Job Offer in Geomicrobiology/ Environmental Microbiology

PhD position at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München

"The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at LMU Munich invites applications for one PhD position in Geomicrobiology/ Environmental Microbiology to experimentally investigate the diversity and activity of marine microbial communities in the context of ocean deoxygenation.

Together with warming and acidification, ocean deoxygenation is considered one of the three major impacts of climate change in global oceans according to IPCC, and a main research scientific topic for organizations such as UNESCO or IUCN. In the DFG Emmy-Noether Research Group in Biogeochemistry and Climate Change, we investigate the effects of ocean deoxygenation on dissolved organic matter (DOM) sequestration, due to interactions with microbial communities and the marine carbon and sulfur cycles. By combining field work experiments with state-of-art laboratory techniques from different disciplines, we aim to decipher new links between microbes and DOM, in the context of a changing, deoxygenated ocean."

Job Offer in paleoclimate modelling: sea-ice and past ocean oxygenation

PhD position at the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society at the Heriot-Watt University  

"Are you interested in using climate models to help us understand the future? Consider applying for this PhD and join the Past Climate Change team at the Lyell Centre (Heriot-Watt University).

We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate who will analyse the impact of different past (warm) climate states on sea-ice and effects on seawater oxygenation through model simulations."

Job Offer in paleoceanographic proxies and past climate change: Past ocean oxygenation

PhD position at the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society at the Heriot-Watt University  

"Are you interested in using past paleoceanographic reconstructions to help us understand our future planet? We are looking for an enthusiastic team-member to join the Past Climate Change Group https://pastclimates.site.hw.ac.uk/ at the Lyell Centre (Heriot-Watt, Edinburgh UK) as a PhD researcher. The project offers opportunities to work on data synthesis, proxy development and application."

Job Offer in ocean biogeochemical dynamics

Postdoctoral researcher position at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of St Andrews

"We are seeking a talented and creative postdoctoral researcher to work on ocean biogeochemical dynamics using observations, numerical models, and theory. Candidates should have a high level of technical skill in data analysis, and a strong grasp of ocean circulation and biogeochemistry. The position is initially available for two years, with the possibility of extension.  

The ocean plays a fundamental role in global biogeochemical cycling, with impacts on climate, planetary habitability, and ecosystem dynamics. Large-scale changes in these cycles – such as that of carbon and oxygen – are being observed or are predicted in the coming decades and centuries. For example, widespread deoxygenation and acidification are expected by the end of the 21st century, with potentially severe ramifications for both marine life and climate feedbacks. Understanding the mechanisms behind these changes is inhibited by a chronic sparsity of observations. Novel theoretical and analytical approaches are required to deepen our understanding of oceanic biogeochemical cycles and their observed changes, and to predict their future evolution and the consequences therein."

Job Offer in ocean coupled physical-biogeochemical modelling

PhD or mobility postdoctoral position: "Predicting marine deoxygenation from earth observation data using machine learning."

"A 4-year PhD or a 2-year postdoctoral position is available at the Liège University (MAST group, Department of Astrophysics, Geophysics and Oceanography) to develop prediction tools of deoxygenation. The developed approach will combine earth observation (EO), ARGO and mechanistic model products with machine learning to predict coastal hypoxia and sub-surface oxycline variability. The position is offered in the frame of the “Multiple Threats on Ocean Health”(MiTHo) research project funded by the European Space Agency."

Job Offer in ocean coupled physical-biogeochemical modelling

PhD or mobility postdoctoral position: "Projecting the Black Sea’s ecosystem and ecosystem services in a future climate. Trends, tipping points and resilience assessment."

"A 4-year PhD or 2-year postdoctoral position is available at the Liège University (MAST group, Department of Astrophysics, Geophysics and Oceanography) in collaboration with the Stockholm Resilience centre to perform and analyse regional climate model projections over the Black Sea.
The research project aims at performing an ensemble of model simulations of the physical and biogeochemical state of the Black Sea over different scenarios of atmospheric conditions and river discharges. The modelling system consists of a (one-way) coupled atmosphere-ocean model. The atmospheric model is the regional atmospheric model (MAR), the oceanographic model couples the Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO) hydrodynamical model and the BiogeochemicAl Model for Hypoxic and Benthic Influenced areas (BAMHBI). The different components of the modelling system are run at the Liège University in the frame of European projects."

Job Offer in Fish Modelling in the Black Sea

Opening of one position for a 4-year Ph.D. or 3-year mobility postdoc for working on Fish Modelling in the Black Sea

"This position is offered in the frame of the recently funded 4-year Horizon-Europe project NECCTON  (New Copernicus Capability for Trophic Ocean Networks) and is available under a joint supervision at the Liège University (MAST-FOCUS group, Department of Astrophysics, Geophysics and Oceanography), the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) in the Nederland and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (US). The research project aims at modelling the dynamics of selected fish species (e.g. anchovies, horse mackerel, sprat) in the Black Sea to assess the impact of past and projected environmental changes (e.g. deoxygenation, warming, fishing) on fish distribution and stocks."
