======== POSTDOC MODELLING ANCIENT OCEAN CHEMISTRY
We have two years of funding to support a postdoctoral fellow to model the
chemical evolution of marine chemistry through geologic time. The successful
candidate will both use and further develop existing 3-D ocean models such
the ROMS (Regional Ocean Modelling System) or MITgcm, with the inclusion of
the relevant microbial cycles as revealed from the geologic record.
We anticipate the further development of this platform into an interactive
model coupling the evolution of ocean chemistry with the evolution of
atmosphere composition. This position is placed at the Nordic Center for
Earth Evolution (NordCEE)  and is in association with the Danish
Institute for Advanced Study (DIAS)  under the project From the beginning
of time to life supported by the VKR Foundation.
The selected candidate will have demonstrated exceptional scientific
qualities, including proficiency in modelling, and as part of DIAS, the
candidate should be willing to communicate their research at public lectures
and to take active part in DIAS’s highly interdisciplinary outreach events.
