Junior Scientist (tenure track) or Senior Scientist in Physical Oceanography
The Department of Ocean Systems (OCS; headed by prof. dr. Gert-Jan Reichart) is looking for a highly motivated junior scientist (tenure track) or a senior scientist in observational Physical Oceanography with an extensive track record based on seagoing research and a focus on the deeper parts of the ocean.
LOCATION: ROYAL NIOZ TEXEL (‘T HORNTJE, THE NETHERLANDS)
VACANCY ID: 2018-095
CLOSING DATE: January 21 2019
Researchers working within OCS aim to understand the role of the oceans in regulating global biogeochemical cycles, primary productivity and climate. Within this framework, one of the key objectives within the department is to investigate the dark, deep sea. This part of the ocean remains largely unexplored and therefore yields surprises almost every time we visit it.
As our new junior – or senior scientist, you will help us investigating processes in physical oceanography across spatial scales, partly by actively participating in seagoing oceanographic research. During your research you will apply modern observational techniques, including moored instruments, landers, shipborne CTD and a free-falling microstructure profiler. These approaches will help you to understand the interactions between physical processes, the sea floor topography and impacts on ocean biology in the deep ocean. Read more ›
