Post Doc position, alternatively PhD, in marine ecology (Mrk. 21-14)

At the Institute of Marine Research we are seeking a person to be employed
in a Post Doc position, alternatively a PhD candidate, to work on
application of stabile isotopes (C, N) in studies of food webs in the
Barents Sea and the Arctic Ocean. The position is for three years and is
placed in the ‘Ecosystem Processes’ research group at IMR with work place
in Tromsø. If there are no qualified applicants for the position as a Post
Doc, we will consider employing a PhD candidate within the same field of

The position is within two strategic projects at IMR - ”The Arctic Ocean
Ecosystem” (SI_Arctic) and ”Trophic interactions in the Barents Sea - steps
towards an Integrated Ecosystem Assessment” (TIBIA). The aim of the
position is to contribute to improved description and understanding of the
food webs, trophic interactions and pelagic-benthic couplings in our
northern marine ecosystems.

For the Post Doc position we are seeking a person with PhD in marine
ecology and experience in the use of stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes in
studies of food webs. The work will include sampling and analysis of
stabile isotopes from key species of the food web along a gradient from the
southern boreal to the northern Arctic parts of the Barents Sea ecosystem
and adjacent areas of the Arctic Ocean.

Alternatively (if there are no qualified candidates for the Post Doc
position) we are offering a PhD position for a person with relevant
scientific background and interest in specializing in application of
stabile isotopes in marine food studies.

The successful applicant will work in broad research teams in the two
projects which include international partners. In the case of a PhD the
candidate must fulfill the requirements for acceptance at the University of
Tromsø. The position requires participation in cruises and field work in
the context of the two strategic projects.
We offer
• a challenging and creative working environment
• work at a national institute with extensive international contacts
• a good working environment
• flexible working hours, good pensions and welfare schemes

The position as post doctor or PhD candidate is paid in accordance with the
civil service pay scale.
