Variability and importance of natural non marine Particles for the vertical carbon flux in the Northeast Atlantic
At the Leibniz-Institute for Baltic Sea Research (IOW) within the department of Marine Chemistry is an open 3 years part-time position (PhD) starting on 01.04.2013 subject to the availability of funding.
We are seeking a candidate with a degree in geosciences (Master/Diploma) preferably in physical oceanography, mineralogy/geology, physics, marine chemistry or marine biology
with strong interest in interdisciplinary work. The aim of the PhD is to evaluate the importance and abundance of selected natural particles of non marine origin (e.g. volcanic ash, spores, pollen, fungi or iberulites) in the water column of the Northeast Atlantic focused on the Madeira Basin. Data and samples necessary for the study will be collected during expeditions at sea as part of the project activities.
Application deadline is the 15th of March 2013.
