University of Nantes, France
Deadline: Feb 28, 2017
We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher with experience in ocean colour remote sensing to join the European H2020 funded project TAPAS (Tools for Assessment and Planning of Aquaculture Sustainability). The TAPAS project (http://tapas-h2020.eu/), led by the University of Stirling (UoS), will create cost-efficient management tools and practices for the European aquaculture sector to investigate the limits to fish and shellfish farming activities in location, social interactions, potential environmental impacts and any future risks.
- The candidate should have a solid background and a good publications record in at least one of the following fields: marine optics, ocean colour remote sensing, numerical ecology, shellfish ecophysiology, and coastal oceanography.
- Large datasets from RS and ERSEM will be coupled with shellfish models, and the candidate should show a keen interest and demonstrate efficiency in the processing, analysis and interpretation of large-scale environmental and biological time-series data.
- Experience in the processing and interpretation of satellite data is required.
