Job Description:

(1) State space modeling of Great Lakes zooplankton. Lead role in using and developing novel state-space models to examine the influence of an invasive predator (Bythotrephes), global climate change and other factors on zooplankton prey in the Great Lakes. One focus is to use this method to identify and quantify non-consumptive effects (NCEs - i.e., due to adaptive anti-predator behavior) of the predator on the natural abundance and dynamics of animals in the field. The incumbent will apply novel state-space model approaches (e.g. iterated filtering) to time series data and compare their utility to other approaches. Resulting parameters may be used together with individually based models to examine potential indirect effects and interactive effects of invasive species to fish recruitment.
