FishSCORE program manager
Gulf of Maine Research Institute GMRI is seeking applicants for a combined project manager and research associate to work under the supervision of Dr. Kathy Mills; the position will be based in Portland, Maine. The successful candidate will support coordination and management of FishSCORE (Fisheries Strategies for Changing Oceans and Resilient Ecosystems by 2030), a global program endorsed by the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. FishSCORE is a global network of fishery scientists, stakeholders, resource managers, community practitioners, and policy makers who will co-develop knowledge and tools for assessing and operationalizing climate resilience in diverse fisheries around the world. The successful candidate will coordinate, facilitate, and participate in a broad range of activities related to FishSCORE (see ‘responsibilities’ section for more details). While FishSCORE will be the primary focus, this position will also support research related to climate impacts, adaptation and resilience, which will contribute to the overall goals of the FishSCORE program. The successful candidate would serve as a research associate on a few projects aligned with his/her areas of expertise, experience, and interest. Within the existing project portfolio, topical expertise in quantitative ecological analysis, ecological and coupled social-ecological modeling, or qualitative social science would be valuable. This is an exciting and unique opportunity for candidates to hone their research skills while simultaneously gaining valuable project management experience.
Postdoc in sustainable antifouling strategies in shipping
Chalmers University of Technology This postdoctoral position at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences offers you the opportunity: - To join an interdisciplinary team of experts within the field of antifouling strategies; - To further develop a novel, cutting-edge tool to assess the sustainability of antifouling strategies; - For high societal impact as your research results will be directly implemented and used by stakeholders; - To create a large network, both within industry and academia and develop your academic competence.

Postdoctoral Associate – Global Plankton Biodiversity Monitoring with Bio-GO-SHIP and MBON
NOAA The Northern Gulf Institute at Mississippi State University is hiring a Postdoctoral Associate to help lead a global plankton biodiversity monitoring effort. This position is based at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Miami, Florida. This postdoc position will provide substantial opportunities for seagoing field work, molecular biology laboratory work, and bioinformatics computational work. Some experience in each of these areas is expected, but ample learning opportunities for growth and development will be provided. The succuessful applicant will investigate patterns of global plankton/eDNA biodiversity in sustained monitoring efforts Bio-GO-SHIP and the Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON).
Postdoctoral Associate – Biological Carbon Pump in the Gulf of Mexico
NOAA The Northern Gulf Institute at Mississippi State University is hiring a Postdoctoral Associate to study the biological carbon pump in the Gulf of Mexico using omics methods. This position is based at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Miami, Florida. This postdoc position will provide substantial opportunities for seagoing field work, molecular biology laboratory work, and bioinformatics computational work. Some experience in each of these areas is expected, but ample learning opportunities for growth and development will be provided. The succuessful applicant will lead efforts to understand microbial roles in the biological carbon pump by analyzing sediment trap samples collected in collaboration with the US Geological Survey and University of South Carolina in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
Research Program Manager – HPC-powered Bioinformatics on NOAA Supercomputers
NOAA The Northern Gulf Institute at Mississippi State University is hiring a Project Manager to lead the project “HPC-powered Bioinformatics to Unlock the Potential of NOAA ’Omics Data”. This position is based at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Miami, Florida.
