PhD Scholarship in Decision Tools and Management in The Fish Sector at Technical University of Denmark

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark has an opening PhD position in sustainable development. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 3 years. This position is closed on August 25, 2020.

A PhD Scholarship in Decision Tools and Management in the Fish Sector is available at the Technical University of Denmark, National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua) with expected starting date 15th September 2020. The scholarship is financed by the EU H2020 project WaSeaBi. The project work will primarily be carried out at the Section for Ecosystem-based Marine Management, which is located in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark.

The WaSeaBi (Optimal utilization of seafood side-stream through the design of new holistic process lines) is a European project under the framework of Horizon 2020 with focus on solving the barriers to sound exploitation of the aquatic resources. The associated PhD Project will focus on the optimal utilization of seafood side-stream. This will be facilitated through development of storage solutions, sorting technologies and decision tools to secure an efficient, sustainable supply system for by-catches and side-stream from aquaculture, fisheries (fisheries scholarships) and the aquatic processing industries. One of the solutions is to develop tools for supporting decisions for valorization of side-streams and to test these decision tools in at least 2 companies. This is done by developing an analytic hierarchy process (AHP) which is a structured technique for organizing and analyzing complex decisions, based on mathematics (mathematics scholarships) and psychology. AHP methodology allows decisions about optimum fish side-streams valorization alternatives. The project will explore the sociology (fully funded sociology scholarships) and phycology elements of the AHD methodology, which are rarely studied or accounted for in decision-making models. The aim of this PhD will focus on observing and studying the internal interactions between the relevant decision makers in organization and the external interaction with the market.

By expanding decision making tools and techniques with the insights gained from the dual process study the phd (phd scholarships) student should create new support tools to ensure a more unbiased approached in the organization.

The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide. We offer

The research of the Section for Ecosystem-based Marine Management aims to develop knowledge and tools that can be used as the basis for advice on ecosystem based fisheries management taking overall environmental goals as reflected in environmental policy into account. The research spectrum of the section involves four main themes covering i) Development of fisheries management evaluation methods, and advice on spatial fisheries management measures; ii) Quantitative analyses of indicators and indicator thresholds in relation to the definition of good environmental status under the EU Marine Strategy Directive; iii) Development of methods to minimize unwanted by-catch of e.g. mammals and implementation of alternative fishing gear to minimize negative interactions between marine mammals and fisheries; and iv) Assessment of the effects of interactions with predator and prey fish stocks.

The purpose of DTU Aqua is to provide research, advice and education at the highest international level within the sustainable exploitation of living marine and freshwater resources, the biology of aquatic organisms and the dynamics of ecosystems as well as their integration in ecosystem-based management. DTU Aqua has 260 employees, of whom a third are scientific staff. The other employees are assistant biologists, laboratory technicians, IT employees, administrative staff, ship's crew, student assistants etc. The institute is organized into eight scientific sections which carry out the research, educational and advisory activities. In addition, the institute has a number of scientific and administrative support functions, including the research vessel DANA. DTU Aqua has employees in Lyngby, Silkeborg, Nykbing Mors and Hirtshals as well as on Dana. You can read more about DTU Aqua on
