  • Sweden
  • €40,000 / Yearly
  • Full-Time
Postdoc position investigates bacterial relationships in biofloc/biofilms and pathogens within Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS). The candidate will be responsible for cultivation in bioreactor systems of specific microbial assemblages that contribute to enhanced growth and well-being of live fishfeed (rotifers, brine shrimp) widely used in aquaculture. They will also work on microalgal production for shellfish, and biofloc systems for fish and shrimp. Objectives for achieving project goals include: i) increased production of energy storage and other growth-enhancing compounds in biofloc iv) heterotrophic and autotrophic microalgal enhancement of live feeds ii) characterization of nutrients, including vitamins such as B12, amino acids such taurine, and their bioavailability in algal and biofloc biomass iii) physiological effects of enhanced feeds on gut health.
We are seeking a candidate at the postdoctoral level or beyond with a strong background in microbiology, analytical chemistry or bioengineering, preferably with relevant aquaculture experience with either fish or invertebrates. The candidate should be independent and self-motivated; details of the project can be adjusted based on the candidates skills and interests. The candidate will be expected to take leadership within the project as they will be required to drive and conclude their work independently, to take initiative and discuss/develop their own ideas including writing well-formulated reports and articles. The candidate will be working in a multidisciplinary team of engineers, pathologists, food scientists, modellers and policy-makers involving several research groups internationally, thus good team skills, communication and the ability to travel are required.
