Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in the CHASE Project

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 Ocean Programme.

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. This position is 2 years fixed term, based at SAMS in Oban, UK.

For general enquiries about the position please contact Dr Kim Last. Further information about the CHASE project can be found here.
