Job Opportunities:
Postdoctoral Researchers (temporary job)
Nagano University - Nagano, Japan

Nagano University is planning to seek two trained researchers to work with a team on a study about the population dynamics and fisheries management of Japanese eel (Project Head: Professor Hiroshi Hakoyama). The project is supported by the Fisheries Agency of Japan, and is going to last
for at least several years. The outcome of the project is expected to contribute to discussions at FAO, IUCN and CITES and policy design and implementation on the management of Japanese eel. Lab technicians (several people) are going to help the postdoctoral researchers.

Duties & Responsibilities:
(1) Postdoctoral Researcher #1 (Data Scientist/Bioinformatician,
population genetics, SNPs (MIG-seq and/or RAD), effective population
size, pairwise sequentially Markovian coalescent, PSMC) The researcher's
primary responsibilities include: developing the research design to get
information about SNPs (MIG-seq and/or RAD) and estimating the yearly
effective population size of Japanese eel; estimating demographic history
by the PSMC method; developing statistical and mathematical methods for
population genetics; and writing papers with co-workers.

(2) Postdoctoral Researcher #2 (Statistician, frequentist, time-series
analysis, fisheries management, mathematical modeling) The researcher's
primary responsibilities include: analyzing multivariate time-series
of fisheries and environmental data of Japanese eel in frequentist
approaches (not Bayesian); developing statistical and mathematical
methods for fisheries management; and writing papers with co-workers. The
spatiotemporal data include missing values.

Moreover, all postdoctoral researchers should cooperate with each other,
participate in team discussions, assist the members of the team and the
lab in all respects, and accept other duties as assigned.

Minimum education: Ph.D. in a related field

Applications: When applying for this position, please send a CV/cover

We already employed a postdoctoral Researcher who also contribute our team
(Pop-up Argos tag, experimental researcher, fieldworker: The researcher's
primary responsibilities include: conducting field experiments to track
silver eels using pop-up Argos tags (e.g., Wildlife Computer) at several
locations in Japan, Indonesia, and Philippines; conducting laboratory
experiments using yellow eels for developing the new pop-up Argos tag
cooperating with Little Leonardo Co).

Thank you.
