The postdoc will be responsible for continuing experiments on Atlantic salmon studying reaction norms of fitness-related traits in common garden and semi-natural conditions, as well as analyzing 3 years of available data. This work is complemented by molecular, ecological, evolutionary and quantitative genetic research being conducted within the same project.
An appointee to the position shall hold a doctoral degree and have the ability to conduct independent scholarly work. Suitable applicants will have a strong background in the design and implementation of common garden experiments as well as in statistical analysis of evolutionary ecological data, as demonstrated by publications on relevant topics. Experience in evolutionary or quantitative genetics and/or experience with aquatic animal husbandry and experimentation is an advantage. The ability to work as a part of a larger research team addressing related questions is also important.
