Postdoctoral position in evolutionary ecology at the French Institute of 
Research for the Exploitation of the Sea (IFREMER), Port-en-Bessin, France

A postdoctoral position is available at IFREMER, France. The successful 
applicant will be expected to investigate exploitation-induced adaptive 
changes in the French population of Pacific oysters located in the 
Marennes-Oléron Bay. This research project is intended to combine 
statistical analyses on 25 years of data showing monotonic phenotypic 
trends in growth, reproductive effort and spawning timing, together with 
the development of an eco-genetic model parameterized for this species 
in order to understand the processes responsible for the observed trends 
and investigate alternative management strategies aiming at reducing or 
reversing them (

The post is funded by the EU Marie Curie Research Training Network 
FishACE, Fisheries-induced Adaptive Change in Exploited Stocks 
( The FishACE network is 
set up to investigate the prevalence and consequences of 
fisheries-induced adaptive changes in exploited aquatic systems in 
European waters. The network is coordinated by the International 
Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Laxenburg, Austria. There are 
altogether 11 network teams in 8 European countries. Besides training 
through research, the network provides international exchanges and 
workshops, as well as tailored training courses on relevant methods and 

Applicants should have a PhD and a strong background in statistical 
analysis, life history theory, ecological and evolutionary modelling. An 
interest in fisheries and aquaculture would also be an advantage. 
According to fellowship rules, applicants must be of non-French 
nationality and must not have resided in France for more than 12 months 
in the last three years 
(; notice 
that French citizens and residents can apply for positions in other 
teams in this network). The work will be conducted together with both 
the Fisheries Department (Port-en-Bessin, France; and the Genetics 
and Pathology Laboratory (La Tremblade, France; of IFREMER, 
although the successful applicant will be officially hosted by the 
former. Collaboration with several other teams in the network is 
foreseen, facilitated by research visits. The position is initially for 
12 months, with a possibility of extension up to 26 months. The salary, 
which include travel and mobility allowances, follows the Marie Curie 
rates prescribed by the EU and is very competitive.

The French Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea 
( is a national research institute affiliated 
with the Ministry of Education, Research and Technologies, the Ministry 
of Agriculture and Fisheries, the Ministry of Environment and 
Sustainable Development, and the Ministry of Equipment, Transport, and 
Housing. The Institute conducts research in all fields of marine science 
among which fisheries and aquaculture sciences and the management of 
marine living resources. The Institute has about 1700 employees located 
in 24 marine stations distributed along the French coastline. The 
Fisheries Department in Port-en-Bessin is part of a marine station 
located on the coast of the English Channel at 30 km from Caen, 
Normandy, France. It consists of about 35 persons among whom 15 senior 
researchers and 15 technicians in marine and fisheries science. Normandy 
is one of the most renowned regions in France for its food and its 
surroundings, which offer numerous opportunities for outdoor activities 
both on the seaside and inland. Caen is a lively town with rich cultural 
life located only 2 hours away from Paris by train or car.
