Data Manager

An opportunity exists for an experienced data manager to implement and integrate systems, practices and processes for the effective management of scientific data and other key business information assets within a world-leading marine science organisation.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with strong data management skills and an interest in using those skills in the context of marine and freshwater environmental management in the UK, Europe, and internationally. Sigue leyendo

Postdoctoral Research Fellow Coastal Biogeochemistry

The Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research in the School of Environmental Science and Management at Southern Cross University invites applications for a 3-year post-doctoral research position in coastal biogeochemistry.

The Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research was a major contributor to the University’s ERA submission in Geochemistry that received a rating of “outstanding performance well above world standard”. The Centre has outstanding facilities including new, purpose-built experimental, preparation and analytical inorganic and organic laboratories that house state-of-the-art research instrumentation. The Centre has a number of post-graduate, post-doctoral and senior researchers working in similar areas, which provides an environment for intellectual stimulation and opportunities for exchange of ideas and collaboration.

Vacancies at The Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change (NorMER)

8 PhD and 4 Postdoc positions are now available in the new Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change (NorMER), with more positions opening next year.

A major challenge to managers and scientists today is to identify ways that oceans can provide food and other services in a sustainable way under changing climatic and socioeconomic conditions. As a changing climate and high harvesting put increased pressure on marine resources, scientists of the future need the cross-disciplinary skills to combine physical, biological, and social/economic science to give appropriate management advice.

Sea Ice Physics

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS), part of the Natural Environment Research Council, aims to undertake a world-class programme of scientific research, and to sustain for the UK an active and influential regional presence and a leadership role in Antarctic affairs.

Background: ICEBell is a UK NERC-funded programme partnering researchers at BAS and the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) to investigate sea ice thickness and snow depth distribution and processes in the Bellingshausen Sea, Antarctica. This includes AUV multibeam sonar surveys of the ice underside during a 30-day dedicated cruise aboard the RRS James Clark Ross, and contemporaneous airborne lidar surveys of the ice surface. This project involves a variety of national and international partners including researchers at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Danish Technical University, University of Manitoba and University of Texas San Antonio.

University Lectureship in Palaeoclimatology/Palaeoceanography

Applications are invited for a University Lectureship in Palaeoclimatology/Palaeoceanography to be held in the Department of Earth Sciences. We welcome applications from candidates with an outstanding record of research in field-, laboratory- or computationally- based aspects of past climate change. The Department has a strong tradition of research in this area; for example, in the development and applications of oxygen isotope systematics and stratigraphy, the use of marine and terrestrial archives of past climate change, reconstruction from observations of ocean circulation and ocean chemistry over a range of timescales, and their role in the climate system. The Godwin Laboratory for Palaeoclimate Research houses state-of-the-art facilities for geochemical, isotopic and sedimentological studies. Sigue leyendo
