Dos oportunidades de empleo internacional

Las dos oportunidades de empleo son:

1) In brief, the Link Foundation is offering $25,000, 1-year Ph.D. fellowships
to support research related to the areas of ocean engineering and ocean
instrumentation. The fellowships are tenable at any university in the US and
Canada and do not have any restrictions on citizenship. Further information
and an application form can be found at www.linkoe.org.

2) The Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB, www.igb-berlin.de) is the principal German research centre for limnological and inland fisheries biological research. It unites hydrologists, chemists, microbiologists, fish ecologists, fisheries biologists, theoretical biologists and
social scientists to study freshwater ecology and inland fisheries from a holistic systems perspective.

The Inland Fisheries Management Laboratory at Humboldt-University of Berlin (Germany) and the Inter- and Transdisciplinary Young Investigator Group Besatzfisch (Stocked Fish Project) (www.besatz-fisch.de, see also www.adaptfish.igb-berlin.de) in the Department of Biology and Ecology of Fishes at IGB invite applications for a two-year position (starting date January, 1, 2012) as PostDoc/Scientist − Modelling Fisheries As
Coupled Social-Ecological System

Topic: Developing integrative, process-based simulation models of human-nature interactions exemplified by German recreational fisheries. Models shall focus on analysing the social, economic and biological impacts of freshwater fish stocking in the face of heterogeneous anglers exploiting spatially fisheries governed by varying institutional settings. The management strategy framework shall be used to evaluate the implications of key uncertainties associated with the implementation of different management tools and to study resulting trade-offs in terms of socioeconomics and biological outcomes.

Requirements:
• PhD in natural resource modelling, mathematical biology, economics, quantitative environmental sociology or related fields, preferably with a focus on fisheries
• Strong quantitative skills (model-building and statistics, key programming languages)
• Good academic record in terms of publications
• Ability and motivation to work both independently and in an interdisciplinary team of social
and natural scientists
• Very good working knowledge of English
• Familiarity with recreational fishing and German language are benefits
Salary is paid according to the TVöD and includes health insurance (gross salary up to 50.000 € depending on age and qualifications). In keeping with the IGB's policy regarding gender equality, female Aplicants are particularly encouraged to apply. Disabled people with identical qualifications will be
favoured.

Please send your application materials (brief motivation letter of 2-4 pages with an outline of past and future research topics in light of the above-mentioned topical framework, CV, list of publications, three most important papers, scans of certificates, names and email of three referees) in one combined PDF electronically not later than October, 30, 2011 to arlinghaus@igb-berlin.de (Prof. Dr. Robert Arlinghaus, also to be used to address questions related to the job).
