Postdoctoral Investigator (m/f/d)

Date 18.04.2019
Administration Institute of Coastal Research
Location Geesthacht

One scientific focus of the Institute of Coastal Research is the coastal observing system COSYNA (Coastal Observing System for Northern and Arctic Seas, www.cosyna.de) for the systematic observation and modelling of the North Sea, Baltic Sea, and Arctic coastal waters. A major component is the automated underway FerryBox system (www.ferrybox.org) mounted on ships of opportunity. The German Bight is a dynamic shelf sea region, influenced by outflow from the Elbe River, exchange with tidal mud flats and marshes within the Wadden Sea, and coastal processes acting on different time scales.

We are looking for a qualified and motivated scientist to investigate biogeochemical processes with focus on the carbon dynamic and budget in coastal areas and the coupling to physical processes. The successful applicant will analyse and assess data from FerryBoxes and research cruises and will use statistical methods as well as biogeochemical and ecosystem models in collaboration with other scientists.

We invite applications for a Postdoctoral position (m/f) in the area of Marine Biogeochemistry with preferred starting date on August 1, 2019. The position is limited to two years.
The place of employment is Geesthacht, Germany. more
