Research Associate on developing fish passage simulation models

Principal Investigator: Murdoch McAllister
Location: Vancouver, B.C. but based at home during COVID 19 restrictions
Deadline: October 30, 2020

Develop a computer simulation model that represents alternative hypotheses about how vital rates of spring run chinook salmon and winter steelhead in sub-basins of the Willamette River (WR) could respond to the implementation of different downstream and upstream fish passage options. The simulation modeling approaches taken will be Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) and structured decision analysis


Postdoctoral Fellow: Ocean Equity and Blue Economy Analogues

Research Unit: Nippon Foundation Ocean Nexus Center
Supervisor: Dr. Andrés Cisneros-Montemayor
Location: Vancouver, B.C. but based at home during COVID 19 restrictions
Deadline: November 20, 2020

This position is part of an international and interdisciplinary research collaboration on the Blue Economy, its implications for future ocean policy, and the challenges and opportunities of ensuring that sustainable economic development fully considers social equity and cultural and political contexts and goals. The main role of the postdoc will be to consider existing quantitative information on Blue Economy capacity in light of current national and international proposals for ocean development, with a view to suggesting which economic investments or policy decisions can help ocean sectors to support development goals. As a first step, a critical review will focus on identifying equity outcomes of historical ecosystem or fish stock recoveries in order to inform future ocean policy.
