Postdoctoral Researcher – Carbon Cycling in a Mangrove Estuary
The Department of Oceanography at the University of Hawaii invites
applications for a full-time Postdoctoral Researcher to examine aquatic
carbon cycling in the coastal Florida Everglades, situated in the largest
contiguous mangrove forest in North America.
As part of a multi-disciplinary project with investigators from University
of Hawaii, Florida International University, NASA, NOAA and the National
Park Service, the Postdoctoral Researcher will use autonomous instruments
to make time series measurements of organic and inorganic carbon
parameters, along with ancillary measurements, in a mangrove estuary.
The appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based on
performance. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. and a strong
background in Biogeochemistry. The candidate will be based in South
Florida at Florida International University and will participate in
regular fieldwork in the Everglades.
The successful applicant will join a research group focused on studying
transport and mixing in natural waters, and carbon cycling in coastal
environments. In addition to a background in Biogeochemistry, experience
with autonomous instruments (in particular pH, pCO2, and O2 and CDOM) as
well as measurements of carbon parameters is preferred (in particular,
pCO2, pH, alkalinity, DIC, DOC, and δ13C). It is expected that the
candidate will actively participate in the publication of results from
experiments in the Everglades.
For questions about the position, or to apply for the position, please
email Prof. David Ho at david.ho at hawaii.edu. Applicants should submit a
personal statement describing research experience and interests, a
curriculum vitae, relevant peer-reviewed publications, and names and
contact information of three referees. Evaluation will begin immediately
and position will start July 1, 2015.
