The University of Gothenburg in Sweden has 38 000 students and 6 000 employees making it one of the largest universities in Scandinavia. Strong research and study programs attract scientists and students from around the world. Our research group at the Marine Sciences Department is leading a large international project and is looking for candidates to fill a research manager and several post-doc and PhD positions with a research focus on one of the following topics (i) shellfish neuroendocrine physiology; or (ii) microalgal production for shellfish aquaculture; or (iii) waste management and engineering in recirculating aquaculture or aquaponics.

The ideal candidates will have good lab skills, organizational skills, and a desire to work closely with industry (aquaponics, aquaculture and hydroponics producers). Our group working on a wide range of research topics such as waste revalorization in aquaculture (mostly recirculating aquaculture systems) / novel feed ingredients for finfish / finfish and shellfish pathology / developing new aquaculture engineering designs / microbial aspects of waste digestion (wastewater engineering) / biofloc and biofilm formation / and neuroendocrine pathways in shellfish.   More information about the research group can be found here: https://www.gu.se/en/about/find-staff/alyssajoyce

As we have several positions to fill, applicants from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply or contact the PI regarding other opportunities even if they don't possess the exact qualifications below.

About University of Gothenburg, Department of Marine Science

The Department of Marine Sciences is Sweden’s most complete environment for marine research and marine education, and is one of only a few such organisations in Europe.

The Department’s vision is to be a national leader and to carry out activities of the highest international class within the field of marine sciences. Its operations are interdisciplinary in nature and involve both other departments at the Faculty of Science and other University of Gothenburg faculties, as well as other educational institutions in Sweden and worldwide. By working together with research colleagues from other scientific disciplines, the Department will also be able to take on the big global challenges.
