Integrated Statistics is looking for a part-time Telemetry Data Analyst 
to support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) 
National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Fisheries Science 
Center (NEFSC).

The Telemetry Data Analyst will work with the Seal Ecology and 
Assessment Program within the Protected Species Branch. The mission of 
the Seal Program is to provide scientific information to managers and 
stakeholders on the role of seals as important sentinels of the marine 
ecosystem, support conservation efforts to maintain a healthy and 
optimally stable population of seals in the northeast, and provide 
recommendations on mitigation measures to minimize conflicts between 
seals and humans. As part of this program we study the abundance of 
stocks in the Northwest Atlantic via manned and unmanned surveys to 
investigate population trends and distribution, as well as behaviors of 
individual seals via acoustic and satellite telemetry to investigate how 
behavior may be influenced by ecological and anthropogenic factors.

The Telemetry Data Analyst will work with others in the Seal Program to 
analyze pinniped telemetry data. Duties include summarizing telemetry 
tracks, dive behaviors, and acoustic detections from tagged individuals; 
fitting appropriate models to these data to evaluate movements, 
occurrence, or foraging behavior of tagged individuals; building species 
distribution models from existing telemetry and sightings data to 
evaluate overlap with anthropogenic activities; assisting in grant 
report writing; and publishing findings in peer-reviewed manuscripts.

*Qualifications *

 1. Graduate degree or equivalent in fisheries, quantitative ecology, or
    a closely related field - *required*
 2. Experience processing and interpreting ARGOS/Wildlife Computer
    satellite telemetry data - *required*
 3. Demonstrated proficiency in R to process and analyze telemetry data
    - *required*
 6. Excellent communication skills both verbally and using written
    materials (including visual presentations) with a variety of
    audiences including technical, scientific, and the general public -
 7. US citizenship and presence, and the ability to comply with EO 14042
    - *required*
 8. Experience utilizing state-space models or equivalent to model and
    predict animal movements and behaviors through time - preferred
 9. Experience with Oracle tables and SQL language - preferred

The position is part-time, with some flexibility in hours. The rate of  
pay depends on skills and experience. The position is for one year, with 
the possibility of extension. The work may potentially be performed
