The post-doc will be involved in the PROTEO team studying the interactions between physical oceanography and ecological systems at LOCEAN. He/she will work under the supervision of Cédric Cotté in the framework of the project BEST SEECTOR that aim to study the mesopelagic hotpsots in the souther Indian ocean.
The post-doctoral fellow shall contribute to parts of the program SEECTOR :
• Study/ analysis of acoustic data for the micronekton dstribution
• identification of important areas for intermediate trophic levels
• cross these informations with densities of top predators from telemetry (work in collaboration with an other post-doctorate)
• investigation of oceanographic processes sustaining trophic hotspots
• Application of climate scenarios to examine the future of these hotspots
• publication of an article on these analyses
