OPEN: Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership (PMEP) Assessment Scientist
Deadline for written questions: Dec. 23, 2013
Deadline for Proposals: Jan. 3, 2014

The Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership (PMEP) and its assessment partners (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Fish Habitat Partnership, The Nature Conservancy) are conducting three Pacific Coast fish habitat assessments during the next several years:

(1) PMEP’s Nursery Habitat Assessment, focusing on nursery functions for juvenile fish in West Coast estuaries.
(2) The National Fish Habitat Plan (NFHP) National Estuary assessment, focusing on
threats to habitats of recreationally and commercially important fish stocks.
(3) A nearshore forage fish assessment, focusing on habitat-related changes over time in distribution and abundance of nine species of forage fish inhabiting estuary and nearshore habitats.

The PMEP seeks the services of an Assessment Scientist to work with the organizations producing deliverables for the three assessments, provide technical guidance, coordinate and assimilate scientific findings from key elements of each assessment, and produce a final report for the PMEP Nursery Habitat Assessment that incorporates the deliverables from the other two assessments, as appropriate.
