Position has been filled
The Center for Community and Citizen Science (CCCS) and the Center for Environmental Policy and Behavior (CEPB) seek an accomplished quantitative social scientist to lead a project focused on human use of coastal and ocean resources. The postdoctoral scholar will conduct analyses of data generated by MPA Watch, an innovative citizen science project in which volunteers collect data about onshore and offshore human activities along the California Coast (learn more at mpawatch.org). The position requires high-level statistical methods in R, including spatial models and the capacity to estimate models that include missing data and data that is only partially observed across geography. The role also involves working with state agencies and non-profit partners involved in the adaptive management of California’s network of marine protected areas.
This full-time position is funded for 18 months, beginning early 2020. The scholar will be jointly supervised by the CCS Executive Director and CEPB Director, and will participate actively in the respective intellectual communities in those two centers.
