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 full-time Quantitative Research Associate position focused on statistical analyses and modeling of fish population and marine ecosystem data.

Projects use a range of analytical approaches. We are particularly interested in applicants with a background in spatial distribution modeling and analyses of spatial model outputs. Responsibilities and leadership within projects will be scaled with the successful applicant’s skill and experience levels.
