Postdoctoral Researcher - Mangrove Biogeochemistry
The Department of Oceanography at the University of Hawaii invites applications for a full-time Postdoctoral Researcher to examine aquatic carbon cycling in the coastal Florida Everglades, situated in the largest contiguous mangrove forest in North America. This multi-disciplinary project, with investigators from University of Hawaii, NASA, NOAA and the National Park Service, aims to quantify the seasonal variability in sources and sinks of aquatic carbon in order to determine the fate of CO2 sequestered by mangroves of the coastal Florida Everglades.
The project will use a combination of 3He/SF6 tracer release experiments, underway and discrete measurements of carbon concentrations and isotopes during process studies in the Florida coastal Everglades.
The successful applicant will join a research group focused on studying transport and mixing in natural waters, and carbon cycling in coastal environments, and will be responsible for planning and leading field experiments, data reduction and analysis, as well as presentation at national/international meetings, and preparation of manuscript for publication. The appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based on performance. The position will be based in Honolulu, Hawaii, and will require travel to Florida for extended periods.
The appointee should possess the following qualifications, skills, abilities and experience:
For questions about the position, or to apply for the position, please email Prof. David Ho at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, a personal statement describing research experience and interests, addressing each of the selection criteria, relevant peer-reviewed publications, and names and contact information of three referees. Evaluation will begin immediately with an anticipated start date of November 1, 2016.
