1-yr, full-time Engineer on Machine Learning for Ocean Data Quality Control, IFREMER, Brest, France
DEADLINE: Friday, 02 November 2018
The Laboratory for Ocean Physics and Satellite Remote Sensing (LOPS) at Ifremer, Brest, France, is offering a 1-year long limited term contract for a full time engineer to work on machine learning for ocean's data quality control. The recruited person will be in charge of developing a new procedure to quality control Argo data. This procedure will be based on machine learning methods and on the historical dataset of measurement quality flags, which provides the training dataset for supervised learning methods. The recruited person will ultimately transfer the procedure to the Coriolis data center, working in close collaboration with a "Big Data" engineer at Coriolis who will be in charge of setting-up a software environment for big data mining and machine learning. This position is part of the MOCCA project (Monitoring the Oceans and Climate Change with Argo), an European initiative carried by the European Research Infrastructure Consortium EURO-ARGO.
Five-years, full-time Postdoctoral Scientist in Ocean Biogeochemical Modeling, Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA, USA
DEADLINE: Sunday, 18 November 2018
A postdoctoral scientist position in Ocean Biogeochemical Modeling is available at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole, MA, USA. This position is part of a large Simons Foundation collaborative project on Computational Biogeochemical Modeling of Marine Ecosystems (CBIOMES) that involves multiple investigators and is directed by Mick Follows at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The MBL component of the project focuses on developing metabolic network representations of marine microbial food webs and their associated biogeochemistry. The goal of the MBL team is to leverage information gleaned from genome-scale models to improve understanding and modeling of marine ecosystems. Consequently, we are seeking applicants with expertise or familiarity in systems biology modeling combined with marine ecosystem modeling, or individuals with interest in exploring this new area of research. The successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively with members of the CBIOMES team.
Review of applications began 1 February 2018 but continues now until the position is filled. Funding support is available for up to five years, but performance will be reviewed on an annual basis.
Senior research scientist, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, East Boothbay, ME, USA
DEADLINE: Friday, 30 November 2018
Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences invites applications for a Senior Research Scientist (SRS) position to complement the mission of our non-profit research institution. The Laboratory was established in 1974 and is located on the coast of East Boothbay, Maine, USA, in a modern, LEED-certified research and education campus. Successful SRS candidates are expected to lead transformative, interdisciplinary research that aligns with, and expands, our research mission. Targeted research areas for this position are in any of the following research themes: (1) ocean microbiome, (2) ocean biogeochemistry, and (3) ocean health. Cross-cutting themes for these positions include human impacts, foundations of marine food webs and climate change.
