Employment and Research Opportunities at PCIC

PCIC is seeking an Assistant Programmer and a Postdoctoral Scientist: Salmon Population Risk Assessment.

Assistant Programmer (Co-Op)

PCIC is seeking to fill an Assistant Programmer position. The Assistant Programmer works to build software and technology to support Pacific salmon management, as part of a project funded by the British Columbia Salmon Restoration and Innovation (BCSRIF) Fund. Working with PCIC's Computational Support Group and Hydrologic Impacts theme, you will develop the informational infrastructure (summary data, statistics and climate-based salmon vulnerability maps) to be incorporated into a web tool to support fisheries planning, habitat restoration and management. The successful applicant will be a part of a talented and dedicated team that enables access to PCIC's flagship data products and innovative web-based analysis tools. Their software will play a key role in informing government policy with respect to the impacts of climate change, and will help to disseminate climate change information to users and stakeholders.

Postdoctoral Scientist: Salmon Population Risk Assessment

PCIC is seeking a Postdoctoral Scientist to study Salmon Population Risk Assessment. The Postdoctoral Scientist will undertake risk assessment and related research under climate change scenarios to characterize spatio-temporal risk levels at two life history stages (i.e. adult migration and egg-alevin incubation) for salmon conservation units in select BC drainages. This work will employ outputs of climate change projections of hydrological and thermal regimes to assess potential limits on the ability of salmon populations of wild- and hatchery-origin to sustain production or respond to restoration efforts among diverse BC watersheds. They will work at PCIC under the supervision of the Lead for the Hydrologic Impacts theme and will collaborate very closely with DFO scientists.
