The College of Science and the School of Coastal and Marine Systems Science (SCMSS) at Coastal Carolina University invites applications for a 9-month tenure-track faculty position with expertise in aquatic and/or coastal biogeochemistry. Appointment will be at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor depending on experience and will begin Spring 2017.
Final chance for comment of the oceanographic community: Implementation plan for NASA-funded “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing” (EXPORTS)
The goal of the “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing” (EXPORTS) field campaign is to develop a predictive understanding of the export and fate of net primary production and its implications for the ocean’s carbon cycle. EXPORTS builds upon decades of NASA-supported research assessing global NPP. The EXPORTS Science Plan has already been thoroughly vetted by the community.
NASA formed a Science Definition Team (SDT) to draft an Implementation Plan for EXPORTS. A draft of that plan is now available for comment.

Job opportunity: Postdoc position (2yrs) in paleo biogeochemical modeling at University of Kiel, Germany
The position is in the framework of the Priority Program 'Antarctic research with comparative investigations in Arctic ice areas' (ANTARCTIC; SPP 1158) (website in German) funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG).
An ocean biogeochemical model will be further developed (inclusion of Si-Isotopes) and applied to different climate/ocean circulation regimes to investigate changes in water mass structure and nutrient utilization.
