SINTEF Ocean's department of Seafood Technology is searching for a research scientist for the Fisheries technology group. We can offer a position in a multidisciplinary team of scientists addressing the needs of the fishing fleets. Our vision is to help developing the fishing sector further towards utilizing the marine resources sustainable and profitably as possible.

Responsibility and tasks

The successful applicant will conduct research on capture technology for fishing gears such as trawls, seines, pots, longlines and gillnets. This includes gear development, design and construction of scale models for testing in our flume tank in Hirtshals, and full-scale experimental fishing. Documentation of catch efficiency, size and species selectivity, energy efficiency for fishing operations and catch quality are central aspects for the research activities. The fishery technology department consists of experienced scientists with backgrounds in fishing gear technology, fisheries biology, fisheries management, marine safety, risk analysis, physics, hydrodynamics, marine technology and cybernetics.

The successful applicant will develop and lead research actions aiming at understanding fish/fishing gear interactions:

  • She/he gets involved in or propose national/international research projects;
  • She/he undertakes combined experimental/modelling approaches to better understand attraction, capture and avoidance processes for different fishing gears (trawls, seines, bow nets), different species (demersal and pelagic fish, cephalopods), including intra and interspecies interactions.
  • She/he analyses and interprets the data collected and simulations performed;
  • She/he publishes research results and presents findings to scientific and non-scientific audiences.

  • Master English both in writing and orally.
  • Have good collaboration skills.
  • General cruise experience.
  • Experience from fishing or trials with trawls, seiners, purse seiners, lines, long liners, or with the use of other types of fishing gears.
  • Experience from fishing-related fishing behavior studies.
  • Experience with and expertise in experimental design and research methodology.
  • Experience from the fishing industry would be an advantage.
  • Knowledge of analysis of catch data and general statistics.
  • Experience in collaboration with fishing industry and development / innovation of industrial products.

We offer
