The University of Delaware (UD) School of Marine Science and Policy invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar position in ocean carbon cycle research. The position is available immediately. The successful candidate will work on ocean carbon cycle research and analytical methods. Specifically, the postdoc will work on improving a novel analytical method that simultaneously measures the concentration and stable isotope of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) with high precision and accuracy at sea and apply the method to fieldwork for ocean carbon cycle research including estimation of anthropogenic CO2 uptake in the Atlantic Ocean and/or estimation of terrestrial and ocean margin carbon export fluxes to the open ocean. The postdoctoral scholar will make use of state-of-the-art analytical and experimental facilities in Dr. Wei-Jun Cai’s Ocean Carbon Research Laboratory.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in either chemical oceanography, analytical chemistry, or a closely related field. The position will be located in the main campus of the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. The postdoc will attend field cruises in the South Atlantic Ocean and/or North American ocean margins and is also expected to lead first-authored publications. The appointment will be for one year, with continuation pending performance and funding for up to a total of three years.
