PhD Supervisor: Dr. Olivier Thébaud
Co-supervisors: Dr Claire Macher, Ifremer ; Dr Richard Lorne Little, CSIRO

The doctoral student will be employed by Ifremer, and the cost of the position will be shared by joint agreement between the supporting parties. Ifremer support has been confirmed. Co-funding is being sought from the Quantitative Marine Science Program, and the Centre for Marine Socio-ecology at the University of Tasmania.


The co-tutelle framework will ensure that the doctoral student has an opportunity to significantly interact with both the French and the Australian research groups (at least one year in each location). The PhD research will be linked to on-going research projects involving the co-supervisors, and French and Australian partners. The research will also benefit from interactions with the Mixed Fisheries Management Working Group of ICES (WGMIXFISH).
