OPEN POSITIONS Research Assistant, short-term

The new Department of Marine Sciences (Marine) is a multi-disciplinary academic environment including biology, chemistry, oceanography and geology.

Our teaching and research activities stretch from circulation under the polar ice to biogeochemical fluxes in the deep sea, and from shallow seagrass beds to cold-water coral reefs. In these environments we study different levels of biological organization from genes, individuals and populations, to communities and ecosystems. We work within ecology, evolution, physiology, systematics and combinations of these fields in order to understand the impact of natural and anthropogenic changes of the environment. The department is placed at the main campus in Gothenburg and at the two marine research laboratories at Tjärnö and Kristineberg (www.marine.gu.se).
