Job Opportunity: PostDoc in Biological Oceanography at GEOMAR, Germany

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel ,Germany, has a vacancy for a Post-doc researcher in the research unit “Biological Oceanography” of the research division “Marine Biogeochemistry”, starting on 1 October 2018.


Deadline: 30 June 2018


Job Description
Perform innovative research at the interface of plankton ecology and pelagic biogeochemistry through a combination of experimental approaches, field surveys in biogeochemical hotspot areas, and numerical simulations of relevant biogeochemical processes. Acquisition and analyses of comprehensive data sets from pelagic in situ mesocosm studies (“KOSMOS”), including further testing of hypotheses gained from these data sets in laboratory experiments. The overall aim is to achieve a process-based understanding of biotic responses to ocean change (including deliberate manipulations) and their impacts on plankton communities and biogeochemical cycling. Specific topics may include quantification of element fluxes and trophic transfer within pelagic food webs (rate measurements, isotopic tracers, genetic techniques) or organic matter export (sediment traps, sinking velocity, respiration rates).
