The sea turtle program at the Southeast Fisheries Science Center focuses on demographic studies, population dynamics, development of quantitative stock assessment tools, and on fisheries interactions. Development of population assessment tools that incorporate the best available data and information into quantitative frameworks are critically needed for evaluating the impacts of management actions, determining anthropogenic mortality, and setting future research priorities. We are looking for a candidate with strong quantitative and computer programming skills that are interested in developing new methods (analytic tools) for assessing anthropogenic impacts on protected species, starting with developing tools specific to sea turtle populations. Experience working with modeling populations and statistical skills are desirable. The applicant should be comfortable with working on complex problems with little data and collaborating with multiple teams pursuing similar goals.
