A three-year NERC-funded postdoctoral research position is available to work
in the Molecular Ecology and Fisheries Genetics Laboratory in the School of
Biological Sciences (Environment Centre Wales) to investigate the effects of
elevated temperature on developmental rate, recruitment and connectivity of
Antarctic fishes.

The project, jointly funded with the British Antarctic Survey, integrates
otolith microstructure and larval morphometrics with molecular genetic
analysis (microsatellites, DNA sequencing) and oceanographic modelling of
larval development and dispersal in relation to elevated temperature. The
appointee may be required to undertake several months of experimental work
in research facilities on South Georgia, and will join a collaborative EU
team to investigate the potential effects of ocean warming on connectivity
in marine taxa.

Application forms and further particulars should be obtained by contacting
Human Resources, Bangor University; tel: (01248) 382926/388132; or see

Please quote reference number 10-10/67 when applying.

Closing date for applications: 1.00 p.m. Friday 12th November, 2010.
Interviews will be held in the morning of Monday 29th November.
