Postdoctoral Fellow for the MOSAiC Expedition.

The URI Graduate School of Oceanography is seeking a motivated, and intellectually curious individual for a two year postdoctoral fellowship to study the microbially-mediated biogeochemistry of C1 compounds in the Central Arctic during the [MOSAiC Expedition].

The successful candidate will participate in a portion of the year-long MOSAiC drift aboard the RV Polarstern, beginning late 2019, as well as pre and post-expedition activities. The position is based at URI/GSO with time spent at Scripps Inst. of Oceanography in San Diego, and at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven to train and interact with our collaborators.

PhD Position in ocean instrumentation and polar biogeochemistry

The URI Graduate School of Oceanography is seeking applicants for a funded PhD position in ocean instrumentation and polar biogeochemistry. The research will focus on instrument and method development of underwater mass spectrometry (UMS). UMS observations can be used to estimate ocean ecosystem metabolism, to trace glacial melt around marine-terminating glaciers, and to map benthic methane and nitrous oxide fluxes. The first phase of the PhD will utilize UMS data collected in the Terra Nova Bay polynya, Antarctica.

This project includes opportunities to expand the existing capacities of the UMS, and for data processing by machine learning, depending on the interests of the successful applicant.
