Colleagues and I are currently looking for two post-doctoral candidates to collaborate on spatio-temporal models:
2.5 years of funding to understand environmental drivers of pelagic fish distribution near Vancounver Island BC, including impacts on predator-prey dynamics and natural mortality (details at https://tinyurl.com/lrpqmmg). The candidate must be located in Nanaimo for the majority of work (but funding includes periodic travel to Seattle), and must have received a Ph.D. within five years. Interested applicants should email: 1) CV; and 2) cover letter outlining the experience and skills they bring to the project to Jennifer Boldt (Jennifer.Boldt@dfo-mpo.gc.ca), Jim Thorson (James.Thorson@noaa.gov), and Robyn Forrest (Robyn.Forrest@dfo-mpo. gc.ca).
1 year of funding to understand how best to estimate length-structure for tropic tuna species, in preparation for an international CAPAM meeting on the topic in March 2018 (details at http://tinyurl.com/l4vgaev). The candidate must be located in La Jolla, and will be invited to contribute to the planned CAPAM meeting. Applicants should send a CV plus an cover letter explaining their interest to Brice Semmens (firstname.lastname@example.org), Jim Thorson (James.Thorson@noaa.gov), and Mark Maunder (email@example.com).
I’m also happy to point out several new papers demonstrating spatio-temporal analysis using FishStats models including:
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).
