UNIS is seeking a Research fellow (PhD) in marine ecology -deadline 08.03.2018

The department of Arctic Biology at UNIS seeks candidates for a PhD position in marine ecology. As part of the Nansen Legacy, the PhD will be in the work package investigating how human activities influence the northern Barents Sea ecosystem. The project investigates the interactions between climate change and pollution in a highly seasonal marine ecosystem and combines knowledge from ecotoxicology, physiology, ecology, and evolution. The successful candidate will design and conduct extensive field studies, analyse dietary descriptors and individual body states, deal with datasets, and apply models.
