International PhD Scholarships in Risk Management Strategies in Fisheries Management, University of Southern Denmark and Tilburg University

An International Ph.D. Scholarship is available at the Research school Centre of Fisheries & Aquaculture Management & Economics (FAME), a joint scholarship between University of Southern Denmark, Esbjerg and Department of Economics, Tilburg University, Holland.

The objective of this Ph.D. project is to investigate how risk theory and methods of risk management can be adapted to fisheries management so as to make fisheries management more effective in relation to situations with varying degrees of risks and uncertainties.

The main focus of this Ph.D. project is to investigate how risk analysis theories can be applied to fisheries management, both in relation to the management decisions and the phase of implementation.

While biological uncertainties and risks have been addressed in fisheries advice, but need to be further developed, a systematic approach including also economical and social risks in fisheries management is still lacking and new initiatives for adapting the risk framework to fisheries management are needed.

A full description of the project is available at www.sam.sdu.dk/fame

Supervisors will be Associated Professor Urs Steiner Brandt, University of Southern Denmark and Professor Erwin Bulte, Tilburg University.
