PhD in development of a Fish Finding Tool based on ecological data
PhD in Atlantic cod reproductive biology and physiology
Post-doc collaborations in marine ecology and fisheries
The MARICE research group at the University of Iceland is recruiting 2 PhD positions. We are also looking for interested post-doctoral researchers who would be interested in collaboratively writing grants to fund a post-doctoral position.
The first PhD position focuses on the development of a "Fish Finding Tool" where high catch area of target species (cod, capelin, herring and mackerel) will be identified by linking physical features of the ocean with prior knowledge on behaviour of fish and their responses to environmental variables. Applications due 20. April, start date soon thereafter.
The second PhD position focuses on confirming recent observations derived from electronic data store tags of cyclical spawning behaviour associated with a semi-lunar cycle in Atlantic cod to assess both its adaptive significance and potential effects on cod mating systems. Start date: 1. September 2012.
The post-doctoral collaboration may focus on a variety of topics that link on-going projects in the MARICE lab, including (but not limited to) the following. Grant deadlines begin roughly in June 2012.
- Atlantic cod reproductive physiology
- Evolutionary modeling
- Marine fish early life history and recruitment patterns
- Spatial patterns in demersal trawl landings
- Morphological identification of Atlantic cod stocks
