Havforskningsinstituttet er et av Europas største marine forskningsmiljø. Vi har ca. 750 tilsatte og en rekke forskningsfasiliteter og laboratorier av høy internasjonal standard. Havforskningsinstituttet eier og drifter seks forskningsfartøy. Vårt hovedkontor ligger i Bergen, vi har avdeling i Tromsø og forskningsstasjoner i Matre, Austevoll og Flødevigen.

Postdoktor, ev stipendiat i økologi (Mrk. 21-14)

Ved Havforskningsinstituttet har vi behov for en postdoktor/ev. stipendiat som skal jobbe med stabile isotoper til undersøkelser av næringsnett i Barentshavet og Polhavet. Stillingen er en tre års midlertidig tilsetting, og er plassert i forskningsgruppe ”Økosystemprosesser”, med arbeidssted Tromsø. Tilsetting i stilling som stipendiat vil være aktuelt ved manglende kvalifiserte søkere til stilling som postdoktor. Stillingen inngår i de to strategiske instituttprosjektene”The Arctic Ocean Ecosystem” (SI_Arctic) and”Trophic interactions in the Barents Sea – steps towards an Integrated Ecosystem Assessment” (TIBIA). Siktemålet med stillingen er å bidra til bedre beskrivelse og forståelse av næringsnettene, trofiske interaksjoner og pelagisk-bentisk kopling i økosystemene i våre nordlige havområder. Vi ønsker i utgangspunktet en person med doktorgrad i marin økologi og erfaring fra arbeid med stabile isotoper i undersøkelser av næringsnett. Arbeidet vil omfatte innsamling av prøver og analyser av stabile isotoper (karbon og nitrogen) fra nøkkelarter i hele næringsnettet på en gradient fra det boreale sørlige til det arktiske nordlige Barentshavet og tilgrensende deler av Polhavet. Alternativt søker vi en person med relevant faglig bakgrunn og interesse i å spesialisere seg i arbeid med bruk av stabile isotoper i studier av marine næringsnett i en PhD stilling. Personen som ansettes vil arbeide i bredt sammensatte forskerteam innen de to prosjektene hvor samarbeid med internasjonale partnere inngår.

Siembra de algas en Marte, una esperanza para la humanidad

Siembra de algas en Marte, una esperanza para la humanidad

 

Un grupo de científicos alemanes planteó sembrar cianobacterias en la atmósfera de Marte para generar oxígeno. Estas acciones representan una esperanza para todos los seres humanos ya que sin duda alguna abre la posibilidad de desarrollar vida en otro planeta. La propuesta consiste en introducir los microorganismos en la atmósfera marciana para convertir el dióxido de carbono -que representa el 96% del planeta rojo- en gas respirable para la humanidad. Los investigadores seleccionaron estas algas verdeazules por sus impresionantes características de supervivencia. “Las cianobacterias viven en tales condiciones en la Tierra, donde ni se espera encontrar vida”, argumentó Robert Schröder, líder de la investigación. Al mismo tiempo, se cree que este microorganismo, que es capaz de realizar fotosíntesis oxigénica, desempeñó un papel fundamental en la evolución de la atmósfera terrestre.
