Shaping European Research Leaders for Marine Sustainability (SEAS) is a postdoctoral research fellowship program for 37 fellows launched and managed by the University of Bergen. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement #101034309.

In this second call, open August 1st to October 31st, 2022, we invite talented experienced researchers to apply for 23 fellowships. Successful candidates will be employed in 3-year fixed-term full-time postdoctoral research fellow positions at UiB. Individual contracts may, under certain conditions, be extended by up to one year if funded from other sources than the SEAS program.

The SEAS program offers:

  • high-quality inter- and transdisciplinary research and training opportunities in the area of marine sustainability supported by a supervision and inter-sectoral mentoring scheme

  • opportunity to transfer knowledge and skills between disciplines, organisations and sectors

  • a regional ecosystem of marine actors

  • structured skill-based training

  • high-quality working conditions

  • personal career support

  • academic freedom

  • equal opportunities


Please note

  • The application process is time-demanding.

  • The application process requires a close dialogue with name-given available faculty supervisor or contact who, close to the deadline, must sign a supervisor match declaration if an application is to be eligible.

  • That some fields of research, especially within sensitive technology areas, might be enforced by Norwegian and international regulations regarding Control of the Export of Strategic Goods, Services, and Technology. Candidates who by assessment of the application and attachment are seen to conflict with the criteria in these regulations might be prohibited from recruitment to UiB.


Applicants must hold a PhD degree in a relevant field prior to the application deadline or alternatively document that the thesis has been defended successfully, or that the dissertation is currently being evaluated by the PhD evaluation body of their academic institution. It is a condition of employment that the PhD must have been awarded.
