Postdoctoral fellowship is available in the project "Sustainable harvesting of marine resources" funded by the Research Council of Norway. The project is run as collaboration between Institute of Marine Research and University of Bergen, Norway. The project will investigate the effects of fisheries-induced evolution by a combination of theoretical life-history models, species-specific life-history models, and selection experiments. For more information on the project, see

The postdoctoral position is hosted by the Institute of Marine Research ( IMR is one of the largest marine research institutes in the world, focusing on both applied and fundamental research. The main office of IMR is located in Bergen, an attractive town with rich cultural and academic life, and with surroundings offering excellent opportunities for all sorts of outdoor pursuits.

The postdoctoral fellow, together with PhD student to be hired to the project at the university, will use mathematical modelling to investigate:
* effects of fishing on life history traits using energy allocation models for Atlantic cod, herring, and blue whiting,
* coupling between oceanographic circulation models and the dispersal of early life history stages, and
* the effects that differences in larval survival and growth at different spawning locations along the Norwegian coast may have on the evolution of age and size at maturation and length of the spawning migrations.

The postdoctoral position includes a 6-month visit to the Department of Biology at University of California, Riverside ( where the fellow has opportunity to work with professor David Reznick and professor Derek Roff.
The qualifications are a PhD degree in a relevant field and skills in life history theory, ecological and evolutionary modelling and an interest in fisheries.

The postdoctoral position is for 36 months. The salary follows the government scale (level 54, currently NOK 378,400/ year, or about 48,000 EUR/year). Female applicants are strongly encouraged to apply. Preferred starting date is in early autumn 2006. The review of applications will start August 18 and continue until the position is filled.
For more information, please contact Mikko Heino (, preferably via e-mail ([log in to unmask]). 

An application, consisting of an application letter, curriculum vitae and two references, should be sent to the Personnel Division, Institute of Marine Research, P.O. Box 1870 Nordnes, NO-5817 Bergen, Norway. Mark the application with the reference number 
"27-06". Please also submit an electronic copy of the application to Mikko Heino by email.
