The Department of Biology at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in Odense invites applications for a position in the ecological research group starting in November 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter. The group holds several grants focusing on freshwater and coastal marine environments. These projects include aquatic habitat recovery involving lake and estuarine restoration, nutrient cycling, reestablishment of lakes and buffer zones along streams, phosphorus recovery from the environment, and effects of climate adaptation and urban discharge on the environment.

We seek an aquatic ecologist with excellent scientific and teaching achievements. The candidate should have scientific expertise at the interface between terrestrial and aquatic environments (streams and freshwater and estuarine wetlands). Candidates with skills in environmental dynamical modelling of nutrient cycling and water quality in these ecosystems will be preferred.
