Shaun Travels to Norway


Last week Shaun was in Bergen, Norway, for a meeting of collaborators and consultants on the ConEvolHer Project, coordinated by Katja Enberg. It was an incredibly stimulating week of science with some fantastic people. Thank you Katja and lab for organising such a great meeting!

Recently I've been fortunate to receive funding from the European Research Council for a 5 year project which will examine the role of physiological traits in fish vulnerability to commercial fishing gears, with implications for fisheries-induced evolution. Basically, the main questions will be - do the physiological traits of some fish within a species make those individuals more prone to being captured? And if so, can this lead to evolutionary change in population via selection on such traits?

As part of this project I currently have three positions open in my lab:

A 4 year post doc position (deadline for application March 8, 2015). Find out more here.

A 3.5 year PhD position (deadline for application March 1, 2015). Find out more here.

A 2 year research technician position (deadline for application March 22, 2015). Find out more here.

All positions will involve a mix of lab and fieldwork. I am very excited to bring together a dynamic team for this project so please contact me if you are interest in any of the positions!
