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.
