Postdoctoral Investigator (m/f/d) in the area of Marine Biogeochemistry Reference code: 50004836_2 - 2019/KO 14 Commencement date: preferred starting date on December 1, 2019 The Institute of Coastal Research investigates the physical and biogeochemical dynamics of the coastal ocean and the impact of anthropogenic influences on the natural state. One scientific focus of the Institute of Coastal Research is the investigation of biogeochemical cycles in the coastal ocean. The Institute uses and develops the coastal observing system COSYNA, one of the densest in-situ measurement systems in the world. It is an integral part of the Global Coast Project that aims to study coastal carbon cycle dynamics by investigating exemplary regions and expanding this knowledge to coastal regions across the globe. This research is conducted using direct observations, proxies and numerical models to constrain carbon budget terms and their variability. We invite applications for a three-year postdoctoral investigator position (m/f/d) in the research group Integrated Coastal Observing Systems at the Institute of Coastal Research with preferred starting date on December 1, 2019. Your tasks Your profile Desirable qualifications: We offer The promotion of equal rights is a matter of course for us. Severely disabled persons and those equaling severely disabled persons who are equally suitable for the position will be considered preferentially within the framework of legal requirements. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), in Geesthacht, near Hamburg, and in Teltow, near Berlin, conducts materials and coastal research. For further information please refer to: www.hzg.de HZG is one of the 19 national institutions of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres e.V. (HGF). Around 950 employees carry out basic research and development work in close cooperation with national and international research institutions, research-oriented clinics and economic and public institutions. At the Institute of Coastal Research about 150 scientists research processes on the coast and interactions between the land, the sea and humans. The objective of the three sub-institutes "Biogeochemistry in Coastal Seas", "Operational Systems" and "System Analysis and Modelling" is to create the scientific basis for sustainable development and future-oriented management of the coasts. Geesthacht is located 35 km southeast of Hamburg in Northern Germany. Its location combines proximity to Germany’s second largest city and its cultural offerings with easy access to numerous outdoor activities in a beautiful setting. We are a family-friendly employer and operate our own kindergarten on campus. For inquiries, please contact For further questions please contact Dr. Holger Brix (Holger.Brix@hzg.de). Interested? We are looking forward to receiving your comprehensive application documents including your CV, description of your scientific and work expertise, list of publications if existing, and copies of credentials (B.Sc., M.Sc., Ph.D.) including grades.
