidence of population structure across these management regions. The conservation and fishery consequences of this mismatch between Sablefish stock structure and the scale of assessment and management are unknown. The objective of this project is to work collaboratively with an international team of Sablefish scientists to conduct a Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) that is based on Sablefish population dynamics and stock structure across their range. We will use the MSE to understand the potential consequences of the mismatch between Sablefish stock structure and management by simulation testing current, and potential future, management procedures (data collection scheme, stock assessment method, harvest policy rules) to quantify their performance against a range of conservation and fishery objectives. The outcomes of the proposed work will provide scientific advice to help advance international fisheries governance by improving our understanding of Sablefish population dynamics and their management implications over the full range of their distribution.
While the focus of the position is on the above research, the position will afford ample opportunity for motivated individuals to lead and/or contribute to other research on groundfish population ecology and management.
ESSENTIAL ASSET QUALIFICATIONS
Applicants must have completed a PhD in fisheries science or a related discipline within the past three years, and have demonstrated expertise in spatial population ecology and advanced statistical and simulation modelling. Successful candidates will be self-motivated and have a proven track record of publishing their research in peer-reviewed journals. The position is available for candidates of all nationalities but those who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada must satisfy Canadian immigration requirements.
LOCATION OF TENURE FLEXIBLE: Pacific Biological Station (PBS), Nanaimo, BC; Institute of Ocean Sciences (IOS), Sidney, BC; or School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC. The west coast of Canada, is well known for its rainforests, beaches, and mountains. It is a destination for kayaking, hiking, surfing, skiing, diving, biking and camping.
POSITION DETAILS AND HOW TO APPLY
This fellowship is available to start September 1, 2018 and will be completed by January 1, 2021 with a salary of $65,000 CAD per annum plus travel support. The Canadian Government Postdoctoral Research Program is administered by Natural Resources Canada (NRC). More details about the program can be found at: https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/careers/17880.
Interested applicants should email: 1) CV; and 2) cover letter outlining the experience and skills they bring to the project to: Brendan Connors, Brendan.Connors
Short-listed applicants will be invited to develop a full application through the NRC system. CVs will be accepted until the position is filled.
