Potential areas of interest may include, but are by no means limited to, marine community ecology and evolution, trophic interactions, marine ecological genomics or proteomics, adaptation to climate change or conservation biology.
Fundamental research may be supplemented with policy related topics, for example invasive species, sustainable fisheries or ecosystem functioning and biodiversity in relation to climate change.

He/she has to attract new PhD projects and build up a leading international position in this field. He/she is an excellent teacher who can motivate students of different disciplines and he/she has to develop new courses on specific topics in the BSc and the MSc programmes. Teaching duties include the supervision of bachelor, master and PhD students. Organisational and management duties within the institute belong to the duties.
