Many research programs are housed at the New England Aquarium. One such area of focus is bycatch. Bycatch is the accidental capture of untargeted species by fishermen, and is one of the greatest threats facing many endangered marine animals.
Responsibilities: Accompany and assist research team during field investigations of the biological impacts associated with the liquid natural gas (LNG) facilities in Massachusetts Bay. Assist research scientists with the mining, exploring and analyzing of data sets that relate to the physiological stress response in sharks and other fish (in response to human induced stressors). These responsibilities are essential components in ongoing research projects that we ultimately aim to publish. Other duties include organizing and maintaining these data in a manner most conducive to later accessibility (e.g. spreadsheets), and corresponding with outside researchers about accessing auxiliary (public) data sets.
Please submit a cover letter, resume and transcript in addition to the online application, and state how you meet the above requirements in your cover letter.
