Senior Research Associate in ocean biogeochemical processes, University of East Anglia, UK

Apply by 31 August.


The School of Environmental Sciences at the University fo East Anglia, UK, invites applications for a Senior Research Associate to undertake studies of ocean biogeochemical processes on the European continental shelf using autonomous vehicles.


The SRA will work with Professor Jan Kaiser and others on the project "AlterEco: An Alternative Framework to Assess Marine Ecosystem Functioning in Shelf Seas", funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The SRA will participate in the design and delivery of ocean glider campaigns in the North Sea. They will calibrate and analyse the resulting observations of nitrate, oxygen and chlorophyll a concentrations, and derive relationships between them as well as rates of relevant biogeochemical processes and ecosystem functions (e.g. productivity and respiration). They will document the work; write scientific publications for international, peer-reviewed journals and present the work at national and international conferences, and to stakeholders and policymakers.
