USGS Postdoctoral Position in Coldwater Fisheries and Climate Change The USGS Northern Rockies Aquatics Research Program and collaborators at Montana State University (MSU) are currently seeking a Postdoctoral fellow to work on a NOAA-funded project to understand climate change and drought risk and resilience of cold-water trout populations across the northern Rocky Mountains, USA. The successful candidate will be a part of an inter-disciplinary team to quantify relationships between climate change and trout production (rainbow, brown, bull, and cutthroat trout) for major rivers using long-term fisheries monitoring and climate data. This information will ultimately be used to develop drought early warning systems for state and federal natural resource managers. The project is led by researchers from the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center and MSU in collaboration with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, the National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and NOAA. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to collaborate and publish on a variety of research projects addressing native trout vulnerability and conservation across the northern Rockies and in Glacier National Park. This GS-11 or GS-12 (depending on experience) position will be physically based at the Glacier National Park field station (West Glacier, Montana) with an option of working remotely. Funding is available for 2-years and possible extension for up to 4-years, with a start date before the end of 2022. The position will be co-advised by Clint Muhlfeld (USGS) and Timothy Cline (MSU) and will be advertised on USA Jobs in late September/early October. This position is an excellent opportunity to work on an exciting and productive aquatics research team in one of the most beautiful landscapes in North America to deliver actional science for climate change adaptation and management.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in fisheries or related field; strong quantitative background; experience with R programming, integration of large data sets, statistical analysis, and population modeling; ability to work collaboratively and independently; demonstrated ability to publish in scientific journals; and a career interest in fisheries and aquatic ecology. Interested applicants should contact Clint Muhlfeld (cmuhlfeld@usgs.gov) for more details. The application will be available on USA jobs in the near future.
