Summer Job Opportunity: Population Modelling

Summer Research Position Available

I’m currently looking to fill a summer research position.

The goal of the project is to:

  1. Review population level ecological models used to partition total mortality into natural, and anthropogenic rates. This will include (at least) the Bence Statistical Catch-At-Age (SCAA) model.
  2. Update the model(s) to account for spatial or temporal correlations inherent to harvest data (using Besag’s conditionally autoregressive random effects model).

A strong statistical and computer programming background would be beneficial, but strength in one of the two should suffice.

If you are interested in this project or if you have questions, please contact me immediately.
