Overview and Duties
In brief, JIMAR/NOAA PIFSC Coral Reef Ecosystems Division (CRED) in
Honolulu, Hawaii is looking for a practically-minded reef fish ecologist
with good quantitative skills to join the fish team. Much of our work
involves conducting long-term monitoring of US-affiliated coral reef areas
in the Pacific. In addition, we work closely with local and federal
agencies on a variety of management focused programs. There is some
flexibility, but likely the position will involve considerable amounts of
fieldwork, including participation in research and monitoring cruises on
NOAA vessels which involve several weeks or more at sea.
Core duties involve analysis of survey data to improve understanding of
coral reef fish ecosystems in U.S. Pacific Islands. Implementation of
underwater visual survey programs to assess and monitor coral reef fish
communities and essential fish habitats. Application of data management and
advanced statistical techniques to analyze coral reef fish and related
ecological data. Preparation of technical reports and scientific
manuscripts summarizing results of these analyses, and presentation of
findings at national and international meetings. The position involves
working closely with partners in local jurisdictions and research
institutions to build strong collaborative relationships. Assistance with
management of the CRED including proposal writing, administrative
functions, and supervision of personnel.
