Postdoctoral researcher: Modeling social-ecological dynamics in recreational fishery landscapes

We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to model social-ecological dynamics in recreational fisheries landscapes. This is a unique opportunity for a researcher with strong quantitative skills and broad interests in fisheries, social-ecological dynamics, and/or economics to collaborate with our diverse, NSF-funded team, which includes fisheries scientists and aquatic ecosystem ecologists, resource and environmental economists, and social and sustainability scientists. The researcher will also have access to extensive existing social and ecological data sets including results from new large-scale experiments.

This position will be based at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies with project lead PI Dr. Chris Solomon. There will be extensive collaboration with other project co-PIs and graduate students at Arizona State University (Dr. Marco Janssen), the University of Washington (Dr. Sunny Jardine), Rutgers University (Dr. Olaf Jensen), and the University of Notre Dame (Dr. Stuart Jones), and with partners in governmental and non-governmental organizations. The researcher may also engage with ongoing project field work if desired, although the primary responsibilities will be modeling and synthesis.

The desired start date is around September 2019. The initial appointment will be for 18 months, with possible extension. The Cary Institute offers competitive salary and benefits, a stimulating environment known for excellent postdoctoral mentoring, and proximity to urban and rural amenities.
