Postdoc Position in Modelling Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement Strategies and Ocean Resilience Patterns from Biodiversity Data

Syddansk Universitet (SDU)

A postdoc position, initially for two years, with start from 1 May 2021 or as soon as possible after that, is offered at the Department of Biology, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark. Application deadline: 15 March 2021.

The position will be associated with Carolin Löscher’s Villum Young Investigator Group ‘Marine Geoengineering- A tool to mitigate Climate Change?’ and complemented with funding from the DESIRE project (Developing Sustainable Solutions from Biological Resilience) funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark. Aim of the postdoc project is to develop a model based on metagenomic and other biodiversity-related and biogeochemical datasets to establish the relationship between ocean alkalinity and diversity patterns, and to explore where protective strategies, especially ocean alkalinity enhancement, make sense to apply.

The postdoc can further be part of a newly funded project exploring the interdependence between climate change and wars within the Danish Institute of Advanced Study (DIAS), a centre of excellence at SDU. Here we aim to expand our understanding of the impacts of climate change on life in general to humans and the postdoc will therefore have the opportunity to contribute to a concept for climate-war interactions.

The project will include collaborations with the Data Science Group at SDU, with DIAS and the Center for War Studies.

We are looking for a highly motivated, dedicated and ambitious candidate with:

• A PhD in biogeochemical modelling, machine learning in climate science or similar
• Interest in combining biodiversity studies and climate science, and geopolitics
• Project management and project development skills
• Interest to travel and participate in field experiments nationally and internationally
• Strong communication and collaborative skills and an interest in working in an interdisciplinary environment
• Proficiency in spoken and written English.

We offer:
• A two-year postdoc position in a stimulating and supportive, international young research team
• Access to state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure
• Opportunity to interact with an extensive network of national and international collaborators
• A competitive salary and social benefits (e.g. health coverage, parental leave, social security etc.)
• Dedicated assistance and support with various practical, social, and legal aspects (housing, visa, administration, tax etc.), especially for international candidates through our international staff office (ISO) and department.

For further information please contact Carolin Löscher (cloescher@biology.sdu.dk).

Application, salary etc.
