This is a great opportunity for a candidate interested in developing a suite of integrated skills to work in marine science. MixITiN ESR6 will work between Swansea University (UK) and Station Biologique de Roscoff (Universite Pierre et Marie Curie; France) to enhance our understanding of the ecophysiology of a specific group of mixotrophic plankton that maintain symbiotic microalgae growing within themselves. These organisms play an important role in ecology (including harmful algal blooms), and also as indicators eutrophication and of climate change.

Vacancy for Postdoctoral Researcher

Documenting seaweed diversity and training in seaweed identification in the Falklands

Vacancy for Postdoctoral Researcher, Falklands Marine Forest Habitats

Salary: £32,825 per annum plus benefits

Location: London

Kelp forests provide spawning grounds for the Falklands squid fishery and are a major habitat for red listed cetaceans. However, they are potentially threatened by offshore oil exploration, invasive species and climate change. Falkland’s seaweeds are not well inventoried, yet this knowledge is critical for their Biodiversity Framework. The aim of the project is to provide tools to enable environmental management through habitat monitoring by filling a major gap in baseline knowledge of seaweed biodiversity, populating local information systems and providing training in species identification.

This will include at least one fieldtrip to the Falklands. There will also be opportunities for outreach initiatives. The project officer will also be responsible for the day to day management of the project.
