Later this year, the Midwater Assessment and Conservation Engineering (MACE) program at NOAA’s Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle will advertise a position for someone with experience in underwater acoustics, broadband acoustics, and signal/data processing. The ideal candidate would be formally trained in acoustics and physics, and have a strong interest in applied/practical topics. We’ll be looking for a candidate who can work both independently and with a diverse team of researchers, is interested in working on research vessels at sea and in laboratories on shore, and has strong communication skills. The successful candidate will conduct research primarily focused on using active acoustics to study marine organisms and their environment, and will work closely with MACE researchers to improve methods used in acoustic-trawl surveys of marine species. As this position will be a full-time federal employee, applicants must be U.S. citizens.
