Open positions in Marine Science

Tvärminne Zoological Station and the CoastClim Centre is inviting applications for the following 4 positions in Marine Ecology and Marine Systems Ecology.

  1. University researcher in Marine Systems Ecology (5 years)
  2. University researcher in Marine Ecology (5 years)
  3. Postdoctoral researcher in Marine Systems Ecology (3 years)
  4. Postdoctoral researcher in Marine Ecology (3 years)

For the university researcher positions, we are looking for advanced post docs to more senior scientists that have strong and well documented experience and track-records in their fields. We seek scientists that can develop successful research projects that have potential for further development and extramural funding. Successful applicants will work in a trans-disciplinary manner and foster collaboration within CoastClim. For all the positions close collaboration will be expected with the Baltic Sea Centre at Stockholm University, but position 3 (post doc in Marine Systems Ecology) will have Stockholm as a primary placement. 

In terms of experience and profile we are inviting applications broadly. For the Marine Ecology positions, we invite applications from scientists that have experience in, for example, biodiversity and ecosystem function-relationships of coastal animal and plant/algal communities, carbon and nutrient cycling, habitat mapping, and/or habitat-function relationships. For Marine Systems Ecology, relevant skills may include carbon-cycling and greenhouse gas dynamics in coastal ecosystems, microbial ecology, energy flows, food webs, systems ecology, and/or modelling of carbon and nutrients.

Successful candidates should have the proven capability to conduct independent research, publish in scientific journals and have excellent analytical and methodological skills. In addition, the candidates are expected to have good communication skills and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively in a multidisciplinary working community.
