Colleagues and I are currently looking for two post-doctoral candidates to collaborate on spatio-temporal models:

I’m also happy to point out several new papers demonstrating spatio-temporal analysis using FishStats models including:

  1. Multispecies models for interactions using package MIST:
  2. Showing improvement in assessment models given spatio-temporal index standardization using package SpatialDeltaGLMM:
  3. Attributing distribution shift to climate and age-structured dynamics using package VAST:
  4. Synthesizing 10+ data sets to estimate distribution for input to ecosystem models using package SpatialDeltaGLMM:
  5. Standardizing fishery-dependent data while accounting for fisher targetting using package VAST:

and the many exciting papers in the forthcoming CJFAS special issue on spatial stock assessment models.

Finally, Mark Maunder, Brice Semmens and I are organizing a CAPAM meeting in La Jolla for Feb. 26-March 2, 2018 on spatio-temporal models for analyzing compositional and fishery data. We look forward to hearing about the diverse work in this topic, and will organizing a special issue (maybe in ICES JMS).

cheers, Jim
