The University of Bremen, Germany, is offering – conditional to the release of budgetary funds – the following position for a Junior Research Group Leader “Coastal Development and Sea Level Change in Tropical Areas” for three years with the option of an extension.
Tropical coastlines and their ecosystems are highly vulnerable to sea level change. The overarching goal of the junior research group will be to evaluate modern and projected regional sea-level changes along tropical coasts within the framework of past natural variations. The focus should be on sea-level changes on timescales of societal relevance. Potential geoscientific methods to assess past sea-level variations include sedimentology, (pal)ecology, palynology, geochemistry, as well as numerical modelling and GIS. The group is expected to interact with working groups at MARUM and the Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Ecology to act as a bridge between the institutions.
