The Employment Service was established in
1985 by the World Aquaculture Society to assist its membership and the
international aquaculture community with current job and career information.
The annual posting of jobs and CVs at WAS international and US Aquaculture Society (USAS) Chapter meetings,
and the online job and resume databases via the Internet serve as a
clearinghouse for employment opportunities and information. The job and CV databases are maintained throughout the year by the Employment Service
The WASES is provided at no cost to businesses, academic and other non-profit institutions, NGOs, state/federal agencies, employed professionals and students in support of the international aquaculture community. Besides aquaculture, other fields like fisheries, aquatic sciences and seafood are included along with graduate assistantships, post-docs, and internships. Listings for CVs are removed after 6 months and job announcements are open until the closing date you set on the submission form. Jobs and CVs are typically posted within 1-2 days after receiving them.
Please contact the Employment Service Coordinator with all your comments, questions and suggestions.
Thank you, John Ewart

The Department of Environmental Science & Policy (ESP) in the College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Davis is recruiting an Assistant Professor in sustainable aquaculture and coastal systems. This is an academic year (9-month), tenure-track Assistant Professor position, resident at Bodega Marine Laboratory (BML). Candidates must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in biological/physical/engineering sciences.
The appointee is expected to establish a competitively funded research program to address critical or emerging issues in aquaculture/mariculture as an integral component of coastal systems and sustainable food from the sea. The candidate will have conducted conceptually innovative research and may come from one of many different backgrounds, such as aquaculture, ecology or environmental science/engineering – with aquaculture as a component, but not necessarily the exclusive focus of their research program. As examples to illustrate the breadth of our search, prior work may have been on sustainable food systems, environmental management (mitigation of impacts), spatial planning, seascape ecology, systems modeling, coastal oceanography, aquaculture-environment interactions, trophic systems, water quality, disease ecology, integrative analysis, or data science. We envisage development of an innovative program that links the candidate’s research specialty with aquaculture systems science more broadly, including food production, environmental change, or socio-economic context. The successful candidate will have demonstrated individual excellence in research as well as the potential to draw a group of colleagues into integrative analyses of sustainable food from the sea that include coastal aquaculture.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach in undergraduate and graduate programs, and should be committed to mentoring and fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion. Teaching will include existing or new courses appropriate to the candidate’s area of expertise (e.g., ESP 10: Current Issues in the Environment; ESP 110: Principles of Environmental Science; a new course in sustainable seafood), with classes split between Bodega Marine Laboratory and the main campus in Davis, including remote teaching options. Undergraduate teaching will be in the Environmental Science and Management (ESM) and the Marine and Coastal Science (MCS) majors. Teaching assignments depend on departmental need and a typical load in the department is 2.5 courses per year. The successful candidate will also be active in graduate teaching and advising, participating in one or more graduate groups, including the pending Graduate Group in Marine Science, as well as the BML graduate-student community and the broader coastal/marine graduate-student community within the Coastal and Marine Sciences Institute (CMSI).
Participation in and development of public outreach and/or community engagement programs, and departmental and university service is also expected. As a catalyst for integrative aquaculture at UC Davis, the successful candidate will likely develop scholarly engagement with aquaculture practitioners and management agencies, Cooperative Extension specialists and advisors, and a variety of other coastal stakeholders.
