The Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research (JIMAR) is
currently recruiting a Spatial Data Analyst within the NOAA Fisheries
Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD) based in Honolulu, HI. As a part of the
ESD, the Spatial Data Analyst participates in research to assess spatial
patterns and understand drivers of ecological dynamics in coral reef
ecosystems of the U.S. Pacific Islands (including the Hawaiian and Marianas
Islands, American Samoa, and several islands and atolls in the central
Pacific). Incumbent may also support other research within ESD (e.g.,
pelagic ecosystems) as a secondary priority.

DUTIES: Leads geospatial research projects and data analysis. Develops and
implements methods for deriving biologically important characteristics of
coral reef environments from various data sources (in-situ and remotely
sensed datasets). Uses programming software (e.g. R, QGIS, ArcGIS, Python)
to integrate and analyze ecological and environmental data. Participates in
strategic planning and prepares grant proposals to advance the Project’s
geospatial research and spatial analysis capabilities to support coral reef
ecosystem research and monitoring activities to meet resource management
needs. Responsible for spatial data management activities and coordination
of said activities with data management personnel. Reports on results of
geospatial data products and analyses, and delivers presentations to
research investigators, resource managers, and partners. Trains and

conferences, and meetings to present research and train interested partners.


EDUCATION/TRAINING: Master’s Degree from an accredited college or
university in Geospatial Science, Oceanography, Marine Ecology, or related

EXPERIENCE: Five to seven years of experience in processing terrestrial or
marine data and performing spatial analyses, which includes experience in
the use of geospatial data (including satellite-derived) to quantify
biological, physical or oceanographic phenomena, and experience with
relational database management systems and managing geospatial databases.
Working knowledge of geospatial statistical methods and an understanding of
marine ecological, oceanographic, and biological processes affecting coral
reef ecosystems. Authorship or co-authorship on at least two (2) scientific
or technical papers.

SALARY: Commensurate with Qualifications; full medical and dental benefit
and retirement

DEADLINE: Please note the deadline to apply is May 22, 2020.
