The Department of Ocean System Sciences (OCS, department chair: prof. dr. Gert-Jan Reichart) is looking for a highly motivated Junior Scientist (tenure track) or Senior Scientist in Deep Sea Benthic Biogeochemistry with an earth science or environmental background with a focus on the deep-sea benthic environment.
LOCATION: ROYAL NIOZ TEXEL (‘T HORNTJE, THE NETHERLANDS)
VACANCY ID: 2016 – 080
CLOSING DATE: NOVEMBER 1ST, 2016
The department of Ocean System Sciences (OCS) aims to investigate open-ocean processes ranging from physical oceanography at multiple scales to chemical oceanography, and deep-sea ecology to paleoceanography and paleoclimatology.
We cover a wide range of scientific disciplines through experiments and data collection during sea-going oceanographic research as well as through home-based laboratory experiments and analyses.
All involved scientists rely on modern observational techniques including moorings, landers, thermistor strings, trace-metal clean samplers, and novel underwater autonomous observations.
For this research we actively collaborate with peers in (inter)national partner institutes including the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht (IMAU) and the Faculty of Earth Sciences of Utrecht University, as well as e.g., MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences in Bremen and the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) in Bremerhaven, Germany.
