The Department of Ocean Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems (OBE) at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton, UK, is looking for 4 Principle Investigators to join the dynamic and growing team of scientists, technicians and students specialising in observation and model-based research into climate-relevant marine biogeochemistry, with funding from both national and international agencies. The group has a significant carbon cycle based research programme, a strong focus examining the role of ocean biology in global biogeochemical cycles (particularly in the downward settling of particulate matter as part of the biological carbon pump), and a developing programme investigating anthropogenic pollutants, particularly plastics. Research is conducted through targeted observational and experimental fieldwork, sustained observations (including ships, ocean observatories and autonomous vehicles), model development and analysis, and state of the art technology. We are looking to appoint scientists who already are, or have clear potential to become, principal investigators. You will be a developing science leader and will contribute to a number of existing projects, as well as develop your own areas of research.
These are exciting opportunities to help shape and deliver the scientific vision of NOC. Whilst these are fixed term appointments, there may be potential to convert to a permanent status subject to operational requirements. Closing dates are all 31 May 2019.
