CSS is seeking a Marine Quantitative Ecologist to join our team which will support NOAA NCCOS.
- NOAA NCCOS seeks highly qualified candidates for a Marine Quantitative Ecologist position on an interdisciplinary research team of contract and federal employees. The integrated research team will support the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) Marine Spatial Ecology Division (http://coastalscience.noaa.gov/), which is a nationally recognized scientific research program that conducts spatial ecological analysis, statistical modeling, ecological forecasting, and predictive mapping to support marine ecosystem management, conservation, and spatial planning. The candidate will be employed via a contract to work at the NOAA National Ocean Service in Beaufort, NC.
- We seek candidates with demonstrated expertise using scientific analyses of underwater photogrammetry to fit a variety of advanced analytical and statistical models to marine ecological data – including both physical and biological aspects of marine and coastal ecosystems. Experience in marine sciences is strongly preferred, however, candidates with strong backgrounds in remote sensing and spatial/geostatistical environmental modeling will also be considered. Successful candidates will help conceive and implement solutions to large, complex spatial and spatio-temporal challenges of change detection, including modeling of habitat usage, marine wildlife survey data, and/or physical, oceanographic, and geological aspects of marine habitat. Examples of potential projects include spatial and spatiotemporal modeling of corals, seafloor habitats, estuarine and coastal habitats, and marine ecosystem structure in a variety of US jurisdictions.
