Ph.D. Position (m/f) in the area of Marine Biogeochemistry
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 main focus is the coastal observing system COSYNA (Coastal Observing System for Northern and Arctic Seas) for the systematic observation and modelling of the North Sea, Baltic Sea and Arctic coastal waters.
Within this framework, the main focus of the department of In-Situ Measurements is to study physical and biogeochemical processes in the North Sea with focus on the German Bight. We are looking for a qualified and motivated student to investigate coastal and regional carbon cycle dynamics in this particular area. The research project will have access to already available datasets from the COSYNA database, and will provide the opportunity to study carbon dynamics within the FerryBox network.
We invite applications for a Ph.D position (m/f) in the area of Marine Biogeochemistry starting as soon as possible. The position is initially limited to three years with the degree being awarded through the University of Hamburg or Kiel.
Deadline for applications is March 18, 2016
