The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) is seeking a post-doctoral Assistant Research Scientist to work on a funded 2-year project in Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM). This unique position, coordinating with a multidisciplinary team of research leaders in EBM involving oceanographers, fisheries scientists, social scientist and science policy experts, provides an opportunity to work at the intersection of science and policy on fundamentally challenging ecosystem questions. The successful candidate will interact with researchers, planners and policy makers in several regions of the US to help identify and address the significant information gaps that limit implementation of an ecosystem approach. The position will involve literature research, workshop development and stakeholder surveys to create implementation strategies for enabling EBM in regional coastal ecosystems. The appointee will have opportunities to collaborate with scientists across UMCES (www.umces.edu). A Ph.D. in Marine Science, Environmental Policy or a related field is preferred. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Full university health and retirement benefits are available.
Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2017. Applications should include CV, copies of up to 3 publications, statement of research interests, one-page summary of Ph.D. thesis, names/addresses of four references.
