CSS is seeking a Coastal Ecosystems Modeler to join our team and support NOAA NCCOS Coastal Resilience, Restoration, and Assessment Lab, Beaufort, NC.   Overview - CSS seeks a PhD Level scientist to provide support for applied research projects at the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science laboratory (NCCOS) in Beaufort, NC. The NCCOS team conducts basic and applied research on the impact of environmental drivers on ecosystem response variables, including salt marsh primary production and species distribution, carbon burial and flux, sediment accretion and shoreline erosion. In addition, the research team uses this information to assess the resilience of coastal ecosystems through a variety of modeling approaches and for developing nature-based approaches to increase the resilience of coastal ecosystems and communities.   - The successful applicant will support the project titled “Keep it in the System: A decision tool for managers considering beneficial use of dredged sediment to increase resilience of coastal marshes and built infrastructure”. The project’s goal is to determine the best environmental assessment approach to inform the design and implementation of Natural and Nature-Based Features (NNBF) for enhanced coastal resilience, with a focus on beneficial use of dredged sediment. The project will be conducted in the coastal area around Beaufort, NC, and Jacksonville, FL. Specific project elements to be supported by the successful applicant include: - Evaluate existing models which predict marsh vulnerability/resilience to sea level rise and wave energy in siting NNBF in the proposed NC and FL locations (e.g. MEM, SLAMM, UVVR, TNC Resilient Coastal Sites South Atlantic). - Investigate incorporation of other models that characterize coastal hydrology and geomorphology for planning purposes (e.g. ADCIRC, GEOMBEST); - Refine and run models to analyze both protective (increased marsh resiliency to sea level rise and erosion) and non-protective (carbon sequestration) services of designed NNBF projects; - Work with Principal Investgators (PI), stakeholders and resource managers to develop guidance documents that describe the process to identify and implement sediment driven NNBF; and,  - Work with PI to develop manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
