Job offers of the Thünen Institute
The Thuenen Institute of Sea Fisheries of the Johann Heinrich von Thuenen Institute, Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries, is offering a temporary position for 3 years beginning at the earliest possible date, for a
Research Scientist (f/m/d).
The position is part-time with 65 % of the regular working time (i.e. currently 25.35 hrs/week) for the development of methods based on artificial intelligence (AI) for age reading of fish. The methodological development work on self-learning algorithms is ideally suited for a doctoral thesis. This vacancy is therefore addressed to applicants who, in addition to their employment relationship, may also pursue their own further academic training in the form of a Ph.D. In this context, the Thünen Institute of Sea Fisheries cooperates with various universities and colleges. The employment relationship shall be limited in time under section 2(1) sentence 1 of the Science Time Contract Act.
Data on the age structure of fish populations are required to estimate the stock sizes. So far, age determination has been based on microscopic images of ring structures in the ear stones (otoliths) of the fish. The application of artificial intelligence for the interpretation of the ring structures is obvious and is to be developed and established within this project for important commercial fish species such as cod, plaice or saithe. In addition, there are possibilities of automated acquisition of biochronological data, e.g. for the investigation of climate effects on fish growth patterns.
The tasks include in particular:
We offer you a highly interesting and cutting-edge research topic in applied research to be conducted within the Thünen Institute's network of interdisciplinary and international cooperation. The results of the work are also of interest to the public, allowing for opportunities of public outreach.
The employment relationship is governed by the provisions of the Collective Agreement for the Public Service (TVöD). The payment of the remuneration is made when the personal and collective bargaining requirements are fulfilled according to pay category 13 TVöD.
The Thünen Institute promotes the professional equality of women and men and therefore welcomes expressly encourages applications from women.
The Thünen Institute is committed to inclusion. Applications from people with severe disabilities are therefore expressly desired. These will be given special consideration in the selection procedure.
