2015_10: Open Positions at University of Bergen, Norway: Two PhDs for Modelling Climate Change Effects

Two PhDs (3 years each) to model effects of climate change on fish life histories. The positions are part of the EU training network MARmaED (http://marmaed.eu). Application deadline is 18 October 2015.


PhD project A: How may climate-driven evolution of fish life histories and behaviours interact with effects of fishing?

PhD project B: With climate warming, species are expected to move northwards, but what happens when they approach high latitudes with increasing seasonality and even a long polar night?

The PhD positions will be part of the EU training network MARmaED, with 8 partner institutions across Europe. Because the positions are EU-funded, special mobility requirements apply:
– you cannot have been resident in Norway (the host country) for more than 12 months in total during the last 36 months prior to starting date of the PhD position, and
– you are ineligible if your research experience (beyond the MSc degree) exceeds 4 years.

PhD supervisors will be Christian Jørgensen (email: christian.jorgensen@uib.no, web: http://bio.uib.no/te/cj) and Øyvind Fiksen (email: oyvind.fiksen@uib.no, web: http://bio.uib.no/te/of). The workplace will be the Theoretical Ecology Group at the University of Bergen. Application deadline is 18 October 2015 and we hope the candidate can start by January 2016.
