Research at the department revolves around three themes, i) Climate change biology, ii) Seasonal ecology, and iii) Spatio-temporal dynamics of species and systems (Arctic Biology Research - UNIS).
UNIS has well equipped lab facilities including a state-of-the-art molecular lab, a primary production lab and cold labs for experimental work. UNIS has access to various autonomous platforms, owns a small research boat to conduct fjord investigations and a remote field station close to a seasonally ice-covered fjord.
Applicants must have:
- PhD degree in marine biology, marine ecology or another relevant field
- Research and fieldwork experiences from Arctic or high-latitude marine ecosystems
- Experience in field- and/or lab-based methods and approaches
- Motivation and vision to develop research within the Arctic Biology department as well as across UNIS departments
- Experience with novel methodology to study physical-biological interactions
- Competence in experimental approaches to study adaptations and physiological responses
- Competence in molecular techniques
- Experience with analyses, publication and archiving of large data sets, particularly with time-series or spatial data
- Well established national and international network in Arctic marine research
- Experience in developing teaching methodologies with special attention to field-based teaching
