MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellowship: Call for Proposals
DEADLINE: Saturday, 15 December 2018
The Smithsonian's Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network (TMON) invites proposals for the MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Proposals should advance the goals of the Marine Global Earth Observatory (MarineGEO), a Smithsonian-led worldwide research collaboration dedicated to understanding changes in and relationships among the biodiversity, structure, and functioning of coastal marine ecosystems at local to global scales using comparative approaches. The 2019 MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellowship is a two-year fellowship that specifically contributes to the goals of the Smithsonian's MarineGEO program. Proposals must focus on comparative research across habitats and/or geographic scales utilizing MarineGEO observatories. Applicants are encouraged to leverage existing MarineGEO resources like data, collaborative fieldwork, and well-established methods in their proposed work. Applicants should develop their project proposals in consultation with a TMON scientist. In particular, proposals should address one of the following MarineGEO priorities: (i) environmental-biodiversity coupling, (ii) ecosystem processes and functioning, (iii) coordinated networked experiment. For more information on the MarineGEO priorities, fellowship eligibility and the application process please see the site here: https://marinegeo.si.edu/marinegeo-postdoctoral-fellowship-call-proposals

Full-time or part-time, permanent Senior Researcher in ocean physics and biogeochemistry, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, UK
DEADLINE: Sunday, 16 December 2018
The Marine Physics and Ocean Climate (MPOC) Group at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton, UK, is looking for a talented observational physical oceanographer to join on a permanent basis to contribute to the leadership, management and delivery of projects. These projects, led by Dr Elaine McDonagh (Associate Head of MPOC) include: (i) Transient Tracer based investigation of Circulation and Thermal Ocean Change (TICTOC; http://projects.noc.ac.uk/tictoc/ ) that will investigate the distribution, evolution and controls of added (due to global warming) and redistributed (circulation-driven) temperature change; and (ii) Atlantic Biogeochemical (ABC) fluxes (https://www.rapid.ac.uk/abc/) that is adding carbon to the RAPID array and investigating the impact of circulation variability on the uptake of carbon in the North Atlantic. The role will focus on analysis of observations including those from GO-SHIP repeat hydrography, Argo and the RAPID array. This analysis will inform the role of circulation and water mass property variability on the oceanic uptake of heat and carbon. The starting salary for this position will be between £35,222 and £40,505 per annum (Band 5). Depending upon skills and experience, additional allowances may be available for exceptional candidates. Although the post is advertised as full-time, we would also consider part-time appointments with the option of job-sharing. For part time posts, the salary will be calculated on a pro rata basis and all part time employees will have full access to NERC benefits. Interviews will take place in December 2018 or January 2019.
