Six new Postdoc Fellowships at the Australian Institute of Marine Science

The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is offering 3-year employment opportunities for six new Postdoctoral Fellows, to conduct applied and/or basic research in the following projects:

?      Genomic basis of environmental stress tolerance and resilience in corals

?      Drivers of recovery of coral populations and reefs after disturbance

?      Role of evolutionary rescue on coral reefs under current and future environmental scenarios

?      Effects of sediments on larval ecology of corals and sponges

?      Hyperspectral imagery for coral reefs and inter-reefal zones

?      Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) navigation in a coral reef environment (in partnership with university collaborators, 2 positions)

AIMS postdoctoral fellows receive extensive support, funding and mentoring. AIMS offers competitive employment conditions, has world-class facilities (SeaSim and two research vessels), we have coral reefs on our door step (well, it’s kind of a big step…), and most of us are embedded in strong national and international collaborations.

Early career researchers from all Nations are eligible to apply for these positions.

Please send any inquiries directly to those listed for each of the projects/positions.

As previously mentioned, AIMS is presently also calling 7 other new marine jobs, as well as a for systems developer position:

Coastal Biogeochemical Modeller

?  Lead the development and application of biogeochemical models to provide scientific advice on managing regional and global pressures on tropical marine ecosystems.

Ecological Risk Modeller

?  Analyse complex spatial and time-series data to predict how tropical marine organisms and ecosystems respond to multiple pressures from a rapidly changing environment.
Ecosystem Modeller – Cumulative Impacts

?  Lead and conduct quantitative environmental research to identify drivers of resilience and vulnerability in tropical marine ecosystems.
Research Scientist – Benthic (Coral Reef) Ecology

?  Advance AIMS’ world-leading coral reef research and monitoring programs.

Research Scientist – Fish Population Ecology

?  Advance research on ecology and diversity of tropical demersal fish through analysis and application of new and existing approaches.
Systems Developer

?  software developer with experience in developing cloud-based interactive systems in Java, Javascript, HTML5 and CSS, experience in deploying and maintaining Linux-based servers (in-house and/or cloud based).
