Subject: Paid Intern Position available - Climate Impacts on Fisheries
The goal of the research project is to evaluate the impacts of climate and
temperature variability on marine fish abundances, and then evaluate the
repercussions for sustainable fisheries management. While climate is
increasingly being invoked in fisheries modelling, robust evaluations of the
impact of variable temperatures have yet to be done. The output from this
research project will be used to assist NOAA scientists in fisheries
Intern responsibilities will be assisting in gathering key life-history
parameters for harvested fish species in the Northeast Shelf Regional
Ecosystem from literature and FishBase, an online database. The intern will
also have the opportunity to learn the relationships between key traits and
population growth rates of marine species, be introduced to dynamical
multi-species modelling, and gain insight into collaborative efforts between
NOAA scientists and academics.
Interested students should send as a single PDF: their resume, current
transcript (unofficial is fine), and a cover letter as to why they are
qualified for the position and their career goals. Review of applications
will begin immediately and will continue until position is filled.
