Professor in Ecology of Marine Fishes

Technical University of Denmark - DTU Aqua

Location: Lyngby - Denmark
Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 30th November 2021
Closes: 24th January 2022

DTU invites applications for a position as leading professor in Ecology of Marine Fishes. The professorship is affiliated with the National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua), Section for Marine Living Resources, and is based at DTU campus in Kgs. Lyngby, but with activities at other locations of the Institute. 

The professor is expected to head the Section for Marine Living Resources or a larger research unit within the section, by implementing strategic management of academic, human and other resources to optimize bridging of excellent science with societal demands for sustainable exploitation and scientific advice on the management of marine living resources.

The scientific focus of the professorship lies on investigating individual biological characteristics relating to understanding mechanisms and quantifying population dynamics under heterogeneous and changing environmental conditions. 

Responsibilities and qualifications

Employment requires innovative research at a high international level within relevant research themes and a track record in research leadership, including visionary strategic development, leading a multidisciplinary research group, and planning, funding, implementing, as well as running interdisciplinary research projects. 

Required is a track record in attracting external research funding from national and international foundations, coordination of national and international initiatives within the research field and contribution to teaching in a university whose goal is to offer Europe’s best engineering education.

Apart from the leadership function, the responsibilities include inspiring and developing the high international standard of research conducted by DTU Aqua and strengthening the central position of the research in the institute, translating basic scientific findings from experimental and field studies into assessment of marine living resources and their management. 

This requires a track record in research, addressing the ecology of fishes, from individual to population level at different spatial and temporal scales. The research field and working area will include a combination of, but not necessarily all of the following aspects: 

  • Physiological, nutritional, and behavioural ecology in relation to environmental conditions and predator/prey interactions based on bio-physical and chemical monitoring as well as dedicated field and lab studies.
  • Resolving biological processes in marine fish using innovative technology, e.g. molecular, chemical and physiological approaches as well as modern observation technology.
  • Life history characterization and description of fitness optimization at individual and/or population level.
  • Estimating key population dynamic rates, e.g. growth, mortality as well as reproductive investment and success based on research surveys and experimental studies applying above listed approaches.
  • Operationalizing of process-information and -models with implementation in population dynamic models, fish stock assessments and stock predictions. 

The vision and suggested work programme should include a quantitative approach to linkages between individual mechanisms, marine population dynamics, and variation in environmental and climatic conditions, as well as species interactions and exploitation.

Results should be disseminated in peer-reviewed publications and dedicated outlets aiming to inform management authorities, stakeholders and the public at large and foster national and international collaboration.
