Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral position in Biogeochemical Ocean Productivity Research, GEOMAR, Germany

Deadline: July 23, 2019

 

The research unit Chemical Oceanography of the research division Marine Biogeochemistry is offering a Postdoctoral position in Biogeochemical Ocean Productivity Research at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel.

 

Topic of Position: Investigations into control of surface ocean productivity by trace elements and nutrients

 

Starting: May 1, 2020

 

Job Description / Duties
The work of our team focuses on the role of the oceans in the global carbon cycle, and the biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nutrients and trace elements and their interactions with ocean biology. We combine developments of analytical techniques and novel sensors, with ocean observations and laboratory experiments.

The candidate will investigate the behaviour, fate and ecological effects of trace elements and nutrients in the surface ocean. In particular, the controlling role of trace elements and nutrients on surface ocean productivity and community composition will be investigated. Field work opportunities are available through three funded GEOTRACES section cruises (Indian and Pacific Oceans). State of the art analytical techniques are available to undertake ocean observations, experiments and data handling. The candidate will perform ocean observations and experiments, laboratory studies and analyses, with the assistance of technical staff and subsequent data analysis, interpretation and scientific manuscript publication. The candidate is also expected to submit research proposals. Supervision and co-supervision of students and researchers is envisaged.
