Phd in Marine Biogeochemical Modelling
#oceans #modelling #biogeochemistry
The Marine Chemistry and Biogeochemistry Group of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has an opening for a PhD student in marine biogeochemical modelling, for the research project “Transformation and transport of bio-essential and toxic elements in the Arctic under the pressure of thawing permafrost of the Siberian continental shelf”.
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) aims to create knowledge for a better world and discover solutions that can change everyday life.
The Department of Chemistry at NTNU trains graduates for careers in the environmental sciences, industry, the school system, research and public administration. Chemistry is also a basic discipline for medicine, biology and technology, and an important key to issues related to energy, climate, environment, food, water and health.
The research activities of the department range from environmental chemistry to applied theoretical chemistry. The Department of Chemistry is one of the eight departments of the Faculty of Natural Sciences.
The candidate will be responsible of:
- improving the understanding of the socio-ecological environmental response of the Arctic Ocean under the impact of permafrost thaw in a changing climate;
- characterising the biogeochemistry of carbon and its interaction with iron, mercury and other trace elements.
Profile and skills
- Master’s degree in oceanography, marine chemistry, geochemistry or equivalent fields;
- Proven experience in marine biogeochemical and hydrodynamic modelling, oceanography, marine chemistry or biogeochemistry;
- Mastery of biochemical models (BROM, ERSEM, OxyDep);
- Mastery of hydrodynamic/ transport models (2DBP, ROMS, FVCOM);
- Be a team player, well organised, ambitious;
- Excellent written and oral communication skills.
NTNU, Trondheim, Norway
