3-year, PhD position in ocean carbon research, MPI-Meteo, Hamburg, Germany
DEADLINE: Monday, 15 March 2021
The International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modelling offers a 3-year PhD position in Oceanography to work on a project entitled "A novel machine learning reconstruction of the air-sea CO2 flux over the entire global ocean." The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Peter Landschützer to build on the 2-step SOM-FFN machine learning method that has been successfully applied to reconstruct the open ocean carbon sink from surface ocean observations and include the coastal ocean as well as marginal seas to reconstruct the global ocean to close current research gaps. The project aims to investigate the inter-annual through decadal variations and its drivers over the past 40 years as well as a quantification of its uncertainty and provide annual flux updates to the Global Carbon Budget. Furthermore, the successful candidate will investigate the differences in time and space between the CO2 fluxes at the sea surface and changes in the ocean interior carbon distribution.
Application deadline: 15 March 2021. Follow this link to get more details on the application requirements and to submit your application: https://mpimet.mpg.de/en/science/imprs-esm/how-to-apply#c24411
