PhD Scholarship in Marine Larval Hatchery Technology Microbial Management and Immune System Ontogeny in European Eel

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position in conservation biology at Technical University of Denmark. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 3 years. This position is closed on October 10, 2019.

A PhD Scholarship in marine larval culture technology is available at the National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua) with starting date 1st December 2019. Focus is on the role of microbial management and immune system ontogeny in European eel larval culture as an example of marine larval hatchery development for recirculating aquaculture systems.

The scholarship is part of a newly established "Joint PhD degree" between the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The PhD will be affiliated to the Fish Biology Research Group at DTU and the Department of Biotechnology and Food Science at NTNU. The project will be carried out at DTU (two years) and NTNU (one year) as a collaborative, integrated research initiative. The PhD degree will be fully joint degrees from both universities.

in the areas of technical and natural sciences. DTU Aqua conducts research, educates, provides advice, and contributes to innovation in sustainable exploitation and management of aquatic resources. The institute is characterised by international research staff, comprising approx. 120 academic employees, organised in fourteen research areas. Key research areas include biology and population ecology of aquatic organisms, ecosystem structure and dynamics, aquatic physics and chemical processes, and fisheries and aquaculture technology development. The fish biology research area focuses on generating new knowledge on developmental characteristics and physiological requirements of fish throughout their life history, thereby providing insights into population dynamics and ecosystem functioning as well as assisting conservation biology and aquaculture innovation.

NTNU is the largest university in Norway and the main university of education within the technology domain. It has Oceans and Biotechnology as two of its six strategic research areas. The Department of Biotechnology and Food Science has about 90 employees, teaches at all levels and is organised in four research groups. The "Analysis and Control of Microbial Systems" group focuses on providing services from microbial communities in a variety of systems, including wastewater, biogas and aquaculture systems. The group has been a pioneer in research related to microbe-fish interactions and microbial management in rearing of marine fish larvae.

The research of the PhD relates to the multidisciplinary research project: Improve technology and scale-up production of offspring for European eel aquaculture (ITS-EEL) . Here, the main goal is to breed eels, develop larval culture technology and establish a captive production of glass eels for a closed cycle production of this species. The project is performed in collaboration with industry and international scientific collaborators.

The project work is multidisciplinary and experimental, where practical tasks are performed as teamwork in collaboration with partners. The specific objective of the PhD project is to substantiate our knowledge about the impact of host-microbe and microbe-microbe interaction on offspring ontogeny, immunology and survivorship in culture of marine larval fish. Applying European eel as a model, it utilises the complementing expertise of the two research groups to optimise the research project. The PhD study that includes experimental research and laboratory analyses is tentatively organised into four tasks. 1) Microbial water quality and offspring stocking density affect microbiome composition and larval health, 2) Larval microbiome shift and immune system ontogeny and functionality in relation to bacterial infection, 3) Gut-priming and immuno-stimulation drive microbiome composition, immune system development and feeding success, 4) Community assembly and succession of the microbiome in eel larvae.

PhD Scholarship in Fisheries Technology/engineering

A PhD scholarship in mechanical engineering is available at Technical University of Denmark. The initial contract for this position is 3 years. Applications should be sent before October 07, 2019.

A PhD Scholarship in Fisheries Technology is available at the National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua) in collaboration with DTU Mechanical Engineering and with a starting date of December 2019.

The project will be carried out in the Fisheries Technology research group situated in Hirtshals, Denmark. The Fishing Technology Group is part of the Section for Ecosystem based Marine Management of DTU Aqua, which is an institute at the Technical University of Denmark.

The purpose of DTU Aqua is to provide research, advice and education at the highest international level within the sustainable exploitation of living marine and freshwater resources, the biology of aquatic organisms and the

development of ecosystems as well as their integration in ecosystem-based management. The institute has

Towed fishing gears are responsible for a large proportion of global landed catch. These gears, however, can be unselective and often catch non-targeted species, which are then, either discarded at sea or brought ashore for low economic return.

To ensure that these fisheries are both economically and environmentally sustainable there is a need to develop and design fishing gears that can select fish by size and species. The hydrodynamics of the flow through and around fishing gears plays a large role in determining what they catch. It determines the geometry of a fishing gear and the extent to which the netting meshes open, and it influences the swimming performance of fish and their location in and their passage through a gear.

