Researcher in Nofima within department Production Biology
About the position
Are you interested in research areas at the intersection of fish biology and aquaculture technology and with the development of closed containment aquaculture systems, namely recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS)?
We are looking for a researcher with both theoretical and practical experience within topics such as water quality, water treatment and the biology of salmonids in these systems. In the Production Biology department, knowledge about the biological needs and welfare of different cultured species and life stages, and environmental conditions is important for the development of a more sustainable aquaculture production.
The position can be based in Sunndalsøra or Tromsø, and some flexibility and travelling between Nofima’s research stations is required.The main tasks for this position are: contributing to the acquisition and leadership of projects; the planning and management of experiments; data analysis, reporting, publishing, and dissemination.
The project portfolio will contain both national and international projects, where close connection with the industry is important. Knowledge of the Norwegian aquaculture industry is especially desirable. Participation in the development of Nofima’s research strategy within RAS and sludge management is expected.
