Job offers of the Thünen Institute
The Institute of Sea Fisheries at the Johann Heinrich von Thünen-Institute, Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries, in Bremerhaven is offering a full-time position (currently 39 hours per week) for a
for the collection of fisheries data and analysis of fishing impact on benthic ecosystems and habitats. The position is to be filled as soon as possible. The aim is to exploit the full potential of available data and models (e.g., VMS data, logbook data, biological survey data) to develop a better understanding and appropriate indicators of fishing and other impacts on the seafloor.
Analysing fishing activities with different gear types across various temporal and spatial scales and their impact on benthos is central to the announced position. The successful candidate is expected to significantly contribute to future development of the Thünen research profile and policy advice in this field. As part of a small research group, the candidate will investigate patterns of fishing effort based on satellite data from the vessel monitoring system (VMS), data from the Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) and log books and combine these data sets with georeferenced data e.g. from biological surveys or remote sensing. The research will allow mapping of fishing effort of various fisheries being one of the main human pressures on the ocean at a high resolution and understanding its impact on seafloor integrity and services provided by benthic ecosystems. It will further significantly contribute to implementing an ecosystem approach to fisheries management in the frame of the European Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). Development of an ecological risk assessment approach in relation to fishing impacts including development of appropriate indicators is a second main task of the announced position.
Work to be carried out is expected to fulfil national reporting requirements under the EU fisheries data collection regulation (DCF, EU-MAP) and MFSD and will support the German contributions to international conventions such as ICES, OSPAR und HELCOM.
We offer you an opportunity to work on a variety of relevant societal questions in a lively and stimulating research environment, and the chance to use contacts with national and international research institutions and organisations. As the professional and personal development of our staff is important to us, we offer a family-friendly working environment, flexible working time models as well as extensive professional training and further education opportunities.
