PhD Position (m/f/d) in the area of Marine Biogeochemistry

Date 19.02.2019
Institute 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) for the systematic observation and modelling of the North Sea, Baltic Sea and Arctic coastal waters. One current project is to determine the carbon budget in the German Bight, aiming at a better understanding of the processes governing the sinks and sources in this region. The German Bight is an example of a very dynamic shelf sea region, influenced by outflow from major rivers like the Elbe, exchange with extensive tidal mud flats and marshes within the Wadden Sea, and coastal processes acting on different time scales, such as winds, tides and the residual circulation of the North Sea.

We invite applications for a PhD position (m/f/d) in the research group In Situ Measurements at the Institute of Coastal Research with preferred starting date on May 1, 2019. The position is limited to three years with the degree being awarded through the University of Kiel. Within this research group we are operating an intensive monitoring program measuring different carbon parameters onboard of commercial vessels (FerryBox systems, www.ferrybox.org) and on targeted research cruises.
