2-year Postdoc position Turku, Finland

Come join us in our team on Experimental Ecology for a 2-year postdoc at Abo Akademi University in Turku Finlandstarting 1.1.2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The research is part of the BiodivERsA project BaltVib: Pathogenic Vibrio bacteria in the current and future Baltic Sea waters: mitigating the problem funded by the Academy of Finland and the European Union. The work will be carried out at the subject Environmental and Marine Biology at Abo Akademi University in close collaboration with project partners in Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Sweden, and Denmark. Experiments will be conducted at our field station the Archipelago Centre Korpoström, two hours southwest of Turku in the heart of the Archipelago Sea (UNESCO Biosphere Reserve). We will simulate simplified benthic hard- and soft-bottom community assemblages with or without blue mussels (Mytilus spp.), macrophytes (Fucus vesiculosus) and eelgrass (Zostera marina), all abundant and important ecosystem engineers in most parts of the Baltic. Bacterioplankton will be analyzed, and pathogenic and non-pathogenic subgroups will be identified in collaboration with the BaltVib partner institutions.

The application should be submitted by Friday 5 November 2021 at 12:00 (Finnish time) to: Project Researcher within project BaltVib
