The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) pioneers collaborative solutions to global ocean challenges. We steward the Gulf of Maine ecosystem and the hardworking communities that depend on it through a mix of science, education, and community programming.
The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is seeking applicants for a 2-year postdoctoral researcher position. The postdoc will work under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Kerr and collaborate with a team of scientists at GMRI, Rutgers University, and NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NOAA NEFSC). The research will focus on developing an integrated modeling framework to inform marine resource decision-making under projected climate change in the Northeast U.S. shelf ecosystem. The framework will be applied to evaluate candidate climate-informed assessment models for the research-track stock assessments for Atlantic cod and black sea bass.
The position has a competitive annual salary plus benefits. Start date is flexible; the successful candidate could begin as early as December 2020. The position will be located at GMRI (www.gmri.org) in Portland, Maine with the potential for remote work arrangements.
