Position opening - Cetacean Ecologist - Pacific Islands Fisheries  
Science Center

The Protected Species Division of the NMFS’s Pacific Islands  
Fisheries Science Center in Honolulu is seeking a well-qualified  
candidate to lead their developing Cetacean Research Program. Over 24  
species of cetaceans are known to inhabit the 1.5 million sq miles of  
water in the Pacific Islands Region surrounding Hawaii, American  
Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands,  
Palmyra Atoll and Kingman Reef, Baker, Howland, Johnston and Wake  
Islands, However; very little is known about cetacean population  
dynamics, distribution and movements, and stock structure in this  
vast area. The successful applicant will lead a small research team  
to address large gaps in our knowledge of cetacean in the region,  
providing incredible opportunities for scientific discovery. Due to  
the limited support of this young program, a highly collaborative  
approach to research is required to address applied scientific  
questions in this large area. The ideal candidate will possess a  
broad background in the study of cetaceans including but not limited  
to skills in stock assessment, photo-identification, passive  
acoustics, habitat assessment, and evaluation of marine mammal/ 
fishery interactions.
