NEW: PhD position in Marine Ecology

We have an open PhD position in our group with focus on benthic-pelagic coupling.

Closing date: 20 September 2016

This position will be associated with the FORMAS project ‘Responses of pelagic-benthic coupling to environmental change in the Baltic Sea’. The goal of this project is to disentangle how shifts in pelagic and benthic species composition can affect the flux of organic matter and nutritional quality of settling material. The student will study relationships between planktonic and benthic dynamics using monitoring data, reciprocal fluxes of particulate organic matter and potentially experiments using experiments, and use this information to project functional species traits under future climate and nutrient scenarios. The project involves statistical analysis, experiments and modelling to assess effects of human pressure on benthic-pelagic coupling processes.
