Location: Alaska Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Mammal Lab (NMML), Seattle, WA. Data processing and analysis will be done at NMML and no field work is anticipated.
Duties: Full time position, 40 hours per week.
Duties to be performed under this task order include but are not limited to conducting research on the abundance, trends, and distribution of Antarctic pack ice seals.

Specific deliverables are required to be accomplished by due dates specified in work assignments and submitted to the NMFS Project Leader for approval and acceptance.
The successful candidate will work as a member of a scientific team, but will have the lead for undertaking the data processing and analyses as agreed in consultation with the team.

Salary: based on $28.52 per hour plus paid medical and dental plan
