For the Department of Biology and Ecology of Fishes of IGB in Berlin-Friedrichshagen we are inviting applications for the position of
with a starting date as soon as possible, but ideally no later than January, 1, 2021.
The position is in the working group of Prof. Dr. Robert Arlinghaus (www.ifishman.de) and is part of the transdisciplinary Boddenhecht project (www.boddenhecht-forschung.de), which studies the ecology and exploitation of Baltic Sea pike (Esox lucius) around Rügen.
The scientist will be integrated in a multidisciplinary team who jointly help developing management recommendations in cooperation with stakeholders, based on sound social-ecological science contributed by the team.
The scientist shall examine the spatial ecology, exploitation and metapopulation structure of northern pike in cooperation with other team members and external partners.
A core component of the work will be managing and analysing acoustic telemetry data on the movements of pike. A network of 140 receivers has already been installed in the lagoons of Rügen, and 300 pike have been equipped with transmitters, which are now producing data.
Depending on the interest of the candidate this core data set can be complemented by mark-recapture, growth, otolith microchemistry or population genetics data (the latter led by Prof. Dr. Arne Nolte at the University of Oldenburg) to better understand the spatial ecology of pike around Rügen from a meta-population perspective.
We offer an interesting position in an international and dynamic scientific environment whose aspiration is to develop research results that have practical implications for sustainable fisheries. Salary is paid according to the German salary scheme for the public sector (TVöD Bund). It is a full-time position with 39 working hoursper week and is then limited to 2 years. The position can also be filled as a part-time position at 66% and is then limited to 3 years, with the potential to write a PhD thesis.
