Position: Post Doctoral Fellow
Institution: University of South Carolina Union
Location: Union, South Carolina, United States
Duties: This job will explore the responses of forage fish populations in eastern boundary upwelling ecosystems to the physical and biogeochemical variability associated with future climate change. The project goal is estimation of fisheries productivity given changes in physical climate processes, nutrient stoichiometry, acidification, and plankton production and composition. Developing models linking hydrographic, biogeochemical, and lower-trophic-level projections with forage-fish populations; considering the consequences of changing forage fish availability to higher-trophic-level populations; and collaborating with researchers exploring economic and management implications of changes in fisheries productivity, distribution, and demand
Requirements: Ph.D. in Marine Science or Oceanography. Detailed knowledge of climate influence on marine ecosystems in upwelling areas. Knowledge of the dynamics of small pelagic, planktivorous fish populations. Proficiency in quantitative modeling and fluency in one or more computer programming languages. Knowledge of standard research-related statistical, graphing, and presentation software
