(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Analytical Chemistry

The position will be associated with the project “Persistent organic chemicals in high-altitude atmosphere and ecosystems” financed by the Swedish Research Council FORMAS. Persistent organic chemicals (POCs) were recently found also at high altitude at the world’s highest atmospheric observatory (5240 masl), the Chacaltaya GAW station (CHC) in Bolivia. This project examines the hypothesis that the free troposphere is a critical long-range transport medium and leads to increasing POC contamination and subsequent risk to humans and ecosystems at high altitudes. The project aims to understand FT-mediated pollutant transport and potential sources, through close collaboration with atmospheric, meteorological, geological, and environmental scientists from European and South American institutes.

Deadline : 30 November 2022.

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Ecology

The position will be associated with the project “Developing a cost-efficient control program for the invasive plant Lupinus polyphyllus” financed by the Swedish Transport Administration and the research council FORMAS. The overall aim of the project is to develop a cost-efficient program to control the invasive species Lupinus polyphyllus in Sweden. To reach this aim, we use a two-fold approach. First, we examine in what geographic regions and under what environmental conditions that Lupinus constitute a potential problem. Second, we assess how cost-efficient different management practices are to reduce long-term population growth rates in areas where the species constitute a potential problem.

Deadline : 30 November 2022

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher for LSST DESC

We are searching for a highly motivated individual to work partly on innovative research projects and partly to develop scientific software infrastructure for the international Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC), which aims to make high-accuracy measurements of fundamental cosmological parameters using data from the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) observed by the Vera C. Rubin Observatory. The Vera C. Rubin Observatory is a next-generation astronomical facility currently under construction in Chile. Rubin’s LSST will be one of the largest and most comprehensive astronomy surveys of its kind, enabling countless discoveries in astronomy and physics. To take best advantage of the LSST data, DESC develops new methods for obtaining state-of-the-art, robust cosmology constraints and builds robust, high-throughput software pipelines to simulate, re-process and analyze images and catalogs at LSST scale.

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Arctic Paleoceanography

Reconstructing Arctic sedimentary processes using X-ray CT and hyperspectral imaging of marine and lacustrine cores.  The Department of Geological Sciences (IGV) is expanding the analytical capacity of its marine and lacustrine core-processing laboratory. We are adding an X-ray CT scanner and a Hyperspectral infrared (IR) core imaging system, as well as upgrading our current Multi-Sensor core logger and XRF-core scanner. The X-ray CT system provides detailed images of sedimentary structures, and allows volume reconstructions of pore space properties, and quantification of important sedimentary features (i.e. ice-rafted detritus and bioturbation). Hyperspectral infrared imaging of marine and lacustrine sediments is gaining increased popularity and has been used to quantify the amount, type and source of organic matter (marine vs terrestrial), and identify crypto-tephra that can provide critical geochronological information for paleoceanographic studies.

Deadline : 1 December 2022.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral fellow to the project Gastronomic Landscapes

In the project, we are seeking to use the lens of gastronomy as an entry point for possible solutions to the challenges of the global food system, highlighting how culinary craftsmanship and innovation, from cooks in local communities to chefs of leading restaurants, have the potential to drive shifts towards sustainability. We are hiring a Postdoctoral fellow to focus on the role of gastronomy for biosphere stewardship in land- and seascapes. The research will focus on learning from case studies of links between landscape/seascape management and gastronomy. Diverse knowledge systems have developed techniques for getting both nutrition and cultural satisfaction from diverse land- and seascapes, in ways that are also embodied in local cuisines. The Postdoctoral fellow will also analyze the potential role of gastronomy in incentivizing changes in dietary patterns, from food with high to low environmental impact.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral fellows with orientation toward environmental research in human science (humanities, law, social science) (2 persons)

This call is part of Stockholm University’s strategic inter-disciplinary initiative in environmental research in human science, which comprises environmental humanities, law and social science. In a broad sense, this research aims to understand and explain the relationship between human beings, society, environment and nature from a range of theoretical, empirical and methodological traditions and perspectives. Environmental research in human science is an evolving inter-disciplinary field that examines what governs humans’ perceptions, values and behavior and ways of collective organization in relationship to the environment, nature, natural resources and sustainable development. The overarching aim of the strategic initiative is to deepen our understanding of the challenges and possibilities of global environmental change found across different scholarly fields and disciplines in humanities, social science and law. The University’s efforts to strengthen environmental research in human science are defined by trans-disciplinary exchanges of knowledge between different academic disciplines. The idea is that the postdoctoral fellow should collaborate across departments and faculties and also with societal actors. In this way the call can contribute by establishing new internal and external networks and platforms for environment and sustainability. The research issues in this call are not only related to local and national environmental issues but also international and global challenges.

Deadline : 2022-11-30.

Romance Linguistics consists of French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, and is a vigorous research environment. The research area covers the following specializations: discourse and interaction linguistics, historical linguistics and editorial philology, sociolinguistics with a focus on variation and language contact, second language acquisition and learning, syntax and semantics, translation studies and contrastive linguistics. For further details, see our homepage Romance Linguistics.

(12) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Microbiology

The position will be associated with the interdisciplinary project “Safe Water Reuse in a Changing Environment – Microbial Degradation of Contaminants in European Rivers”. Increasing water reuse is at the heart of Europe’s climate change adaptation strategy to counter water scarcity. Sustainable and safe reuse is hampered by a complex mixture of contaminants that reach recipient waters due to their incomplete elimination in sewage treatment plants. Very little is known about their fate in the environment and the self-purification capacities of natural systems.

The project will combine molecular, chemical analytical and biogeochemical tools to generate and link knowledge on the interplay of microbial communities, carbon cycling and contaminant biodegradation in the aquatic environment – which is a crucial prerequisite for safe and sustainable reuse.
