Postdoctoral Research Associate in Arctic Zooplankton Ecology
Oban, Scotland
Scottish Association for Marine Science
  • Postdoctoral Researcher

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to study the biology of Arctic zooplankton in response to climate change.

The CHASE project (Chronobiology of Changing Arctic Sea Ecosystem) is funded by the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is part of NERC’s Changing Arctic Oceans Program (CAO). The successful candidate will be joining a multi- national team with the task of better understanding the behaviour, physiology and gene responses of copepods and krill to changes in their environment with a focus on chronobiology. Work will involve manipulative experiments in the lab and aboard research ships and data processing from previous field campaigns.

The successful candidate should have a PhD in a relevant discipline. Large data-set handling would be considered a useful additional skill, as would practical seagoing expertise. For general enquiries about the position please contact: Dr Kim Last at Kim.Last "at", for further information see:
