Two, 3-year Research Scientist postdoctoral positions in Maritime Geographies/Social Sciences at the Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB), Oldenburg, Germany. Come and join a growing group of geographers and social scientists at the interdisciplinary Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB). Located in beautiful Oldenburg, Germany, the HIFMB – a collaboration between the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) and Carl von Ossietzky University (UOL) – offers a multi-disciplinary, international, and dynamic environment for researching the marine environment and a vibrant, friendly and supportive culture for postdoctoral staff.
Within the HIFMB, expertise in marine ecology, data science and biodiversity theory are joined with a ever-growing social science and humanities profile in political ecology, maritime geographies and marine governance. The Carl von Ossietzky University is home to the Institute for Social Science, which has strong ties to the HIFMB. It is also an established home to work in Marine Spatial Planning.
