Jobbeschreibung The scientific objectives of the advertised project are to (1) establish a biodiversity baseline of pelagic fauna, in particular gelatinous zooplankton, (2) to quantify the role of selected pelagic fauna in vertical carbon flux and (3) to optimize in situ observations of pelagic fauna.

The candidate will be applying and optimizing in situ observational methodologies (e.g. single and stereo underwater cameras), perform net sampling and molecular genetic analysis to collect data on pelagic faunal diversity, size, abundance and distribution from shallow waters to the deep sea. The required fieldwork in Israel or elsewhere will be at least 1-2 months per year, and will involve shore and/or ship- based expeditions. Laboratory work involves image analysis and optimization (supported by University of Haifa), assistance in technology improvement, faunal identification from samples and genetic laboratory work. Results should be presented on conferences and project meetings and published in peer-reviewed journals, and will be coupled with carbon export work in other EMS FORE work packages.
