The Department of Ocean System Research (OCS) is looking for a highly motivated post doc with a background in marine trace metal biogeochemistry and with an interest in the cycling of iron and iron isotopes as well as other bio-active metals.
Researchers in the Department Ocean System Research (OCS) study open-ocean processes from a variety of disciplines, ranging from physical and chemical oceanography, marine geology, paleoceanography to deep-sea ecology. We investigate the oceans in the past and present, to assess their future role. They make use of experiments and data collection during sea-going oceanographic research, as well as laboratory experiments and analyses in their home base on Texel.
“Trace metals and the Arctic-Atlantic gateway in a changing world, local processes and global connections (MetalGate)”. In this project candidate alongside the NOIV staff will investigate the cycling of iron and its isotopes as well as other bio-active metals in the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian-Sea region, the main gateway between the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean. We combine trace metal and isotopic measurements with temperature controlled bio-assays at ecologically relevant conditions and developed sampling techniques to study the processes and interactions in the benthic boundary layer.
Duration: A full-time employment for 1 year which will be extended for two more years.
