Tenure Track Assistant Professor - Marine Ecological Genetics/Genomics - U. Groningen/CEES, The Netherlands

Job description

The Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Studies (CEES) at the University of Groningen has a vacancy for a tenure track assistant professor in Marine Ecological Genetics. CEES offers excellent opportunities and infrastructure for experimental research in the fields of ecology and evolution. Research programmes range from marine to terrestrial ecosystems and from polar to tropical regions. Research is pursued in collaboration with, among others, the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research and European and non-European research institutions. CEES invites applications for a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in Marine Ecological Genetics as part of the research group Marine Evolution and Conservation (MarECon). We seek a new faculty member with a background in population genetics and genomics of pelagic marine animals. Specific (but not exclusive) focus-areas include palaeogenetics and adaptation to climate change. Experience in "next generation sequencing technologies" and bioinformatics is highly desirable. The applicant's research is expected to contribute to the existing programme and expertise, while simultaneously bringing something new and complementary.


Applicants must have a PhD degree and a strong record of research accomplishments appropriate to their career stage. The successful candidate will actively participate in the teaching and research programmes of the faculty and the Center for Ecological and Evolutionary Studies (CEES).

Candidates will need to have the following qualifications:

  • a doctorate in the field of marine biology with special interest in population, evolutionary genetics/genomics, community genetics/genomics or related field
  • two or more of years of experience outside The Netherlands in a post-doctoral capacity or experience at another educational institution
  • research, teaching and organizational experience appropriate to career stage
  • research accomplishments, as expressed in a list of publications appropriate to career stage
  • evidence of successful acquisition of external funding appropriate to career stage.
