Senior Research Associate in experimental atmospheric chemistry and sea-ice biogeochemistry
Applications are invited for a Senior Research Associate to undertake experimental studies of chemical, physical and biological processes related to sea-ice and the overlying atmosphere and underlying water using the highly instrumented Roland von Glasow Air-Sea-Ice-Chamber.
The studies will be undertaken in the context of the Eurochamp-2020 project and the UK/German EISPAC collaboration (Effects of ice stressors and pollutants on the Arctic marine cryosphere) collaboration. The Eurochamp-2020 experiments aim to provide the necessary boundary conditions and chamber characterization for the simulation of physical and biogeochemical sea-ice processes in models, with the purpose of upscaling these processes to regional and global forecasting systems. The aim of EISPAC is to assess the importance of ice-associated pollutants and nutrients on ice habitat functioning.
The work will focus on a range of aspects including
There is scope to adapt or enhance the project in a direction of the SRA's interest.
The SRA will document the work in scientific reports, develop standard operation procedures, write scientific publications for international, peer-reviewed journals and present the work at national and international conferences, and to stakeholders and policymakers.
This part time (0.8 FTE) post is available on 1 October 2018 for a fixed term of 26 months but must end no later than 30 November 2020.
