Shaping European Research Leaders for Marine Sustainability (SEAS) - CALL 2 IS OPEN!

SEAS is a career and mobility fellowship programme for 37 postdoctoral research fellows within marine sustainability. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 101034309.

Marine and coastal areas face multifaceted challenges, threatening biodiversity and humanity on a global scale. To have an impact on marine sustainability, there is an urgent need to integrate perspectives and insights from a diverse range of fields and sectors.

The University of Bergen's SEAS programme brings together a variety of aspects of marine sustainability, involving all UiB faculties, and many academic and non-academic partners.

In this second call, open August 1st – October 31st 2022, we invite talented researchers to apply for 23 postdoctoral fellowships. Successful candidates will be employed in 3-year fixed-term full-time postdoctoral research fellow positions at UiB. Individual contracts may, under certain conditions, be extended by up to one year if funded from other sources than the SEAS programme.

If applying you must read the relevant Jobbnorge advertisement and the SEAS Guide for applicants thoroughly for details on eligibility and application requirements, including the mobility rules.

Only applications received through the recruitment portal Jobbnorge will be considered. Questions can be sent to [email protected]

Please be aware: That the application process is time-demanding The application process requires a close dialogue with the named supervisor or contact who, close to the deadline, must sign a supervisor match declaration if an application is to be eligible. That some fields of research, especially within sensitive technology areas, might be enforced by Norwegian and international regulations regarding Control of the Export of Strategic Goods, Services and Technology.
