The Centre for Fisheries Ecosystems Research (CFER) at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University focuses on fisheries science and the marine ecosystems of Newfoundland and Labrador. CFER is looking for exceptional researchers to develop research programs in quantitative fisheries science that compliments and extends existing CFER capabilities and has industry relevance. Duties will include the development and implementation of a multiyear research program focusing on spatial state-space stock assessment models and management strategy evaluation for commercial North Atlantic species. This will require liaising with provincial and federal departments and non- government organizations, including fish harvesters and processors. The successful candidates will be expected to supervise graduate students and PDF’s. Opportunities for research and collaboration within other university and government agency scientists are excellent.
The successful applicants will have a Ph.D. in quantitative fisheries science or ecology, or a closely related discipline (e.g. mathematics, statistics, or computer science) with related experience in the North Atlantic or similar fisheries ecosystems. The successful applicants will have a strong publication record for their career stage. Demonstrated abilities in designing projects, writing scientific proposals, securing funding and implementing research programs are required. The ability and the willingness to work in a team setting as well as with industry, fish harvesters and government agencies is also required. Stock assessment modelling experience is a definite asset.
