Research and Engineer Positions Available at SKLEC-NIVA Center

SKLEC-NIVA Centre is a joint international research laboratory set up by State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (SKLEC) at East China Normal University (ECNU) and Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) studying on coastal and marine research on marine physics, biogeochemistry, ecosystems and ecosystem services with a focus on climate and environmental change. The Centre is led by Professor Richard Bellerby, a ‘Thousand Talents Plan’ expert. Both the Chinese and Norwegian sides provide investment, personnel and equipment for the Centre.


Professor, Associate Professor and Postdoctoral Researcher positions

We are looking for outstanding researchers with a proven record in interdisciplinary research in Chemical Oceanography, Marine Biogeochemistry, Marine Ecology, Biophysics, Remote Sensing and Ocean Observations.  Applicants should have a PhD with a proven research record, should be flexible, independent, innovative and cooperative, and wish to work in a broad interdisciplinary scientific research group. You should be able to work in a team, but also independently. You are able to communicate easily in English, both verbally and in writing. 


Marine instrument developer

We are looking for a highly qualified engineer to develop novel instruments for ocean observations. The successful applicant will have experience in the operation and development of sensors for physical, environmental and/or biological monitoring, competent computer and sensor programming capability. Experience with responsibility for marine instrument operations is an advantage.


Postdoctoral Researcher positions

In the SKLEC-NIVA Centre, Quan-Xing’s group is using marine algae as the model systems to explore how physical environments can control organisms’ behavior and biodiversity. With specific expertise in theoretical models, we integrate the controlled lab experiments and mathematical model to understand how ecological processes and physical environments shape the spatial patterned formation in marine ecology. Our vision is that understanding individuals (or micro-scale) biophysical interactions is paramount to predict ecosystem-level dynamics and functionality with the collaborators from NYU and SJTU research groups.

For this postdoctoral position applications are welcome from early-career scientists with an outstanding track record in Biophysics / Quantitative Biology, Biomathematics, Ecology, and a strong interest in Movement Ecology.

Please submit applications, with letter of interest, CV and contact details of two referees to hjiang@sklec.ecnu.edu.cn (email subject “SKLEC-NIVA Position”).
