3 Year Postdoc in Antarctic Marine Science – New Zealand (Otago)

Fabien Montiel


We are seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to contribute to the Marsden-funded research project ‘How vulnerable are Antarctica’s coasts to colonisation’. In this role you will work on a project that will bring together interdisciplinary approaches in genomic, ecological, physiological, and oceanographic / sea ice modelling to build a comprehensive picture of the scale of biological incursions to Antarctica via macroalgal rafting.

This position represents an exciting opportunity to join one of the country’s most research-intensive Universities and become part of a team helping to lead Antarctic research in New Zealand.

Your skills and experience

The successful candidate will bring high-level computational skills in EITHER genomic (bioinformatic) analyses OR physical environmental modelling (oceanographic particle dispersal / modelling coastal polynya / habitat modelling with climate change).

In addition, the successful candidate will be expected to have:
•    A PhD in relevant field.
•    Proven track record of high-quality research outputs such as peer-reviewed papers.
•    Research experience in evolutionary biology, physical oceanography or habitat modelling.
•    Good organisational skills and the ability to keep accurate records.
•    Ability to work well as part of a team, as well as independently.
•    Knowledge and respect for the Treaty of Waitangi and its relevance in a university setting.

Expertise in any of the following areas could be an advantage:
•    Molecular laboratory skills, especially Genotyping by Sequencing library preparation.
•    Marine biology.
•    Antarctic research.

Further details

This is a fixed term (three years), full-time position available from March 2021 (mid-2021 at the latest) or a date to be mutually agreed with the successful candidate.
