A 2-YEAR POSITION as Post doctoral researcher, on the international implications of variability in the North-Atlantic pelagic fish stock complex and sensible policies do deal with them, is available at the Institute of Economic Studies within the Faculty of Economics at the University of Iceland, Reykjavik Iceland.
Objective: To describe and analyze the international game situation concerning the North-Atlantic pelagic stock complex (NAPSC). This stock complex is composed of highly migratory individual species moving between national Exclusive Economic Zones and seasonally entering international waters. Hence, any change in the location, size and migration patterns will have international implications. The successful candidate will study (1) the pay-offs involved and possible threats outside the fishery; (2) model the international game, a dynamic bargaining game with various threats and possibilities of new entrants; (3) assess the outcomes and loss in economic benefits under variety of international agreements; (4) propose negotiating framework that increases the likelihood and robustness of an overall beneficial solution, i.e., adaptation to climate change.
Applicants for this position are requested to submit a research proposal that explains how they propose to deal with these issues.
Mobility is encouraged across the different GreenMAR nodes, and this particular case will entail spending part of the time in Oslo and at Princeton University.
Deadline for application: December 19th 2014
