PhD position (m/f) in the research area of ocean colour remote sensing and phytoplankton in coastal waters

Date 30.07.2018
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.

The Remote Sensing Group at the Institute of Coastal Research of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht has an open PhD position (m/f) for coastal phytoplankton research based on remote sensing of ocean colour. We are interested in the spatial and temporal patterns of algal blooms in coastal seas, especially their origin and phenology in relation to storm or flood events. Satellites sensors provide adequate ocean colour observations on different spatiotemporal scales in a challenging environmental within optically complex waters, stratification, and coastal bathymetry. The biological response due to events will be quantified using additional oceanographic and climatological data.

We invite applications for a PhD position (m/f) in the research area of ocean colour remote sensing and phytoplankton in coastal waters with preferred starting date on November 1st, 2018. The position is initially limited to three years with the degree being awarded through the University of Kiel. The place of employment is Geesthacht, Germany.
