PhD-candidate position Biogeochemical Modelling, GEOMAR, Germany

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is offering a PhD-candidate position in Biogeochemical Modelling, starting on 1st July 2018.


Application Deadline: 20th April, 2018


Job Description
The successful candidate will integrate microbial, ecological and biogeochemical observations into a planktonic ecosystem model. An existing size-based model of the microbial plankton community will be merged with a model of optimal physiological acclimation. The PhD-candidate will calibrate the merged model with observational data and will apply the model for estimating multi-annual and seasonal variations in mass flux of carbon and nitrogen at a site in the Fram Strait. The planned study will focus on processes in the Arctic ocean and will be conducted in close collaboration with partners at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) Bremerhaven, University of Southampton (UK) and Marine Biological Association in Plymouth (UK).
