The Department of Marine Sciences wishes to develop and strengthen its marine chemistry activities through a new appointment of Associate Senior Lecturer. The strategy of the department includes developing collaboration between different specialisations within marine science, and also working with the Sven Lovén Centre for marine infrastructure (loven.gu.se) to further develop the infrastructure as a national and international resource for research and education. Priority will be given to candidates whose research plans contribute to this strategy.
University of Gothenburg's Department of Marine Sciences is Sweden's most complete environment for marine research and education, and is one of only a few such organizations in Europe. The university has excellent marine infrastructure facilities including state-of-the-art instrumentation, two large research stations, and a new 49-m research ship that will come into service during 2019. The University's researchers also have access to the icebreaker Oden for polar research. The Department of Marine Sciences, which was formed in 2015, brings together expertise in physical oceanography, marine chemistry, marine biology, marine geology and marine conservation. The department hence enjoys excellent conditions for addressing the challenges of the future within marine research and education.
The successful candidate will develop a research programme in her/his chosen research area.
