FERU Research Associate

The Fisheries Economics Research Unit (FERU) in the Fisheries Centre at the University of British Columbia is seeking a Research Associate (RA) with experience in interdisciplinary research focusing on how environmental and socio-economic systems impact fisheries, coastal livelihoods, and well-being at global and local scales.

The successful candidate will conduct integrated modelling of socio-economic and fisheries scenarios for projects investigating the future sustainability of fisheries and ocean ecosystems in Canada, Southeast Asia, and the South China Sea region. The RA will also contribute to projects on fisheries policy and food security in developing countries, and will be expected to participate in grant writing and providing support to graduate students.

Candidates must possess a Ph.D. with evidence of excellence in research as demonstrated by their published contributions, as well as having a strong background in interdisciplinary research, with the ability to collaborate with individuals from different disciplinary backgrounds and sectors. Required skills include socio-economic and bio-economic analysis, working with large datasets, and experience in designing and conducting social science research with coastal communities, academia, public, and private sectors. Good knowledge of fisheries economics and its applications is required, as is the ability to work independently and meet deadlines. The RA must also have demonstrated capacity at securing competitive research grants. 

UBC hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to employment equity and diversity within its community. We especially welcome applications from visible minority group members, women, aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities.

We encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.  Please indicate your legal status to work in Canada.

This position is subject to final budgetary approval, and the salary will be commensurate with the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate. The appointment will be for one year with the possibility of extension. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2015.
