We are looking to hire a Postdoctoral Researcher in “Oceanography, Mechatronics, Electronics or Measurement Technology” (https://hereon.de/career/vacancies/024337/index.php.en).

The application period closes on 11 July 2023, and we are looking to hire as soon as possible. For more information, please contact Dr. Yoana G. Voynova (yoana.voynova@hereon.de) or Dr. Jochen Horstmann (jochen.horstmann@hereon.de).

Within the framework of a Helmholtz funding line to strengthen transfer and innovation, the marine research centers of the Helmholtz Association HEREON, AWI and GEOMAR are establishing an innovation platform for marine observation and sensor technology, in close cooperation with industry (in the field of marine observations), and with operators of ships and measurement platforms. The project will promote the participation of civil society in the collection of ocean data, with the long-term goal of establishing a visible innovation platform for the new blue economy.
