The Center for Coastal Studies’ (CCS) Shark Ecology Program collaborates with several other organizations and has been at the forefront of the study of spatial ecology of sharks since 2019. The interdisciplinary nature of the shark ecology program examines behavior and habitat use at high resolution creating data sets that advance our understanding of sharks and are available for managers and the public. The foundation of the program sits on our investigations of white sharks in shallow water on Cape Cod and spatial-temporal investigations of elasmobranchs in both the United States and British Virgin Islands
The Research Assistant under the guidance of Shark Ecology Program Manager will assist in day-to-day operations and field work to collect data. The responsibilities of the Research Assistant will be to prepare, deploy, and maintain equipment and to aid in grant writing, data analysis, and program development under the guidance of the program manager.
