Future Oceans Lab offers a postdoctoral position for a researcher with a strong background in theoretical modelling and fisheries bio-economic analyses. The successful candidate will join our lab led by Elena Ojea in the University of Vigo, Spain, and will work in close collaboration with the Sustainable Fisheries Group and the Environmental Market Solutions Lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB).

The postdoctoral researcher will work with the Principal Investigator and project team to develop a new bioeconomic fishery model to explore the optimal adaptation of fisheries to climate change for sustainable management and conservation of marine resources.
