A pioneer in ocean science, IFREMER’s cutting-edge research is grounded in sustainable development and open science. Our vision is to advance science, expertise and innovation to:
- Protect and restore the ocean
- Sustainably use marine resources to benefit society
- Create and share ocean data, information & knowledge.
With more than 1,500 personnel spread along the French coastline in more than 20 sites, the Institute explores the 3 great oceans: the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. A leader in ocean science, IFREMER is managing the French Oceanographic Fleet and its dedicated scientists create ground-breaking technology to push the boundaries of ocean exploration and knowledge, from the abyss to the atmosphere-ocean interface.
Well-established in the international scientific community, our scientists, engineers and technicians are committed to advance knowledge about our planet’s last unexplored frontiers. They provide the science we need for informed decision-making and public policy and they transfer this knowledge and technology to businesses to fulfill public and private needs. Core to our mission is also to strengthen public awareness about the importance of understanding the ocean and its resources, and empowering future generations of leaders through education and outreach national campaigns.
Founded in 1984, IFREMER is a French public organization and its budget approximates 240 million euros. It is operating under the joint authority of the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the French Ministry for the Ecological and Solidary Transition, and the French Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
The main objectives of the Ecology and Models for Fisheries Science research unit (EMH) are to acquire knowledge and develop methods for an ecosystem approach to fisheries management, in particular for integrated evaluation of marine exploited ecosystems. The three research themes concern (1) mechanisms and responses of ecosystem components, (2) integrated ecosystem evaluation, 3) management strategy evaluation. In addition EMH contributes to the Ifremer fisheries information system and provides expert knowledge and expertise on various fisheries and monitoring related issues.
Working at the research unit Ecology and Models for Fisheries Science the postdoctoral scientist will study the geographic distribution of blackspot seabream in the Bay of Biscay, assess the status of this stock and the fisheries, and model its past and potential future population dynamics for different exploitation scenarios. He/she will contribute to the collection of new data and organise an acoustic survey off Britany in 2021.
