The Old Dominion University Research Foundation has a current opportunity for a Research Associate to work in the Department of Biological Sciences at Old Dominion University. The position is in the Marine Sustainability Ecology Lab led by Dr. Sara Maxwell (http://maxwelllab.weebly.com).  The project involves investigating marine protected area effectiveness for large marine species and will combine animal movement, environmental data and analytical approaches from ecology, computer science and social science.




A strong background in the acquisition and application of remotely-sensed oceanographic data and experience with satellite tracking data is highly desired.  The incumbent will collaborate with graduate students, post docs, and faculty to address fundamental questions surrounding marine protected areas and their effectiveness for large marine species.


Job Responsibilities:
1. Conducting analytical work with satellite tracking and remotely-sensed data
2. Conducting analyses in Marxan
3. Publication of peer-reviewed manuscripts


We are seeking a highly task-oriented, quantitative Ph.D. with significant research experience, particularly in animal movement and modeling.  Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Biology, Ecology, Marine Sciences or similar field.  This position is a part of a one-year Pew Charitable Trust grant and has the potential for extension.  The position is available immediately; subsequent years depend on funding availability.  A Ph.D. degree in Biology, Ecology, Marine Sciences or similar field is required. There is potential for the incumbent to work remotely.


Highly motivated and interested candidates are encouraged to visit the ODU Research Foundation Employment page and apply at: http://researchfoundation.odu.edu to position #17-041.  Please include CV and cover letter describing research experience and interests, and contact information for three potential references. The review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
