Doctorado en Noruega estudiando el efecto del cambio climático en comunidades de peces

 

 Oferta compartida por Daniel Fernández en el Biogrupo

The positions will be part of CHIPOLATA, an international project aiming at a better understanding of the resilience of Lake Tanganyika’s pelagic fish stocks to potential climate change and harvesting impacts over the past 30 years. We are looking for candidates with strong interest and experience in one or more of the project themes, including foodweb ecology, climate/fisheries-induced evolution, and fisheries biology. The successful candidates will study changes in feeding habits, trophic position, trophic morphology, growth trajectories and population genetic structure over time to develop indicators for the resilience of three important fisheries targets: the freshwater sardines Stolothrissa miodon and Limnothrissa tanganicae, and the latid perch Lates stappersii. This will provide crucial insight into the ecological and evolutionary stability of the pelagic fish community. The candidates will also participate in field surveys at Lake Tanganyika, in close collaboration with local scientists and the project coordinator.

The successful applicants will be part of an international team of researchers across Europe, Africa and the USA, connected by a common interest in Lake Tanganyika and enthusiasm for discussion, creativity and diversity in research. Throughout the project, we will collaborate with local researchers, fishermen and authorities to collect fish, analyze the data, and discuss how our findings can improve fisheries management in Lake Tanganyika and elsewhere.

The positions are located at campus Bodø. The positions involve a few research stays of two to four weeks with project collaborators in DR Congo, Zambia or the USA.

Main tasks and responsibilities

  • Planning of and participation in fieldwork
  • Processing samples for next-generation sequencing, metabarcoding, analysis of trophic morphology, and analysis of growth trajectories
  • Bioinformatic and statistical analyses
  • Writing of high-impact research articles
  • Participation in scientific conferences and outreach events

    Qualification requirements

    Required selection criteria:

    • At the time of taking up the appointment, the candidate must have an MSc degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline such as molecular ecology, evolutionary biology, (aquatic) ecology or fish biology
    • Documented enthusiasm for ecological and evolutionary research questions
    • Documented experience in one of the topics linked to the project, such as foodweb ecology, the study of climate/fisheries-induced evolution or population responses to other types of anthropogenic environmental change, and fisheries biology
    • Documented experience in the analysis of biological samples and in some of the methods that are relevant for the project, such as in population genomics (including bioinformatics), metabarcoding, morphometrics, the analysis of diet data, or the analysis of growth trajectories
    • Documented experience in statistical analysis and the R language
    • Documented experience in biological fieldwork
    • Documented ability to work independently as well as in a team
    • Good oral and written communication skills in English

    Preferred selection criteria:

    • Documented experience in the coordination of biological fieldwork
    • Documented experience of fieldwork in the tropics/Africa
    • Documented experience in collaborative research projects, preferably of an international nature
    • Good oral and written communication skills in French

Doctorado en Finlandia estudiando las comunidades de plancton

 

Oferta compartida por Daniel Fernández en el Biogrupo

The Lammi Biological Station at the University of Helsinki is excited to announce an opening for a PhD researcher to join the newly formed group of Dr. Caio Graco-Roza.


Research Description:

The group focuses on studying planktonic communities and their responses to natural and anthropogenic factors both in the Lammi area but also worldwide. Planktonic communities are fundamental to the food chain, encompassing multiple taxa crucial for water quality management and ecosystem services. Their short lifespan and high demographic rates make them powerful ecological indicators.


The current project aims to understand the primary sources of diffuse pollution in the intensively monitored pilot catchment and the impact of diffuse pollution to plankton biodiversity. Collaborating with members of the “Watershed Safety Plan”-Project (WSSP), the successful applicant will contribute to developing catchment-level water protection solutions at the Baltic level.


The project employs both observational and experimental data collection methods. Observational data, gathered through source-track campaigns across the entire catchment, will inform a hydrological model for the pilot catchment. Given the area's predominant agricultural activities, the candidate will design experiments to assess the effects of various agricultural practices on aquatic biodiversity, particularly within the planktonic food web. The project uniquely integrates hydrological catchment models with experimental approaches to anticipate the large-scale impacts of anthropogenic activities on biodiversity. All necessary infrastructure and materials for experimentation are provided.

 

About You:

 

  • Ambitious, goal-oriented, collegial, and motivated to tackle challenging projects.
  • Hold or be near completion of an MSc degree in biology, ecology, geography, or a related field.
  • Prior experience in field sampling, with knowledge of water quality sampling considered advantageous.
  • Proficiency in statistical analytical tools such as R, Python, SPSS, or SigmaPlot.
  • Strong interest in experimental studies.
  • Good command of English. Finnish profficiency is considered an asset.
  • Strong communication, interpersonal, organizational, and time management skills.

 

Project Description:

 

The doctoral researcher will be the local coordinator of International Central Baltic Interreg-funded “Watershed Safety Plan”-Project (WSSP) focusing on developing catchment-level water protection solutions. In addition to thesis work, the PhD candidate will be responsible for the progress of the project locally. Project tasks include processing and analyzing long-term catchment data, contributing to the validation, development, and testing of hydrological catchment loading models. Data from experiments will facilitate extrapolation of results to identify areas in the catchment vulnerable to biodiversity loss.

 

Project Assignments:

 

  • Local tasks related to project coordination, management and communication.
  • Partner-level reporting of project activities and the financial implementation to the funder (To be done twice a year)
  • Compilation of data from the pilot catchment area for use by project partners in modeling implementation.
  • Implementation of load-reducing water protection solutions, such as landing basin restoration.
  • Participating to international project events and meetings
  • Depending on suitability, involvement in Pääjärvi load survey-related research, potentially extending employment by 1-2 months.

 

What We Offer:

 

  • Project funding for approximately 22 months (2.9.2024 - 30.6.2026) with a competitive monthly salary ranging from 2560€ to 3,390€.
  • Scientific support from research staff and administrative assistance from the station.
  • A dynamic international workplace.
  • Affordable accommodation options within the Lammi Biological Station.
  • Negotiable remote work arrangements during specific periods.

 

Additional information on the position is provided by University Researcher Caio Roza (caio.roza@helsinki.fi).
