The research group for Marine Isotope Geochemistry at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) of the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, is seeking to fill a

PhD position (m/w/d) (salary according to E13 TV-L, 50%)

The position is limited to 3 years. Start: 1st January 2020

The working group Marine Isotope Geochemistry uses stable and radiogenic isotope systems (Si, Fe, Nd, Sr, Pb) to investigate biogeochemical processes, element cycles and inputs to the ocean, and to reconstruct changes in the marine environment during past intervals of climate change. The infrastructure of the group includes a state-of-the-art clean lab and a multicollector ICP-MS. Additional analytic instruments are available at the institute.

The PhD student will work on a project in the South Pacific to reconstruct the deep circulation over past climatic cycles using radiogenic isotopes. Candidates must have a university degree (M.Sc. or equivalent) in geosciences or chemistry. Explicitly desirable is experience in inorganic-geochemical sample processing and analysis and a background in paleoceanography.

The Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of women in science. Therefore, female candidates are especially encouraged to apply. According to § 21 Abs. 3 NHG, equally qualified female candidates will be given preference. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.

Please send your application (including cover letter, CV, copies of certificates) and at least one reference letter to mig-stellen@uol.de. Please contact Prof. Dr. Katharina Pahnke for any queries (k.pahnke@icbm.de). Application deadline is 10th December 2019.

The research group for Marine Isotope Geochemistry / Central Marine-Chemical Analytics facility at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) of the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, is seeking to fill the position of a

Research Scientist (Postdoc) (m/w/d) (salary according to E13 TV-L, 100%, not suitable for part-time work) - limited to 5 years -

The Central Marine-Chemical Analytics facility and the working group for Marine Isotope Geochemistry are seeking a highly motivated scientist to strengthen the research of the institute in the field of inorganic marine geochemistry using novel techniques and research approaches. The position is based at the Central Marine-Chemical Analytics facility of the ICBM. The Central Marine-Chemical Analytics facility will on the one hand provide the expertise and infrastructure for basic marine-chemical analyses that are key to the main research themes and large interdisciplinary projects at the ICBM, and on the other hand will represent and actively advance the research in coastal and open ocean areas at the institute.

Candidates must have a university degree and a doctoral degree in marine geosciences or inorganic chemistry as well as scientific experience in marine research and the geochemistry of trace elements in the marine environment. Expertise in the mass-spectrometric analysis of trace elements in seawater and marine sediments is expected. Available analytical instruments at the institute include ICP-MS, ICP-OES, XRF and MC-ICP-MS. The candidate is expected to take up method development on the existing instruments and an ICP-QQQ expected to be acquired in the coming years. We are seeking a candidate with a strong record of peer-reviewed publications and successful acquisition of third-party funds. Experience and willingness to perform field work also under harsh conditions and on extensive sea-going field campaigns is required. We further expect the candidate to strengthen the research profile of in the Central Marine-Chemical Analytics facility of the ICBM through own research projects and proposals.

The Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of women in science. Therefore, female candidates are especially encouraged to apply. According to § 21 Abs. 3 NHG, equally qualified female candidates will be given preference.

Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.

Please send your application including cover letter, CV, publication list, copies of certificates and a short research statement (in one document in PDF format) and at least one reference letter to mig-stellen@uol.de. For questions please contact Prof. Dr. Katharina Pahnke (k.pahnke@icbm.de). Application deadline is 13th December 2019.

GEOTRACES (www.geotraces.org) is an international programme in marine geochemistry. Its mission is to identify and quantify processes that control the distribution of key trace elements and isotopes in the ocean, and their sensitivity to changing environmental conditions.

GEOTRACES is seeking to appoint a part-time Project Officer for the GEOTRACES International Project Office (IPO) hosted at the Laboratoire d'Études en Géophysique et Océanographie Spatiales (LEGOS, Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées) at University of Toulouse III – Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France. The IPO serves as a co-ordination centre for day-to-day operations and logistical matters of the GEOTRACES programme. It develops and maintains products to manage the programme; assists the SSC and its standing committees with all aspects of their work; facilitates communications among the various components of GEOTRACES (e.g., national committees, standing committees) and serves as the primary interface for communications with the broader oceanographic community and with the general public. 

Job description
