Post Doc Position in the Field of Geochemistry of Marine Carbon Capture and Storage, GEOMAR, Germany

The position will be filled within the research unit Marine Geosystems of the research division “Marine Biogeochemistry”. 

Deadline for applications: 31.08.2017


Job description

STEMM-CCS ( is a multi-disciplinary EU-funded project concerned with Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS). CCS has been identified as an important mitigation strategy to reduce anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and thereby combat the rising levels of atmospheric CO2 responsible for global climate change and ocean acidification.

The task of the advertised position is to assist in the development of monitoring strategies of CO2 seepage from seafloor using benthic lander measurements in combination with water column observations (e.g. geochemistry, current regimes). Results will be used to help define baseline scenarios for best practice methodologies and tools for baseline environmental monitoring relevant to offshore CCS. Spatial and temporal variability at all relevant scales with respect to physical, chemical and biological parameters will be determined. Read more.
