Vacancy: Senior Research Associate in Ocean Biogeochemistry

Senior Research Associate in Ocean Biogeochemistry (Ref: RA1590) – The closing date is 12 March 2019.

Looking for a seagoing postdoctoral position on the Southern Ocean carbon sink?

This is your chance!

Applications are invited for the post of Senior Research Associate (SRA) to undertake research on the ocean carbon sink and downward carbon transport in sub-polar waters of the Southern Ocean. The SRA will work with me (Dorothee Bakker) on the NERC-funded CUSTARD (Carbon Uptake and Seasonal Traits of Antarctic Remineralisation Depth,, 2018-2022) project.

The SRA will participate in carbonate system measurements on the CUSTARD research cruise (November 2019 to January 2020) and the CUSTARD mooring recovery cruise (January 2020). The SRA will combine these observations with sensor data from the mooring and autonomous robotic gliders. The SRA will quantify seasonal CO2 air-sea fluxes and the contribution of the solubility, carbonate and soft tissue carbon pumps to seasonal carbon dynamics and downward carbon transport.

The closing date is 12 March 2019.

The position is available from 1 May 2019 for a period of 2 years.
