Our Culture

The Sustainable Fisheries Group supports a culture of research excellence and professional growth. We foster a collaborative work environment to bring interdisciplinary expertise to solve critical ocean problems.

We want our team members to succeed, both here and in their future, and we actively encourage continuous learning. We cultivate a deep respect for our partners, who put our science into action and illuminate new and interesting research questions for us to work on.

We work hard and play hard. We are scientists, divers, surfers, runners, modelers, under-water rugby players, and problem solvers.

The sunshine and sparkling waves of the Central California coast are on our doorstep, but as part of the academic community at the University of California, Santa Barbara, we are serious about rigorous science and innovative solutions to address problems facing our oceans and the people who depend on them.

SFG offers a flexible, project-centric workplace, but expects a great deal of initiative and accountability from everyone.

We are a team of intellectual go-getters: eager to tackle new challenges and think outside the box to support healthy and productive oceans that can sustain generations to come.

If we sound like a team you would thrive in, please check back often for new job openings. Look forward to hearing from you!
