Junior Scientist with focus on aquaculture
The aim is to enable scientists with a doctorate to build a career in academic research. Through funding of up to five years, the post holder will be given the opportunity to habilitate on a defined research topic in the field of aquaculture. The topic should deal with current, innovative and interdisciplinary issues in interdisciplinary cooperation with the specialist institutes of the FLI. The effects of trade, husbandry, nutritional and environmental conditions on fish health as well as corresponding stress reactions to infectious diseases should be the research subject. The research question should primarily deal with farmed fish (e.g. trout, carp, tilapia).
The job advertisement targets qualified junior scientists with a doctorate in the fields of veterinary medicine, biology, agricultural sciences or related disciplines having a very good scientific record. We are explicitly looking for young scientists who have not previously worked at the FLI. The involvement of university partners and other non-university research institutions is expressly welcomed.
Proven experience in research with farmed fish in one of the above-mentioned subject areas (animal husbandry, animal nutrition, infectiology, epidemiology) as well as experience in interdisciplinary cooperation and a very good knowledge of German and English, or the willingness to acquire German language skills in a timely manner, are desirable.
