The Institute of Marine Research (IMR) in Norway has an immediate opening for a 4 years Post Doctoral position in the research group for Demersal Fish. The principal areas of research for the current postdoc position in population modeling will be in development of the Management Strategy Evaluation tool, working with a dedicated programmer to link together a set of different models with varying complexity, and in developing and analyzing case studies to test the tool. Research topics will include developing the linkage between models, developing and analyzing management strategies, and analyzing the relative importance of different sources of uncertainty.
Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree involving modeling, for example via applied mathematics, applied statistics, fish population modeling, ecological modeling or a related quantitative field. Experience of fisheries modeling, and especially Management Strategy Evaluations, is an advantage but not a requirement.
