The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is beginning its Sixth Assessment cycle. Working Group I (WGI) assesses the physical scientific aspects of the climate system and climate change.
The WGI Technical Support Unit (TSU), which provides the scientific, technical and organizational support of the activities and products of the WGI, is located at the University of Paris-Saclay, France.
GEOMAR is looking for a motivated and ambitious postdoctoral scientist in Earth System Modeling within the German PalMod project. This position is initially limited to 3 years and is devoted to understanding the role and mechanisms of the carbon cycle-climate feedback during glacial cycles, with the specific goal to investigate the effects of changes in elemental stoichiometry of marine plankton dynamics in response to changes in environmental conditions.
Filter feeders such as sponges and corals are the backbone of rich epibenthic communities, but the processes governing the fluxes of organic and inorganic materials across the epibenthic filter are only poorly understood. This PhD position will close this gap for a range of filter-feeding communities, using in situ methods to study the role of the cold-water coral Desmophyllum dianthus as a filter for organic material in Chile, and the role of heterotrophy in allowing coral calcification in acidified waters.
The research unit in GEOMAR Kiel are seeking an experienced candidate with demonstrated expertise in marine natural product chemistry/biotechnology and project management to carry out project management and research tasks in two European blue biotechnology projects funded by INTERREG BSR (Baltic Blue Biotechnology Alliance) and Horizon2020 (BLUE&GREEN).
