2-year, full-time, postdoc in ocean climate and biogeochemistry, NORCE Research, Bergen, Norway
DEADLINE: Friday, 11 December 2020
A 2-year postdoctoral researcher position (with a possibility for extension) is available in the research topic ocean climate and biogeochemistry analysis in a multi-model framework at the biogeochemistry group of NORCE Climate and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated climate scientist to work in the Norwegian Research Council funded project COLUMBIA (Constraining the large uncertainties in Earth system model projections with a big data approach). The project, comprises interdisciplinary teams from climatic and computing fields, aims to explore novel methodologies to identify systematic biases in ESMs that are robust across multiple scenarios, and subsequently incorporate relevant observational constrain to optimize their future projections in key ocean climate and biogeochemistry metrics.

1-year, full-time, postdoc in ocean carbon cycle, University of Delaware, Newark, DE, USA
DEADLINE: Thursday, 24 December 2020
The University of Delaware (UD) School of Marine Science and Policy invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar position in ocean carbon cycle research. The position is available immediately. The successful candidate will work on ocean carbon cycle research and analytical methods. Specifically, the postdoc will work on improving a novel analytical method that simultaneously measures the concentration and stable isotope of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) with high precision and accuracy at sea and apply the method to fieldwork for ocean carbon cycle research including estimation of anthropogenic CO2 uptake in the Atlantic Ocean and/or estimation of terrestrial and ocean margin carbon export fluxes to the open ocean. The postdoctoral scholar will make use of state-of-the-art analytical and experimental facilities in Dr. Wei-Jun Cai’s Ocean Carbon Research Laboratory.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in either chemical oceanography, analytical chemistry, or a closely related field. The position will be located in the main campus of the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. The postdoc will attend field cruises in the South Atlantic Ocean and/or North American ocean margins and is also expected to lead first-authored publications. The appointment will be for one year, with continuation pending performance and funding for up to a total of three years.
Applications will remain open until filled. The original job posting is available here: https://careers.udel.edu/en-us/job/496197/post-doctoral-researcher
2-year, full-time, postdoc position in ocean modelling, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland
DEADLINE: Thursday, 24 December 2020
The Ocean Modelling group of the Climate- and Environmental Physics Division at the University of Bern is seeking applications for a postdoc position in the area of modeling marine ecosystem-carbon cycle-climate interactions. The research project will focus on quantifying and understanding past and future changes in ocean compound extreme events. Compound events are extremes in different hazards, such as warming, acidification, deoxygenation, and nutrient stress, occurring simultaneously or in close spatial/temporal sequence. The simultaneous occurrence of two or more extreme events can lead to especially severe impacts on marine organisms and ecosystem services.
We are looking for an outstanding postdoctoral researcher with a PhD in oceanography, Earth sciences, physics, mathematics, or related fields. Candidates with a strong background in climate modeling, the analysis of large datasets and in extreme value analysis are preferred. The position requires the ability and interest to work across disciplines, and the proven ability to work independently. Consideration of applications begins immediately. For more information on the position and application process, follow the link at: https://www.climate.unibe.ch/about_us/open_positions/jobpages/index_eng.html?jobid=pd_ocean2020
The position will stay open until filled.
