Tvärminne Zoological fieldstation, belonging to Helsinki University in Finland, is looking for a new research technician (permanent position).
Tvärminne is beautifully located just where the Gulf of Finland meets the Baltic Proper, near the picturesque town of Hanko/Hangö.
Are you a dab hand at duct-tape resolutions? Do you know the 456 uses of cable ties? Would you like to work with solving problems and fixing stuff? Are you, or would you like to become, a connoisseur of sauna? Apply! Or inform anyone else that might be interested.
The University of Helsinki and Stockholm University have entered into a strategic partnership where one of the key areas is Baltic Sea research. To strengthen this joint research initiative they are now inviting applications for two post-doctoral positions, one at Tvärminne Zoological Station (University of Helsinki) and one at the Askö Laboratory / Baltic Sea Centre (Stockholm University).
They are looking for candidates with experience and a strong interest in at least one of the following areas, with a particular focus on the coastal zone:
– biodiversity and ecosystem functioning
– benthic and/or pelagic biogeochemical cycles
– modelling of ecosystem processes in the coastal zone
The ideal applicants would have PhD’s in Marine Ecology, Ecosystems ecology, Biogeochemistry, Ecosystem modelling or related disciplines, have strong publication records commensurate with experience, and a demonstrated potential to obtain external research funds.
The successful candidates will be expected to be active in research and publication, advise graduate students, and engage in inter-disciplinary research and public outreach.
Comparative studies at both Askö Laboratory and Tvärminne Zoological Station are expected.
So, if you fit any of the above descriptions and love to be out in the field, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience two beautiful archipelagos of the Baltic Sea.
