The Department of Biology of the University of Bergen has a vacancy for an Associate Professor in Marine Ecosystem Dynamics. The position is affiliated with the Hjort Centre for Marine Ecosystem Dynamics.
The Hjort Centre will conduct cross-disciplinary research of natural and human-induced changes in the ocean with the aim of increasing the sustainable harvest of marine living resources. This calls for basic understanding of evolution and ecology, processes in the ocean, effects of harvesting on fish populations and marine ecosystems.
We seek an active researcher in ecological and/or evolutionary modelling directed towards core research areas of the Hjort Centre (e.g. marine ecosystem, recruitment processes, effects of harvesting, population dynamics, behavior and life histories in fish and plankton).
When assessing the applicants, emphasis will be given to experience in management of research projects, coordinating research activities and strategic research planning. A proven will and the ability to work and communicate well with others will also be emphasized.
Closing date for applications: 1 June 2014
