Postdoctoral Research Associate: Population modelling (The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA)



Location: Aquatic Ecology Lab, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH

Salary: $45,000 annually, with full benefits; one year with potential for
renewal

Description: We seek a highly motivated individual to assist with the
development of a spatially explicit population model for Asian carp to
evaluate various harvest scenario options.  This model will facilitate
management decisions regarding harvest strategies along the Illinois River
as a means to reduce the odds of Asian carp entering the Great Lakes via the
Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal.  This will include parameterization from
empirical data, model construction, and scenario simulations to identify
optimal harvest strategies while accounting for uncertainty, as well as
sensitivity analyses to prioritize future parameter estimations. The
incumbent will be supervised by Dr. David Glover and Dr. Libby Marschall and
will work closely with researchers from Southern Illinois University,
Illinois Department of Natural Resources, among others.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in biological sciences, ecology, mathematical
modeling, or related field is required. Familiarity with computer
programming, population modeling, Bayesian statistics, optimization
modeling, and ability to work independently and collaboratively is highly
desired.
