2nd notice: Researcher position in hydrochemistry at Uppsala University, Sweden


The Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University, Sweden, is seeking to hire a

researcher in biogeochemistry, aqueous geochemistry or a related discipline, for a

time-limited appointment from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.


The project "Identifying Sources of Mercury in Arctic Rivers" investigates the potential

sources of mercury (Hg) transported to the Beaufort Sea by the Mackenzie River in

Canada. Methods include isotopic characterization of Hg and carbon (C) in river water

as well as hydrological modelling. The project is a collaboration between Uppsala

University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Stockholm University and

Trent University (Canada).


The researcher will analyse hydrogeochemical data from the Mackenzie River basin.

The main objective is to identify and quantify possible terrestrial sources of Hg transported

in rivers across the basin (e.g.,: soils, permafrost, snowmelt). The information will be used to

model C and Hg transfer to the Beaufort Sea and its marine food web at present and in

response to future changes in climate and hydrology. The project seeks to anticipate how

the effects of such changes might impact the recovery of Arctic marine ecosystems from

decreasing global Hg emissions from anthropogenic sources.


PhD degree in biogeochemistry, aqueous geochemistry, hydrology, or a related discipline.

Knowledge of Hg and/or C biogeochemistry, as well the capacity to evaluate isotopic data,

are highly desirable. Fluency in English, both spoken and written, is necessary. The successful

candidate should be able to work independently, and to contribute for a development of

the project. Experience with Geographic Information Systems and/or hydrological modelling,

althought not essential, is desirable.


Salary: Individually negotiated salary.


Please submit your application by 15 April 2019
