Postdoctoral Investigator (m/f/d) In the area of Submesoscale Dynamics and Ocean Color

Date 12.12.2018
Institute Institute of Coastal Research
Location Geesthacht

One scientific focus of the Institute is the investigation of submesoscale dynamics. In view of phytoplankton biomass dynamics, the remote sensing group at HZG uses spectral data obtained from satellites, aircrafts, a zeppelin, and drones as well as from in situ water sampling. One aim is to gain reliable ocean color information from the diverse platforms in optically complex waters and link these observations to the dynamics of submesoscale structures and their interaction with phytoplankton.

We invite applications for a postdoctoral investigator position (m/f/d) in the research group Remote Sensing at the Institute of Coastal Research with preferred starting date on March 1, 2019. The position is limited to three years. The place of employment is Geesthacht, Germany.

PhD Position (m/f) for Matter Transport and Ecosystem Dynamics

Date 29.11.2018
Institute Institute of Coastal Research
Location Geesthacht

The Institute of coastal research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht hosts a number of highly motivated and experienced researchers in the broad field of coastal research. Our research focus lies on numerical modelling of coastal processes with specific expertise in modelling of atmospheric and marine biogeochemistry and interactions between different environmental compartments on regional and coastal scales. At Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht we develop numerical models with the aim to determine the past and current state of the environment and to identify the major drivers for future changes in the system. more

Postdoctoral Investigator (m/f) In the area of Marine Biogeochemistry

Date 23.11.2018
Institute Institute of Coastal Research
Location Geesthacht

The Institute of Coastal Research investigates the physical and biogeochemical dynamics of the coastal ocean and the impact of anthropogenic influences on the natural state.

One scientific focus of the Institute of Coastal Research is the investigation of biogeochemical cycles in the coastal ocean. The Institute uses and develops the coastal observing system COSYNA, one of the densest in-situ measurement systems in the world. The remote sensing department develops algorithms to investigate ocean colour products for coastal regions. Within this framework, the study of carbon cycle dynamics in the coastal regions of the North Sea and beyond is a key research topic. This research is conducted using direct observations, proxies and numerical models to constrain carbon budgets terms and their variability. more
