The Institute of Aquaculture (IoA), Faculty of Natural Sciences is offering a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (PDRF) position to work on the environmental modelling of catchments and Scottish freshwater loch systems. The position will play a pivotal role and take the lead on delivering the research outcomes of the Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) funded project “Freshwater aquaculture in a changing world”.
This research project is centred on investigating water movement within freshwater loch systems as well as water flow and runoff from the wider catchment, and the implications for aquaculture planning and management. This project brings together a unique and significant freshwater aquaculture partnership from industry (Mowi Scotland, Dawnfresh Seafoods), environmental regulators (Scottish Environment Protection Agency, SEPA), aquaculture certifiers (Aquaculture Stewardship Council, ASC) and research organisations (University of Stirling and the Norwegian Institute for Water Research, NIVA) to assess and improve freshwater management tools to optimize environmental management and disease control.
