PhD Scholarship in Marine Ecology and Climate at DTU Aqua

Deadline: 30 March 2011

A PhD Scholarship in Marine Ecology and Climate is available at the National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua) with starting date August 2011. The position is financed by the Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change (NorMER).

The project will primarily be carried out in the Section for Ocean Ecology and Climate which is situated in Charlottenlund, Denmark, in collaboration with the University of Bergen. DTU Aqua is an institute at the Technical University of Denmark.

The purpose of DTU Aqua is to provide research, advice and education at the highest international level within the sustainable exploitation of living marine and freshwater resources, the biology of aquatic organisms and the development of ecosystems as well as their integration in ecosystem-based management. The institute has an international research staff comprising approx. 90 academic employees.

Project description
The project will investigate how climatically driven variations of the phytoplankton spring bloom dynamics influence the zooplankton and fish recruitment in north Atlantic marine ecosystems. It is hypothesized that bloom characteristics depend on climatic and oceanographic conditions, and that the species composition will vary during the bloom’s seasonal progression within a given region. Timing, magnitude, duration and major species composition of the spring bloom in different years will be estimated and documented using satellite imagery. It is further hypothesized that the phytoplankton species composition will influence the extent to which primary production is consumed within the water column by zooplankton, or settles to the benthos for decomposition and consumption by the benthic community. As a consequence, differences in zooplankton biomass and potential larval fish survival and fish recruitment may depend on responses of different phytoplankton species groups to climatic and hydrographic forcing. These hypotheses will be investigated using remote sensing and zooplankton and fish data for different regions in the North Atlantic where field data for zooplankton and fish recruitment data are available. The regions will include waters near Iceland, Barents Sea, west Greenland and Faro Islands.

Qualifications
We are looking for a candidate who has:

  • Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree, or equivalent
  • Previous experience in marine, aquatic or ecological research
  • Proficiency in written and spoken English
