Iferemer's Laboratory of Environmental Marine Science (LEMAR) is offering a PhD position on the effects of Omega 3 depletion on marine fish. This project will use newly-developed methods in laboratory experiments to test the effect of reduction in EFA and climate warming on two levels of the food chain, primary (Golden grey mullet Liza aurata) and secondary consumers (European sea bass Dicentrachus labrax).

An ideal candidate for this position is expected to have experience in animal physiology or biochemistry at the MSc levels, willingness to learn diverse laboratory and animal handling methods, strong time management and communication skills; and an ability to work independently and in a team. A prior experience working with fish or measuring mitochondrial metabolism or analysing lipids would be an asset but is not required.
