Position to be announced shortly

The Thünen Institute of Sea Fisheries (TI-SF) will shortly announce a position for a hydroacoustician/fisheries biologist.

"We are looking for a natural scientist with an in-depth understanding of hydroacoustic methods, data acquisition, data evaluation and modelling skills. Apart from TI-SF participations in internationally coordinated acoustic surveys on small pelagics, we cover and participate in a broad scope of hydroacoustic applications including unmanned surface vehicles, stationary echosounders, evaluation of mesopelagic fishes, and in the future also acoustic telemetry. Further, we have projects focusing on collecting marine ecosystem data with non-invasie, automatic measuring platforms, both stationary and mobile that combine a range of hydrographic, hydroacoustic and optic sensors.

Additionally, we have new surveys implemented that strive to combine acoustic and trawl indices for semi-demersal gadoids. Apart from our existing research vessels that partly are already equipped with broadband echosounders, we will have a new research vessel put into service in the next years that will be suited for basically every imaginable hydroacoustic application (sonar, broadband echosounder, multibeam echosounder etc.).

We will be announcing the position soon, looking for a colleague who is willing to participate in our existing surveys and projects and who is capable and willing to complement our team through planning, implementing and analyzing all applications that can be considered with the instrument and survey range available at our institute.

If you feel that this position might perfectly suit you, or if you know someone who might be interested, please do not hesitate to drop us a line and also tell us about your expectations or ideas for a corresponding position."

If you are interested and would like to know more, please contact Dr Matthias Schaber
