Job Opportunity: Post-doc position in Marine Science at Bar-Ilan University, Israel

A post-doc position is offered for two years, starting summer 2018, in the Environmental Radioisotope Geochemistry lab at Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel (http://biuradiolab.wixsite.com/radiolabbiu). The candidate will be involved in an interdisciplinary study of the biological pump and transport processes in the warm ultra-oligotrophic eastern Mediterranean Sea, which has been recently subjected to increasing anthropogenic pressure, such as extensive drilling for oil and gas and coastal water desalination.

 

The work will focus on a recently-deployed deep water observatory (‘DeepLev’), accompanied by monthly and seasonal cruises across the Levantine basin. The research will involve geochemical, microbiological and physical aspects.

 

Requirements include a recently-acquired Ph.D. (or expected within the next few months) in oceanography or earth sciences and leading abilities in field and lab work.

The qualified candidate will need to apply for the Mortimer Zuckerman STEM LEADERSHIP PROGRAM (http://zuckerman-scholars.org/programs/postdoctoral-scholars/) and submit the application through Bar Ilan University.

 

Deadline is June 1, 2018.
