[We have extended our search and reduced the required qualifications for the Bayesian statistical consultant opportunity in our Greater Amberjack project.]

This is an exciting opportunity to provide statistical support for a large-scale, 2-year multi-institutional project to estimate the abundance of Greater Amberjack in the Gulf of Mexico and the east coast of the US. We’re looking for someone with excellent skills in Bayesian modeling who can devote up to 52 days a year working on the project to develop, code, and evaluate models for a variety of data types with spatial dependence. The consultant will contribute directly to the project component that is led by Department of Fisheries Science Professors John Hoenig and Grace Chiu at William & Mary’s Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS). Interested parties can find more information at https://tinyurl.com/VIMS2021-statistics-consultant or contact John Hoenig (hoenig@vims.edu) directly. Review of applications will begin on December 13, 2021.

We would greatly appreciate it if you would pass this along to your network of people interested in consultancy/employment opportunities.
