Postdoctoral research position in air-sea interactions at University of Delaware: until filled

A postdoctoral researcher position is available at the School of Marine Science and Policy, University of Delaware. The postdoctoral researcher will undertake work on existing projects related to air-sea interactions and fluid dynamics with opportunities to develop projects in new directions. Applicants should have experience with laboratory methods and familiarity with flow-visualization techniques. Applicants must have a PhD in Physical Oceanography, Mechanical or Civil Engineering, or a closely related discipline, as well as strong quantitative and writing skills.

The position is available for a year, with renewal for one year contingent upon performance and funding. The School of Marine Science and Policy at UD hosts a lively community of ocean science researchers at both the Newark and Lewes campuses. The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to interact with scientists in both places.

The School of Marine Science and Policy values diversity in its faculty, staff, and students and strongly encourages applications from women and members of underrepresented minority groups.

Candidates should submit a cover letter, statement of research, CV, and graduate transcript (unofficial transcripts accepted) through the University of Delaware Jobs website (job ID# 105184). In addition, applicants must request that three confidential letters of recommendation be sent electronically to Dr. Fabrice Veron at fveron@udel.edu. If they have not yet graduated, applicants should indicate in their cover letter the date by which they anticipate having their doctoral degree conferred. Additional information is available by contacting Prof. Fabrice Veron. The position is available starting immediately and open until filled.

Postdoctoral research fellow position to study bioactive trace elements to understand seasonal cycling of trace metals in Southern African and Antarctic coastal oceans - Stellenbosch University, Western Cape, South Africa

The Trace Metal Experimental and Biogeochemistry Group (TracEx) within the Department of Earth Sciences, Stellenbosch University, Western Cape, South Africa, invites applications for a postdoctoral position. The broader research project examines the biogeochemical cycling of iron, copper and zinc and their link in controlling primary productivity. The postdoctoral fellow will apply geo-tracers to understand cycling and interaction of trace nutrient with phytoplankton to study Southern African and Antarctic coastal regions. Thus, preference will be given to applicants with expertise in clean room techniques and biogeochemistry of trace metals linked to physics of the ocean. Added experience in biogeochemical modelling, and knowledge of GIS and remote sensing will be advantageous.

The position will require fieldwork, participation in Southern Ocean cruises and travel, therefore physical fitness and ability to work long hours in harsh conditions is a pre-requisit. The applicant may assist with future proposal preparation and will have the opportunity to advise graduate students and, to some extent, if desired, support undergraduate teaching and outreach activities. Opportunities for interdisciplinary research exist through collaboration with the other groups in South Africa (e.g., oceanography, biotechnology) and internationally (e.g., GEOTRACES community).

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in a related discipline such as Oceanography, Earth Sciences, Biogeochemistry and a record of scientific research publications in scholarly journals relavent to this position.

The position is for 24 months, commencing from June of 2018 or earlier, subject to grant success. Renewal of the position for the second year is subject to performance and availability of funds. For further information about the project and to apply please contact Prof A Roychoudhury (roy@sun.ac.za). Application should include, as a single pdf document, a cover/motivation letter outlining experience and expertise relevant to the project, a comprehensive Résumé/CV and a short research statement. Please also provide the names and contact information of three professional referees.
