At Umeå Marine Sciences Centre, we have several exciting positions open, or opening soon. Please do revisit frequently if you are interested as we will update closing dates as soon as the information is available.
Postdoc – biophysics of algal photosynthesis: Deadline 21 September 2023
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to advance our understanding of variability in algal light harvesting because of morphological complexity at the sub-cellular to habitat scale. This will be achieved by taking a dual theoretical and experimental approach, using (1) multiphysics modelling to reconstruct 3D light environments that account for organism-scale morphological complexity and (2) single-cell experimentation to measure cell-scale light dynamics. Using red coralline algae as a model system, the outcomes from this research will therefore have cascading implications for global-scale climate change conservation and sustainable development.
Postdoc – marine sustainable development opening Aug/Sep 2023
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to help develop a marine ecosystem-based management processes where decisions are based on sustainability and democracy as part of the multi-consortium C2B2 project (https://www.umu.se/en/news/mistra-funding-programme_11698755/). The project's vision is to steer developments towards a more sustainable, open and democratic blue economy involving stakeholders to scientists. The postdoc will play a key role in “Living Lab North” which will focus on the sustainable development of northern parts of the Baltic Sea considering, for example, the recent interest in polymetallic nodule mining. Living Lab North will be led by Umeå Marine Sciences Centre at Umeå University.
