My research group in the biology department at WHOI is looking for a postdoc to help develop new numerical ecosystem models of the Northwest Atlantic. The model will apply cutting edge trait-based eco-physiology to parameterize planktonic growth and interspecific interactions, focusing on the Northwest Atlantic continental shelf and slope waters. The model will build from the ‘Darwin’ ecosystem model developed at MIT, including collaboration with MIT and UC Santa Cruz researchers. Scientific goals of the project include characterization of primary and secondary production, assimilation and/or validation with chemical and biological data, and targeted simulations to support regional ecosystem and fisheries management. This is a great opportunity to dig into a regional ecosystem and build numerical tools that can be used for a variety of basic and applied science questions. The position can be based in Woods Hole, Boston, or remote from within the US. More info here:
