Vacancy: Postdoctoral Scholar in Experimental Chemical Thermodynamics of
Seawater, at Scripps Institution of Oceanography - University of California
The Marine Physical Laboratory at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at
the University of California, San Diego is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar in
the Ocean CO2 Measurement Laboratory led by Professor Andrew Dickson.
The postdoctoral scholar will participate in laboratory measurements
involved in better defining marine 'pH', and in quantifying chemical
speciation in seawater media, including measurement of thermodynamic
properties of aqueous solutions using both established reference methods
(Harned Cells), and new approaches (using a differential scanning
calorimeter). The majority of the postdoctoral scholar's effort will focus
on making thermodynamic measurements in salt solutions that are needed to
provide well-constrained parameters for a chemical speciation model for
natural waters based upon the "Pitzer" equations. The overall aim of this
project and its co-funded element in the U.K. (PI Simon Clegg,
s.clegg at uea.ac.uk <mailto:s.clegg at uea.ac.uk> ) is to create a step change in
the capability of scientists to measure, interpret, and predict chemical
speciation and pH in natural waters of varying composition. The activities
of the project as a whole are closely related to those of SCOR Working Group
145 "Modelling Chemical Speciation in Seawater to Meet 21st Century Needs"
(www.marchemspec.org <http://www.marchemspec.org> ).
The position will soon be posted on the UCSD jobs website (jobs.ucsd.edu).
In the meantime, please contact Andrew Dickson (adickson at ucsd.edu
<mailto:adickson at ucsd.edu> ) for more information.
