Full-time Lecturer in Marine Science, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
DEADLINE: Thursday, 30 May 2019
The University of East Anglia invites applications for a Lectureship in Marine Science based in the School of Environmental Sciences. Candidates will have developed strong expertise in an area of marine science research and will be excited by the opportunity to develop their research interests in the rich interdisciplinary environment the School offers. This joint post is part of a strategic alliance between the University of East Anglia and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas; https://www.cefas.co.uk/), the primary research agency responsible for advising government on marine environmental and fisheries management. The post has three key functions: developing research, teaching in the area of marine and/or coastal ecosystem services and enhancing the UEA-Cefas link through an active participation in the Collaborative Centre for Sustainable Use of the Seas (CCSUS; https://www.uea.ac.uk/ccsus/home). The successful candidate will be based at UEA in Norwich, but is expected to spend part of their time at the Cefas offices in Lowestoft in order to foster and maintain strong research links. SalaryThe salary for the ful time Lecturer in Marine Ecosystems position will be £42,036 to £48,677 per annum on Academic Grade 8 on the single salary spine (ATR).
The post is available on a full time basis from 1 September 2019. Closing date: 30 May 2019.
Four full-time, 3-year Principal Investigator positions, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, UK
DEADLINE: Friday, 31 May 2019
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.

2-year, full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate in Iron Biogeochemistry, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK
DEADLINE: Thursday, 13 June 2019
We have an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Professor Tagliabue's research group at the University of Liverpool. This post is linked to the "Bermuda Atlantic Iron Time-series" (BAIT) project, which is a new joint NSF-NERC funded project that links world leading laboratories in the UK and USA. BAIT will bring together observations and modelling to better understand the processes regulating the ocean iron cycle in the upper ocean over the seasonal cycle, using the Bermuda Atlantic Time Series as a natural laboratory. You should have a PhD in ocean biogeochemistry or a related discipline and will be based in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Liverpool; the post is available immediately for 24 months, with a salary in the range £34,188 - £39,610 per annum.
5-year, full-time Executive Secretary, North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), Sydney, BC, Canada
DEADLINE: Saturday, 15 June 2019
Applications are invited for a five-year appointment to the position of Executive Secretary of the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), based in Sidney, British Columbia, Canada. PICES is an international scientific organization, established by an inter-governmental Convention in 1992 (http://www.pices.int/about/convention.aspx). The Executive Secretary is the Organization’s chief administrative officer and must be impartial in promoting and coordinating the interests of all Contracting Parties. The Executive Secretary is responsible for the management of the Organization’s office, staff, and budget, which is presently over CAD $2 million. The term of office is for five years, subject to demonstrated performance during the first two years of the term (probationary period). The term of office may be renewed at the discretion of Council. The current salary range is CAD $125,900 – $148,100 plus a lump sum annual performance award of up to 12% of base salary. Starting salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. The applicant should indicate in their letter a suitable starting date; however, the starting date can be no later than May 1, 2020. Applications and letters of reference must be in English and marked “Personal and Confidential”.
2-year, full-time, Postdoctoral Researcher, Ocean Biogeochemistry Modelling, University of Brest, Plouzané, France
DEADLINE: Monday, 17 June 2019
There is a vacancy at the University of Brest in Plouzané, France, for a postdoctoral researcher to work on a recently funded project entitled “BIIM” (Biogeochemical Impact of Iron released by Marine particles of sedimentary and hydrothermal origin). The project which aims to: 1) assess the processes leading to the net dissolution of abiotic particulate iron from sedimentary and hydrothermal origin, and 2) evaluate its impact on marine biogeochemistry. In particular, the postdoctoral researcher will be in charge of setting up the numerical simulation of this newly considered iron compartment. The end goal of this work is to produce an assessment of the global biogeochemical impact of iron particles on the dissolved iron distribution and variability that, in turn, will impact global biological production patterns. He/She is expected to publish the results in high-impact journals and participate to international conferences. Previous experience with biogeochemical modelling (Unix/Linux environment, Fortran) and knowledge in trace metal biogeochemical cycles are required. Excellent oral and written English and ability to work within a multidisciplinary team are compulsory. This is a 24-months, full-time position.
