Deadline: August 25, 2021

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is seeking candidates for a postdoc in assessment of trace metal behaviour in hydrothermal plume using thorium and helium isotopes.

The candidate will be part of an international GEOTRACES team that investigates trace metal biogeochemistry in the world’s ocean. The candidate will be working closely with chemical and physical oceanographers in the project, and collaborators at Kiel and Jacobs Universities, Alfred Wegener Institute (Germany), University of Minnesota and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (US). The candidate will undertake analysis of thorium isotopes (helium isotope analysis to be conducted in external lab), and conduct data interpretation of thorium and helium isotopes to establish the distribution/behavior of trace elements in the plume at Rainbow in relation to sources and removal processes. The candidate is expected to publish the findings in international journals.
