Starting September 1st, 2016, the research division “Marine Biogeochemistry” is offering a Postdoc Position to investigate marine nitrous oxide cycling in oxygen minimum zones. This position will be held in the ‘Chemical Oceanography’ and ‘Biogeochemical Modelling’ research units. The closing date for applications is 3rd august 2016. This position will combine field based measurements with modelling approaches. Under the guidance of Prof. Dr.
Several positions are open at the Institute of Marine Research, Norway's largest centre of marine science.
Chemical oceanography, trends in ocean acidification carbonate chemistry in Norwegian and polar waters, 2-year postdoc
The Institute of Marine Research (IMR) has available a 2 year position (with an option for 2 years extension), a postdoctoral related to studies of variations, drivers, and trends of ocean acidification and carbon chemistry in Norwegian waters and in the Arctic Ocean.
Recently funded by Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), ZIPLOc is a UK-based multi-institutional project, with strong collaborative links to partners at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (USA), Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences (USA) and Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environment (France). The aim is to combine novel observational and modelling experiments to quantify how phosphorus, zinc and iron co-limitation affects contemporary and future biological productivity.
The rapid warming of the Antarctic Peninsula, which occurred from the early-1950s to the late 1990s, has paused. Stabilisation of the ozone hole along with natural climate variability were significant in bringing about the change. Together these influences have now caused the peninsula to enter a temporary cooling phase. Temperatures remain higher than measured during the middle of the 20th Century and glacial retreat is still taking place.
