PostDoc a Geospatial Engineer v ráji na Zemi (Reunion)

Univerzita na francouzském ostrově Reunion, který se nachází východně od Madagaskaru hledá PostDoca (3ks) a GISáka – více níže. Pokud se alespoň trochu domluvíte francouzsky, tak to zní jako práce snů…

Applicants are invited for three Postdoctoral Research Positions (geography, ecology and law) and one Geospatial Engineer Position who will join researchers at the University of Reunion Island (France) in the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) ( as part of the OCEAN METISS project funded by the European Commission – European Maritime and Fisheries Fund. This project is one of four European projects on Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) to be selected for funding by EASME (

The successful applicants will be based at the University of La Réunion, and will actively participate in project-related activities, which involve cooperation between the Regional Council of Reunion Island, French State institutions – based in Reunion Island under the aegis of the Secretary General for Regional Affairs (SGAR) – and the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC).

Overall, the OCEAN METISS project aims to support the integrated economic development of the South West Indian Ocean Basin and the EU. To this end, the project will develop 1) MSP as a method to operationalize a blue economy strategy; 2) the sharing of international experience and active networking in favour of a blue economy; 3) the mutualizing of local, national and international human, scientific and technical resources; 4) capacity building to ensure higher performance results in the analysis, development and implementation of the blue economy; 5) the emergence of projects that may be entitled to further funding beyond the duration of the OCEAN METISS project.

The OCEAN METISS project implements MSP as a framework for consistent, transparent, sustainable and evidence-based decision-making, as stated in the 2014 EU directive on MSP for instance. To meet this objective, the various partners will apply a multi-scale approach to marine spatial planning involving both a large scale (WIO) and small scale (Reunion Island coastlines) approach. Participants will be associated to the project in working groups linked to each work package (WP). The first three thematic work packages are sectorial and aim to set baselines for the project: WP1 Ecosystem and Energy; WP2 Sustainable Development of Economic Activities; WP3 Research and Innovation. The following three work packages are cross-sectoral and aim to develop the blue economy strategy: WP4 Governance; WP5 Risks and Conflicts of Practices; WP6 Cooperation and Networking.
