Full-time postdoc in biogeochemical modelling, University of Alaska Fairbanks, USA
DEADLINE: Saturday, 14 March 2020
The International Arctic Research Center (IARC) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (USA) is recruiting a Post Doctoral Fellow to join the exciting and research oriented Biogeochemical Modeling and Ocean Acidification Team. IARC supports Arctic research, coordination and communication to help the nation and the world understand, prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change in the Arctic and beyond. The collaborative and inclusive environment at the IARC and within Alaska’s EPSCoR project “Fire and Ice”, which funds this position, will create opportunities to establish a career building and interdisciplinary science network.
As a candidate you must hold a PhD in oceanography or a related field and 2 years of research in a relevant scientific field. As part of this project, you will conduct regional biogeochemical modeling in the Gulf of Alaska. Under the guidance of Dr. Claudine Hauri, analyze a ~40 year long regional ocean-biogeochemical hindcast simulation to study the influence of freshwater and large-scale climate drivers on the inorganic carbon and nutrient dynamics, and coastal ecosystem as a whole. The work will also include improvement of the biogeochemical model based on new field observations from the project. This position will involve biogeochemical modeling, data-model comparison, model output analysis, and publishing.
To apply for this position, please provide a cover letter, resume, and contact information for three professional references with your application. Please submit your application no later than 3/14/2020 at 11:55 PM Alaska Time. The review of this posting will start on 3/15/2020. This posting will be closed once it is filled.

1-yr Postdoctoral Researcher in biogeochemical modelling, University of Connecticut, Groton, CT, USA
DEADLINE: Friday, 20 March 2020
The coastal biogeochemical dynamics Lab at the University of Connecticut invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher with an interest in oxygen dynamics modelling to participate in an NSF-funded project about regional modeling of hypoxia in the Southern Benguela Upwelling System. This position will provide an opportunity to advance the understanding of the complex oxygen and nutrient dynamics through model-driven hypothesis testing. The successful candidate will have a working knowledge of ocean nutrient and oxygen biogeochemistry, expertise in computational methods, and model evaluation. Preference will be given to candidates with experience with Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS). The position will be located at the regional campus at Avery Point working predominately with the laboratories of Samantha Siedlecki and Julie Granger, with opportunities to travel to South Africa to work with colleagues there. The post is initially for one year with the possibility of renewal.
Applications are due by 20 March 2020. For more information on duties and responsibilities, required qualifications and application instructions, please follow this link: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/14145
