The Arctic is arguably the most rapidly changing environment on the planet and changes in sea ice are modifying critical biological and biogeochemical processes. These challenges are being
addressed through the NERC Research Program “The Changing Arctic Ocean”. SAMS is leading the Arctic PRIZE project (Arctic Productivity in the Seasonal
Ice Zone) http://www.sams.ac.uk/arctic-prize/ in collaboration with 5 other UK institutes and numerous world-leading international partners. We are seeking a highly-motivated and dynamic postdoctoral researcher
to support the delivery of the physical oceanographic component of Arctic PRIZE.
The successful applicant will hold a PhD and have a background in physical oceanography with an interest in how physical processes impact on biological and biogeochemical systems. They
will ideally have experience of using autonomous vehicles (gliders and/or AUVs) to make sustained measurements in shelf seas and an understanding of arctic oceanography. Ideally they will have a track record of working within a multi-disciplinary project environment.
The main duties are 1) Contribute to the preparation, planning and execution of Arctic PRIZE research cruises 2) Contribute to the delivery of the robotics
program in Arctic PRIZE 3) Lead and publish high quality peer-reviewed research to meet SAMS research objectives. 4) Form and maintain national and international relationships and collaborations for arctic research 5) Travel to national and international meetings
