Two postdoctoral positions in zooplankton ecology and food web ecology

Supervisors: Dr. Brian Hunt and Dr. Evgeny Pakhomov
Location: Vancouver, B.C.
Deadline: February 15, 2021

Position 1: North Pacific Zooplankton Ecology

All Pacific salmon are dependent on zooplankton resources for growth, health, and survival, consuming them both directly or indirectly via micronekton. The biomass, composition and distribution of zooplankton are therefore contributing factors in changing salmon productivity. We are seeking a PDF to investigate key aspects of zooplankton ecology in the North Pacific and develop zooplankton resources in support of salmon research.

Position 2: North Pacific Food Webs

We are seeking a PDF to research the winter feeding ecology of Pacific salmon and the food webs that support them using biogeochemical approaches (stable isotopes and fatty acids).
