• Chercheur océanographie physique : pompe physique du carbone (H/F)
    Place: Département Oceanographie et Dynamique des Ecosystemes, Unité de recherche – Laboratoire d’océanographie physique et spatiale, Équipe de recherche «Océan hauturier et Interactions d’échelles océaniques, Brest, Bretagne, France.
    La personne recrutée développera des recherches pour comprendre le rôle de la dynamique océanique comme pompe physique du carbone. Les travaux pourront porter sur la quantification du stockage du CO2 via la caractérisation des sources et des puits, ainsi que les voies d’export expliquant les contrastes régionaux. Ils pourront également porter sur la quantification et la compréhension des changements en cours ou à venir. La problématique étant d’échelle globale, la personne recrutée pourra proposer un projet de recherche concernant l’océan global ou des chantiers plus régionaux.
    Application deadline: 5th April 2019, online.

  • Hydrodynamic modelling of flood risk mitigation by mangroves in a tropical river delta
    Place: University of Antwerp, Belgium.
    You will work on a PhD study (4 years) with the objective to conduct a hydrodynamic modelling study of a tropical river delta. More specifically, the aim is to elucidate how spatial planning of mangrove forest conservation (versus conversion to human land use) can constitute a nature-based strategy to mitigate flood risks that are increasing due to global change.
    Application deadline: Applications may only be submitted online https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/jobs/vacancies/ap/2019bapfwetef073/, and should include a copy of your CV and a motivation letter, before the closing date of 25 March 2019.

  • PhD position in Biogeochemistry/Marine Microbiology
    Place: The departments Biological Oceanography and Marine Chemistry of the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW), Germany.
    Marine oxygen minimum zones (OMZ) are important sites of trace gas production (e.g., N2O, CH4). In the project EVAR (Effects of variability in physical forcing on carbon and oxygen budgets; see https://www.io-warnemuende.de/evar.html ) we will investigate trace gas production in the OMZ of the Benguela upwelling system (Namibia). The PhD student will have the unique opportunities to work both in the groups « Microbial Ecology » and “Trace gas chemistry and to combine ship-based field work with lab experiments in order to investigate regulating mechanisms of trace gas production and to identify responsible microorganisms. In the frame of this project two ship expeditions of several weeks in Namibia and accompanying laboratory studies with microbial communities at IOW are planned. State-of-the-art trace gas analytics, stable isotope techniques and molecular microbial approaches will be applied. The successful applicant will work closely together with two PostDocs addressing microbial community functional analysis and trace gas transport and flux.
    Application deadline: Applicants are asked to send their complete applications (CV, copies of certificates, references) quoting the
