Choose the University of Gothenburg for Your Career in Science!

Welcome to the Faculty of Science. We offer different positions for advancing your science career – from postdoc positions and research fellowships to senior lectureships and full professorships.

The Faculty of Science includes all major subject areas in the fields of mathematics and natural sciences. With 5,800 students and 800 employees, it is the second largest Faculty at the University of Gothenburg.

Should you join one of the departments at the Faculty of Science, you will find an internationally-oriented environment that fully endorses equality and diversity throughout the organisation. We are confident that we can offer you an excellent all-round experience – both professionally and personally.

Nevertheless, we realise that choosing a career in a foreign country is a big step and raises many questions about what to expect. Thus, we would like to give you a general idea of what we and Gothenburg have to offer in terms of benefits and life in general for you and your accompanying spouse/partner. Also, we can offer relocation services as well as advise about research funding and administration.
