Postdoc position in Arctic River Biogeochemistry available at Northumbria University (UK)

Paul Mann
Dear all, 

Job offer: Research Fellow (post-doctoral level) in Arctic River Biogeochemistry at Northumbria University, UK.

Deadline: 4th November 2018

Background and tasks:

This position is part of the international research project “Changing Arctic Carbon cycle in the cOastal Ocean Near-shore (CACOON)”, which aims to quantify the effect of changing freshwater export and terrestrial permafrost thaw on the type and fate of river-borne organic matter delivered to arctic coastal waters. In CACOON, we focus on the Lena and Kolyma River deltas and their surrounding shelf areas in Siberia. 

You will focus on sampling the Kolyma River during spring and summer field work in the Siberian Arctic. Work will involve sample collection from small open boats during trips to the coastal Arctic Ocean, measurements and manipulative experiments in the lab and data processing from previous field campaigns. Further details about the programme can be found here:

You will have a PhD in a relevant discipline and experience of producing publications, delivering presentations, running lab experiments and be familiar with analytical instruments.  Russian language skills will be advantageous.  Candidates will be expected to disseminate research findings in peer-reviewed publications and international conferences. This opportunity is offered for a 2 year fixed term period and will be based at Northumbria University in Newcastle, UK  with frequent trips to Siberia, Germany and the USA.
