Scripps Institution of Oceanography at University of California San Diego in La Jolla, California, USA, invites applications for one or more Institution-wide Postdoctoral positions in any of the major areas of research conducted at Scripps. Candidates are required to have a PhD degree in ocean, earth or atmospheric sciences, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, environmental policy or a related field conferred by November 30, 2020. Candidates are required to have no more than 3 years postdoctoral experience at the time of appointment. Scripps Postdoctoral scholars are expected to interact with existing programs. Research activities at Scripps can be explored by viewing profiles of the Principal Investigators at Scripps (https://scripps.ucsd.edu/people/faculty). The intention of this program is to expose early career postdocs to new research opportunities and the facilities available at SIO/UCSD. Awards are competitive with a major emphasis on potential for independent, creative research. The Postdoc positions are for one year, and award twelve months of salary with a minimum stipend of $62,000 plus benefits and a one-time research allowance of $5,000. An additional twelve months of support will be granted (subject to satisfactory review), totaling 24 months. Appointees are eligible for health insurance through UC San Diego.

2 full-time positions (PhD, Post-Doc) in ocean biogeochemical and optical modelling, Liege University, Belgium
DEADLINE: Friday, 15 November 2019
Please find herewith attached an announcement for 2 positions in ocean biogeochemical and optical modelling and earth observation analysis available at the Liege University in the frame of contracts with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS). A PhD fellowship and a 2-year post-dcotoral position are available at the Modelling for Aquatic Systems research group (MAST) from the University of Liège (ULiege), Belgium. The PhD fellowship is for developing and implementing an optical module in an existing tri-dimensional coupled physical –biogeochemical model that is used for environmental forecasting in the Black Sea in the frame of the marine Copernicus program (CMEMS). The physical model is the Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO) while the biogeochemical model is the BiogeochemicAl Model for Hypoxic and Benthic Influenced areas (BAMHBI). The post-doc's work will focus on understanding and assessing the Black Sea hydrodynamics and biogeochemical budgets (mainly oxygen and nitrogen) variability and trends on seasonal to climate scales combining Earth Observation analysis and numerical modelling.
