An excerpt from the weblink above --
In February 2013, the Baltic Sea Centre formed a strategic partnership with
the BalticSea2020 foundation to form Baltic Eye for action oriented
analysis, synthesis and communication. Stockholm University performs
comprehensive and powerful Baltic Sea research, however, resources for
synthesis and communication are yet not on par with basic research.
Therefore, the foundation allocated 20 million SEK per year for Baltic Eye
over a five-year period. Ample funding is also set aside for top-notch
international workshops, communication events and outreach products to
address important issues that can help to find the best solutions for a
better environmental state of the Baltic Sea.
Specific qualifications required to be considered as a candidate for
employment include at least a PhD within the subject area of the position.
We seek persons with a strong interest and ambition for communication and
outreach, that in close collaboration with others in our research and
communication team can:
* strongly communicate research results that have the potential to
influence or form policy decisions for an improved Baltic Sea environment.
* develop pro-active communication and policy options for societal
choices and communicate Baltic Sea environmental action challenges and
* lead scientific thematic syntheses including assessments on measures
and solutions and international workshops on environmental Baltic Sea
issues, as well as write scientific publications on these subjects.
* develop integrated approaches for environmental management and
measures within the Baltic Sea and its catchment.
* assess the implications of, for example, the EU Common Agricultural
Policy, Common Fisheries Policy, the Habitat directive and other related
directives on environmental management within the Baltic Sea and its
