Job Announcement: Fisheries Research Scientist 

Position: Scientist I working for a NOAA contractor on a temporary contract
of approximately 1 year. 

Project Title: Antarctic Pack Ice Seals (APIS) analyses

Education and Experience: PH.D degree in Biology or related science with
emphasis in fisheries, oceanography or natural science. Three (3) years
experience with marine mammal surveys, abundance estimation, and statistical
analyses are required.

Location: Alaska Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Mammal Lab

Duties: Full time position, 40 hours per week. 

Duties to be performed under this task order include but are not limited to
conducting research on the abundance, trends, and distribution of Antarctic
pack ice seals.  The main focus will be to estimate the abundance of
Antarctic pack-ice seals (crabeater, leopard, Ross, and Weddell seals) from

The successful candidate will work as a member of a scientific team, but
will have the lead for undertaking the data processing and analyses as
agreed in consultation with the team.  This work will involve evaluating
scientific literature and compiling data from a wide variety of sources.
Previous experience with marine mammal surveys, abundance estimation, and
statistical analyses are required.

Salary: based on $28.52 per hour plus paid medical and dental plan
