The proposed project aims to elucidate heterogeneity within the North Atlantic and Mediterranean albacore populations using otolith composition and morphometrics, growth and life history parameters. The information obtained will be used within a simulation modelling framework to investigate the consequences of the observed structuring for the overall productivity of the stock under various management scenarios.
The candidate will be employed at GMIT on a researcher contract, and will be supervised by Dr. Brophy (GMIT, Ireland) and Dr. Haritz Arrizabalaga (AZTI, Spain).
Deadline for applications is December 16th , and the work would start September 2013 at the earliest.
