Two 4-year, full-time PhD positions in Marine Biogeochemistry, Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences (IOPAN), Sopot, Poland
DEADLINE: Thursday, 27 August 2020
The main goal of the first doctoral dissertation will be to characterize the marine CO2 system variability in regions affected by the release of organic matter from thawing permafrost. Particular attention will be paid to quantifying the influence of organic acids and organic matter remineralization on seawater pH and the air/sea CO2 exchange. Field studies will be conducted in Spitsbergen fjords, while the analytical part in the laboratories of IOPAN in Sopot. Details of the second position can be found in the attached announcement. The main goal of the second doctoral dissertation will be to characterize bioavailability (lability) of the organic matter released from permafrost and to assess its acid-base properties. Field studies will be conducted in Spitsbergen and Greenland, while the analytical part in the laboratories of IOPAN in Sopot. More information on the position and application requirements can be found in the attached announcement.
