AAU: 3 Assistant/Associate Professors Marine and Maritime Studies (FIN)

Three (3) Assistant/Associate Professors in Marine and Maritime Studies (Tenure Track)

The three appointed Assistant/Associate Professors will form the backbone of Åbo Akademi University’s research profile in Marine and Maritime studies (‘The Sea’), which is the most recent strategic expansion based on a major grant from the Academy of Finland. The grant foresees the establishment of three new Assistant/Associate tenure track Professorships which, after successful attainment of individually set goals, will lead to full Professorships. At the same time, Åbo Akademi University is recruiting visiting Professors who will support and further strengthen the profile.

THE THREE POSITONS AND FIELDS OF ACTIVITIES:

Assistant/Associate Professor in Marine Ecology

All areas of marine ecology will be considered, but candidates whose research focuses on coastal and archipelago ecosystems, in particular structural and functional aspects of biodiversity in relation to natural and anthropogenic environmental stressors, and/or interdisciplinary aspects of indicators and decision support systems in relation to governance and management options for the marine environment, will be given priority.
The appointment is expected to begin on March 1, 2018.

Assistant/Associate Professor in Industrial Management

The appointed Assistant/Associate professor will contribute to the Centre of Excellence with cutting-edge research in the area of research on sustainable, large-scale infrastructure systems, particularly within seaborne transportation and energy (such as seamless end-to-end logistics including both tangible and intangible flows).

The appointment is expected to begin on September 3, 2018.

Assistant/Associate Professor in Public Administration/Political Science

The appointed Assistant/Associate Professor will contribute to the Centre of Excellence with cutting-edge research in the area of governance of sea areas, in theory and in practice, including analysis over human – environment interaction on different societal and natural scales.
