Call 2 - 23 MSCA SEAS postdoctoral research fellow positions
Shaping European Research Leaders for Marine Sustainability (SEAS) is a postdoctoral research fellowship programme for 37 fellows launched and managed by the University of Bergen.
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.
The 23 SEAS postdoctoral research fellow positions will be advertised individually or in pairs in Jobbnorge, EURAXESS and linked from this webpage after August 1st. Call deadline is October 31st, 2022.
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.
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. Candidates who by assessment of the application and attachment are seen to conflict with the criteria in these regulations might be prohibited from recruitment to UiB.
Be aware that until August 1st 2022, the information on this page, including the table below with it's links, must not be considered as final, as adjustments may be done! There might also be minor adjustments in the Guide for applicants.
