The University of Gothenburg Department of Marine Sciences wishes to develop and strengthen its physical oceanography activities through a new appointment of an Associate Senior Lecturer in Physical Oceanography. The strategy of the department includes developing collaboration between different specializations within marine sciences, and also working with the Sven Lovén Centre for marine infrastructure (http://loven.gu.se/english/) to further develop the infrastructure as a national and international resource for research and education.
The main task is to perform research and education within the broad field of physical oceanography. The successful candidate will develop a research program in her/his chosen research area, harmonizing with existing research at the Department. The research shall be conducted in independent projects led and initialized by the candidate, and demonstrate opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration with other marine disciplines in the Department, as well as national and international collaboration. The candidate is expected to set up a research group in a relevant research area, including attracting external research funding.
