The Department of Ocean System Research (OCS) at Royal NIOZ Texel is looking for a highly motivated post doc with a background in marine trace metal biogeochemistry and with an interest in the cycling of iron and iron isotopes as well as other bio-active metals.
Researchers within OCS focus on the biogeochemical cycles of trace elements and their isotopes (TEI’s) in the global ocean and are active in the International GEOTRACES programme. This project is part of the recently awarded NWO Vidi grant “Trace metals and the Arctic-Atlantic gateway in a changing world, local processes and global connections (MetalGate)”. Researchers in the project will investigate the cycling of iron and its isotopes as well as other bio-active metals in the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian-Sea region, the main gateway between the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean. The project will be focused around an expedition aboard the research vessel ‘Pelagia’ to the high latitude North Atlantic and the seas surrounding Iceland where researchers will use the NIOZ Titan sampling and CTD system for trace metals as well as state-of-the- art temperature controlled deck incubators.
