Global challenges demand new insight, innovative solutions and local legitimacy. Nord University is a young university with strong regional ties and a global perspective. We are committed to delivering relevant educational programmes and research, with a focus on blue and green growth, innovation and entrepreneurship, and welfare, health and education. Nord University has 12,000 students and 1,200 employees at nine study locations in central and northern Norway.
Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture (FBA) is one of five faculties at the Nord University, and is represented at two of Nord's campuses, Bodø and Steinkjer. FBA is responsible for research and education within animal sciences, aquaculture, ecology and genomics. Nord University's strategy pints out blue and green growth as one of its three profiles and the faculty aspires to be the preferred partner in the High North within this part of the bio-economy.
In recent years, FBA has undergone major developments and projects financed by prestigious programmes like FRIPRO (The Research Council of Norway) and ERC Consolidator Grants (The European Research Council) are part of the faculty's project portfolio.
The faculty has approximately 150 academic and technical/administrative employees, of which ca 30 % is recruited internationally. Twenty of the faculty's employees are located at campus Steinkjer. The staff at Steinkjer are focusing on research and education within terrestrial ecology/natural resource management and animal sciences. The remaining are located in Bodø, focusing on aquaculture,animal science, genomics and marine ecology.
FBA has ca 840 students and offers eight bachelor's degree programmes within aquaculture, biology, international marketing, animal sciences, veterinary nursing and natural resource management. The faculty also offers a master's degree programme in Biology and Aquaculture, life-long learning courses and a doctoral degree programme in Aquatic Biosciences.

A (three/four year) PhD fellowship on the evolutionary ecology of fishes is available at the Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture, Nord University (Bodø, Norway).
FBA invites applications from outstanding candidates for a three-year (with possibility of a fourth year) PhD fellowship on the evolutionary ecology of fishes. The PhD fellowship is affiliated with the Genomics division and the Ecology division, and the successful candidate will be based in Bodø. There is a possibility of a four-year PhD fellowship, including one year in total with duties as teaching and supervising.
The aim of the PhD project is to investigate the role of ecology, life history and genomic properties in population divergence and species coexistence. The project will use two stickleback fishes, the three-spined and the nine-spined stickleback, as a model system. The research involves a combination of field studies, functional traits analysis, genomics, and experiments to compare the strength of population-level associations between adaptation, adaptive potential and ecological success across species. The project will be carried out in collaboration with Filip Volckaert (KU Leuven) in Belgium and Blake Matthews (Eawag) in Switzerland, where the candidate will do part of the field and lab work. Genomic work will be done at Nord University.Qualifications and requirements
- The candidate should have an MSc degree (or equivalent) in biology, (aquatic) ecology, environmental sciences or equivalent fields. Profound knowledge and hands-on experience in evolutionary ecology, population genetics and statistical analyses is required. Interest and prior experience
