Stockholm University has inaugurated a comprehensive graduate school initiative emphasizing marine, climate, and environmental themes. It aims to deep-dive into the specific challenges of the Baltic Sea amidst our transforming climate. The program intends to recruit 12 new doctoral students across multiple departments, including natural sciences, economic sciences, and legal sciences.

These doctoral positions will be dedicated to individual research projects concerning the Baltic Sea, but they will also be integrated into an interdisciplinary educational scheme. Here, climate-related alterations in coastal ecosystems will be addressed, examined, and discussed from various perspectives.

Positions are open across a spectrum of specialties:

  • Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography
  • Business Administration
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Environmental Law
  • Environmental Science (with focuses on aerosol emissions, chemical risk management, and mercury in coastal ecosystems)
  • Geochemistry
  • Physical Geography
  • Marine Biology (with two distinct areas of focus)
  • Sediment/Ocean methane dynamics.

Prospective candidates will be nurtured within a collaborative ecosystem comprising doctoral students, Stockholm University researchers, and the international research center, CoastClim. The curriculum includes seminars, workshops in scientific writing and presentation, and field trips to the Askö marine research station.

The application deadline is set for November 3, 2023.
