Post-Doctoral Reasearch Fellow in OxyNet:
A network to examine ocean deoxygenation trends and impacts
The University of British Columbia (UBC) invites applications for a full-time fixed term (3-yr) appointment as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at UBC in Vancouver, British Columbia. We seek an exceptional young scholar to play a leading role in an international and inter-disciplinary network of researchers, examining ocean deoxygenation trends and impacts with a strong focus on the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The position will involve strong collaboration with researchers at Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the University of Victoria, the University of Washington, McGill University and Dalhousie University, as well as with other international partners in the US, Japan and Chile. The preferred starting date for this position is April, 2018.
We seek a highly motivated candidate with a deep interest in ocean biogeochemical cycles, advanced training in numerical methods and data analysis, and strong leadership and inter-personal skills. Candidates must be comfortable spanning distinct research disciplines, methodological approaches and data-types in a thoughtful and innovative manner. The research fellow will compile existing observations of oxygen and related variables, incorporating data from long-term time series observations with state of the art real-time ocean observing systems in the Pacific Ocean, Canadian Arctic, Gulf of St. Lawrence and Scotian Shelf. She or he will explore advanced statistical techniques to analyze spatial and temporal trends over multiple scales, and will interface with numerical modellers and economists seeking to understand the mechanistic drivers of deoxygenation trends and their economic impacts on wild fisheries and aquaculture. The fellow will engage directly with various industry partners to facilitate the development of targeted data access and visualization tools.
The candidate must have a Ph.D. in oceanography or a closely related discipline of science by the start date. The University of British Columbia is committed to providing an environment which protects and promotes the human rights and affirms the dignity of all persons, including those of diverse backgrounds and needs, and which provides equitable access to employment opportunities. For questions about the position or to apply, please email Philippe Tortell (ptortell at eoas.ubc.ca<mailto:ptortell at eoas.ubc.ca>) or Debby Ianson (ianson at uvic.ca<mailto:ianson at uvic.ca>). 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 of applications will begin immediately.
