About

The Aquatic Biosciences programme of Nord University studies the structure, function and behavior of living organisms in aquatic ecosystems, predominantly related to the marine sector.

Overview

Programme outline

Specialisation

  • The Aquatic Biosciences programme of Nord University integrates four areas of specialisation - Aquaculture, Ecology, Genomics, and Animal science, production and welfare - which correspond to the strategic research divisions at the faculty.
  • As a doctoral candidate at our faculty you are affiliated with one of the strategic research groups. Individual PhD projects may be cross-disciplinary in nature and could encompass both farmed and wild aquatic organisms, as well as the environment they thrive in. 
  • Investigations embracing the different aquatic biospheres may either delve into the molecular mechanisms or stay at the ecosystem scale. While the overarching theme of the PhD in Aquatic Biosciences is aquatic resource utilisation and management.

Job opportunities

  • The PhD in Aquatic Biosciences will first and foremost qualify the students for positions within higher education institutions and for research and development work at research institutes. They would also have opportunities within the aquaculture or marine life science-related industries in Norway and abroad. Non-Governmental agencies interested in marine environmental issues will also be an attractive employer.

  • Ecological and Interspecies Ethics
  • Advanced Biological Data Analysis
