For leading the department “Marine Aquaculture for Sustainable Fisheries”. The workplace is in Bremerhaven, Germany. Starting date is as soon as possible.
Your duties will comprise the scientific orientation of the department and the management of staff and budget. You will be responsible for acquiring industrial and public-funded projects, dissemination of results in journals, at conferences, and in public media. IMARE acts as an interface between research and commercial application, so you will collaborate closely with industrial clients and interact with various disciplines of natural, engineering, economic and social sciences. In co-operation with the Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences you will supervise students at the levels of bachelor and master.
You will require a PhD in marine biology, fishery biology or a related subject, preferably with a focus on aquaculture with several years of work experience, ideally in applied research and industry. Experience in the supervision of personal is of advantage but not a necessary prerequisite. We expect you to have experience in writing proposals for public funded projects and in making acquisitions of industrial orders. Furthermore, we expect high flexibility and mobility and willingness to participate in sea-going expeditions over several days.
Your personal strengths are a high degree of self-motivation, creativity, communication skills, and assertiveness. If you are excited to work in applied science, want to take executive functions and are willing to pursuit new ideas with enthusiasm, then we look forward to your application. We offer a co-operative, open-minded, liberal working atmosphere and a diverse field of activity, excellent possibilities for networking in the industrial and scientific community as well as superb career prospects.
Please submit only copies of your application documents because submitted documents will be destroyed at the end of the application procedure. The payment will be according to the pay grade of the public service (TV-L). The position is temporary until the end of 2014. In the future, we aspire to combine this position with a professorship at the Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences and, if so, to convert it into a permanent position.
