The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) pioneers collaborative solutions to global ocean challenges. Our scientists explore dynamic ocean systems from marine life to environmental conditions to coastal economies. We infuse our discoveries into the policy arena and design solutions with fishermen and seafood businesses to protect fishery resources, harvest them responsibly, and market them as premium quality food. We share our discoveries with the public and nurture a culture of leadership in communities that depend on the sea. Our education programs cultivate science literacy and build a foundation of collaborative problem-solving among our next generation of leaders, scientists, citizens, and stewards. Each year, we serve over 25,000 stakeholders from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia.
GMRI is seeking applicants for a 2-year postdoctoral researcher position. The postdoc will work under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Kerr at GMRI and collaborate with Dr. Steven Cadrin at University Massachusetts Dartmouth School for Marine Science and Technology. The research will focus on evaluating the performance of alternative management procedures that aim to resolve the identified mismatch in the scale of biological population structure and management units of Atlantic cod. The candidate will apply management strategy evaluation to quantify and compare the performance of alternative management procedures that range in their alignment of management units and the biological stock structure of cod.
Start date is flexible; the successful candidate could begin as early as summer 2021. The position will be located at GMRI (www.gmri.org) in Portland, Maine with the potential for remote work arrangements.
