Dear Listmembers,

please spread the word among potential Ph.D. candidates for the following
position within an interdisciplinary and international project on
recreational fisheries:

Job Opening

Modelling the Population Dynamics of Human-Exploited Fish Populations

The Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) of
the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V., Department Biology and Ecology of Fishes,
in cooperation with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analyses
(IIASA) in Laxenburg (Austria) (PD. Dr. Ulf Dieckmann) invites applications
for the following position within the framework project "Adaptive Dynamics
and Management of coupled social-ecological recreational fisheries
(ADAPTFISH)" granted by the Pact for Research and Innovation of the
Leibniz-Society (WGL).

PhD student

Topic: This project aims at modelling and analysing the population dynamics
of angler-exploited freshwater fish stocks. The impacts of selective
recreational fishing mortality on yield, stock structure and salient
life-history traits shall be modelled depending on fisheries intensity,
varying regulations (e.g. size limits) and considering different population
parameters (e.g. growth rate). Moreover, eco-genetic models to analyse the
potential of recreational fishing to induce evolutionary changes are
expected to be constructed and analysed. The projects ultimately aims at
deriving recommendations for fisheries management and conservation.

Qualifications: M.Sc. degree in Natural Sciences such as Theoretical
Biology, Applied Mathematics, Fisheries Biology, Computer Sciences or
comparable degree with a focus on quantitative approaches to understand the
population dynamics of exploited animals; experiences with programming
(e.g., C ++) and mathematical software (e.g., Matlab) are explicitly
requested; experiences with quantitative population models or fish stock
assessment; good working knowledge of English; above average communication
skills and team spirit; ability to work independently; high motivation;
familiarity with recreational angling would be a benefit.

The position is open until filled. It is limited to three years and will be
paid according to TVöD (service class wage agreement, depending on age and
marital status roughly 25.000 € per year gross income, heath insurance
covered, the wage is equivalent to 0.5 the wage of a full time scientist).
It is anticipated that the successful candidate will split attendance
between residence at IGB and IIASA. Applications by females are particularly
encouraged. Disabled persons with identical qualifications will be favoured.

Please send your application, preferably by email, with the usual material
(expression of interest, CV, copies of certificates, if available
representative reprints of published work) including a short statement of
personal research aims and interests and a summary of the M.Sc. thesis
ideally not later than May 30, 2006 to:

Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
