Opportunities for post-doctoral collaboration with Marine Academic Education in Iceland (MARICE)


We are actively seeking doctoral graduates who would be interested in collaboratively writing grants for a post-doctoral position with the MARICE group at the University of Iceland, under the supervision of Dr. Guðrún Marteinsdóttir. There is currently no post-doctoral funding available for these projects, but there are a variety of avenues by which individual post-doctoral grants or project grants can be obtained (see below). The focus of the research would be to expand or connect a variety of the on-going research projects currently underway, and could fall into a variety of topics, depending on the interests of the collaborator. These could include:


- Atlantic cod reproductive physiology and its relationship to lunar cycles
- Evolutionary modeling of Atlantic cod reproductive systems
- How does early life history relate to recruitment patterns via ocean circulation?
- Using ecological data to improve fish finding tools
- Spatial patterns in demersal trawl landings: when do fishermen stop fishing?
- Techniques for morphological identification of Atlantic cod stocks



Potential funding opportunities:

Location: MARICE, University of Iceland

The project will be carried out at MARICE, University of Iceland. MARICE is a diverse research group at the University of Iceland that focuses on a broad range of topics surrounding the local marine environment. These topics include behavior, physiology, population genetics, and life history variation of Atlantic cod, saithe, and haddock; modelling of oceanographic processes along Iceland’s coastline; and improving tools for fisheries management in Iceland and internationally. Both empirical and theoretical methods are used. The research group consists of 3 post-docs, 8 PhD students, and 3 Master’s students who work as a team to provide a stimulating research environment. The group is headed by Dr. Guðrún Marteinsdóttir and nestled within the Biology Department in the Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences.
