Tvärminne Zoological Station (TZS, Hanko, Finland) invites applications for a tenure track Assistant / Associate Professor position starting in 2017.
TZS seeks candidates with a doctorate degree and significant post-doctoral experience in ecology, marine ecology or ecosystems ecology or related disciplines. Candidates should have recent demonstration of excellence in research, including a strong publication record commensurate with experience and demonstrated potential to obtain external research grants. The successful candidate will be part of a rapidly growing team of researchers that explore the structure and function of marine/Baltic Sea ecosystems under environmental stress. Central to this effort is to build a general understanding of the consequences of changes in biodiversity and its consequences for ecosystem function and services.
The successful candidate is expected to develop an independent externally funded line of field-based research in functional marine biodiversity. Candidates are also required to participate in post-graduate teaching and supervision in the area of their expertise. The position is initially for five years with a possibility for another fixed-term contract as associate professor or a permanent position of professor following successful evaluation.