This project will investigate the hydrodynamic processes involved with towing a fishing gear. The research will comprise (i) computational fluid dynamics (CFD) (ii) scaled laboratory experiments, to develop a thorough understanding of the fundamental processes and (iii) field trials at sea. The CFD work will be carried out using OpenFoam, a leading open source code. The laboratory experiments will be carried out at the DTU Mechanical Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory and the sea trials will be carried out on board research and/or commercial fishing vessels.

The specific contents of the project will be formulated in cooperation with the successful candidate reflecting the candidate's qualifications, and taking into account externally funded projects and ongoing activities. The candidate will join an active, international and cross-disciplinary research team and there may also be the opportunity to collaborate with the fishing and fishing gear industries. The main supervisor will be Barry O'Neill, DTU Aqua, with co-supervision from David Fuhrman and Stefan Carstensen of DTU Mechanical Engineering.

This project will help develop a systematic approach to using hydrodynamics to design and optimise the selectivity of commercial fishing gears. Thus, it will permit the development of gears that will exploit marine biological resources in an economically viable and biologically sustainable way.

The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the .

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is delighted to offer a postdoctoral position. There is no application deadline for this position.

The Forest Use, Energy and Livelihoods (FUEL) Lab at the University Michigan/University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill announces one postdoctoral research opportunity, beginning January 2020 for work on an interdisciplinary team focusing on energy access and human well-being in low and middle-income countries. The postdoc will support the National Science Foundation funded Energy Poverty PIRE in Southern Africa https://eppsa.cpc.unc.edu/ (EPPSA), a program of work focused on understanding the dynamics of energy transitions and evaluating interventions that seek to mitigate energy poverty through use of incentives, technology or both. Interventions occur at a variety of scales (national to local) and include strategies to improve access to electricity and clean cooking. Focal countries are Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. EPPSA has two thematic focuses (1) Population and Environment Dynamics of Energy Poverty and (2) Technology and/or Incentives for Mitigating Energy Poverty. The outcomes studied in this interdisciplinary program include socioeconomic impacts (time use, expenditures, and poverty), deforestation, particulate matter emissions and exposure, health impacts of energy transitions, and interventions to mitigate energy poverty. The postdoc will be engaged in building and analyzing study datasets by integrating Living Standards Measurement Study, Demographic and Health Survey data, and other population representative data with satellite-derived land cover-land use and other spatial and environmental data, and using the data to analyze the state of energy poverty, energy transitions, and their implications (Theme 1). Responsibilities also include engagement in impact evaluation study design, survey instrument development, and managing field teams conducting quasi-experimental evaluations of interventions in collaboration with our African partners (Theme 2). The position will also support PIRE PIs in managing the training program and fieldwork for graduate and undergraduate students from UNC-CH, NCSU and the University of Michigan. The position is based in Ann Arbor at The University of Michigan, a leader in undergraduate and graduate education and one of the world's premiere research universities, offering rigorous academic programs, outstanding faculty, and diverse cultural and social opportunities in a stimulating intellectual environment. The School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) is a diverse collection of natural scientists, social scientists, engineers, and designers working collectively in an integrative setting at the University of Michigan. SEAS' mission is to contribute to the protection of the Earth's resources and the achievement of a sustainable society. The incumbent in this position would work with faculty and staff who are members of the Forest Use, Energy and Livelihoods Research Group within SEAS.

Research Assistant at Imperial College London

Imperial College London has an opening postdoctoral position in molecular biology. Applications are invited up to October 17, 2019.

Dr Male's research group focuses on how innate lymphoid cells are involved in the success of pregnancy. A position for a Research Assistant jointly funded by the Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust, is available immediately and is funded until 13th of September 2020 in the first instance with the possibility for extension dependent on funding.

The lining of the uterus is home to a number of unique immune cell populations, which are thought to play a role in the implantation of the placenta and subsequently in the success of pregnancy. Dr Male has recently discovered a novel strain of mouse, which lacks some of these cells and has difficulty in reproducing. The post holder will investigate the immune and reproductive phenotype of this strain of mouse in detail.

You will be expected to perform high quality research under the direction of Dr Male, and to assist in the day-today running of the laboratory. You will have a BSc (or equivalent) in cell biology, immunology or a related subject, and laboratory experience in molecular biology and mammalian cell culture. Possession of a personal Home Office licence is advantageous, but not required. You will be organised, able to communicate effectively and work closely with Dr Male and other members of the team.

You should have a good first degree in Cell Biology, Immunology or a related subject and/or equivalent. Laboratory experience in molecular biology and mammalian cell culture is required.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published.For more information, seehttps://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-evaluation/

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research/
