- Postdoctoral position in ocean metals ecology in The John Lab at the University of Southern California. The applicant will develop large-volume trace-metal clean mesocosms. This experimental setup will allow us to explore the role of trace-metals on ocean ecology, moving beyond the ‘instantaneous’ effects measured in typical bottle incubations towards longer-term ecosystem-scale experimentation. Initial experiments will focus on the role of iron from dust in supporting nitrogen fixation in the oceans, with further experiments based on the specific skills and interests of the postdoc, and on opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. Possible areas of further research include the biological cycling of trace-metal isotopes, the role of trace-metals in viral ecology, or the use of mesocosms to constrain global numerical models of metal cycling. The postdoc will have frequent opportunities for collaboration and travel through the Simons Collaboration on Ocean Processes and Ecology (SCOPE) project. Applicants should send a CV and a cover letter describing areas of research interest to Professor Seth John (email@example.com).
- Post-doc fellowship in biological fractionation of non-traditional isotopes at Lab of Oceanography of Villefranche-sur-Mer, France, expected date of employment 1 October 2019. The relationships between the concentrations of trace metals and marine biomass and biodiversity remain uncertain. The ISO2MET ANR project targets to apply stable isotope fractionations of trace metals in marine ecotoxicology, and to determine the relationship. The post-doc will focus his/her activity on characterizing and quantifying biological fractionation of lithium, copper and zinc isotopes in the marine environment. The post-doc will also participate to the experimental work initiated at the cellular level, in collaboration with a laboratory located at the Faculty of Medicine in Nice. At the organism level, the candidate will perform high sensitivity isotopic measurements on plankton, plankton-feeders, fishes, bivalves and corals, collected in contrasted environments, or cultured under controlled conditions. The objective is to establish the control laws of biological isotope fractionations in the ocean and to provide new approaches in ecotoxicology, paleoenvironment and medical fields. Candidates should hold a PhD in non-traditional isotopes in the environment and have significant skills in biology and/or paleo-environments. Experience in modeling isotopic and geochemical data would be an asset. The capacity to work in a multidisciplinary team, and the ability to communicate and write easily in English is essential. Additional expertise will be appreciated in ecotoxicology and environmental science. LOV is a joint research unit of both the CNRS and Sorbonne University, and is a French marine station specialized in plankton ecology, ocean acidification and marine biogeochemical cycles. At LOV, the post-doc will participate to the newly formed Chemistry-Ocean-Climate (CHOC) team dynamics, that involve 8 researchers, technical staffs and several PhD students. In the context of the project, the post-doc will be part of the ANR ISO2MET team and will benefit from the interdisciplinary and numerous interactions of its members from LOV, LP2M (Nice), IAEA-Monaco, LIENSs (LaRochelle) and ENS-Lyon. Equipped clean laboratories, ICP-OES, ICP-MS, GC and EA-IRMS are part of the CHOC and the LIENSs platforms. MC-ICP-MS are available in ENS-Lyon. Modeling is performed in collaboration with Nice University biophysicists. Send CV, name of two references, motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and to email@example.com, before 30 June 2019.
- Two postdocs in Plouzané, France on the Biogeochemical Impact of Iron released by Marine particles of sedimentary and hydrothermal origin (BIIM) Project which aims to 1) assess the processes leading to the net dissolution of abiotic particulate iron from sedimentary and hydrothermal origin, and 2) evaluate its impact on marine biogeochemistry.
- Postdoc 1: trace metal ocean biogeochemistry-12 months, renewable 12 months: in charge of undertaking careful dissolution experiments of sedimentary and hydrothermal particles. Analyses will include SF-ICP-MS (Element XR/SeaFAST), iron organic speciation by competitive ligand exchange adsorptive cathodic stripping voltammetry (CLE-ACSV) and SEM/XDS imaging. He/She will interpret the results regarding the parameters affecting the dissolution of iron from suspended sedimentary particles. He/she will be interacting with the modellers so that outputs of these experiments can be embedded in biogeochemical models. The end goal of this work is to produce an assessment of the global biogeochemical impact of iron particles on the dissolved iron distribution and variability that, in turn, will impact global biological production patterns.Previous experience with trace metal clean analytical techniques is required. Excellent oral and written English and ability to work within a multidisciplinary team are compulsory. He/She is expected to publish the results in high-impact journals and participate to international conferences. Strong knowledge in trace metal biogeochemical cycles are required. To apply, a CV, a letter of application (2 pages max) and the names of three referees should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. All applications for this post should be received in advance of on Tuesday 25th June 2019. Please note that late applications will not be accepted. Please note that late applications will not be accepted. Starting date would ideally be September 2019.
- Postdoc 2 – Ocean Biogeochemistry Modelling, 24 months: in charge of setting up the numerical simulation of this newly considered iron compartment. The modelisation will have more specifically to take into account the impact of external parameters (e.g. T°, light, bacteria abundance) on the dissolution of these iron particles. The selected candidate will have to write the equations describing the time evolution of the dissolved iron originating from the iron particles. A 0D model derived from these equations will then have to be coded in Fortran (in order to be easily incorporated in the full 3D biogeochemical model, later in the project) and used to numerically simulate the role of the various in-situ environmental parameters (e.g. T°, light, sediment types) on the dissolved iron concentration. Results of the 0D simulations will be confronted to the comparable experimental data to refine the parameterization. In some cases, this confrontation between the 0D simulations and the experimental data may lead us to modify the experimental design, which has been thought to be flexible. Then, the processes modelled in 0D will be embedded in a 3D ocean biogeochemical model (PISCES) by adding the code corresponding to the influence of the iron particles on the dissolved iron to the PISCES iron module. The end goal of this work is to produce an assessment of the global biogeochemical impact of iron particles on the dissolved iron distribution and variability that, in turn, will impact global biological production patterns. He/She is expected to publish the results in high-impact journals and participate to international conferences. Previous experience with biogeochemical modelling (Unix/Linux environment, Fortran) and knowledge in trace metal biogeochemical cycles are required. Excellent oral and written English and ability to work within a multidisciplinary team are compulsory. To apply, a CV, a letter of application (2 pages max) and the names of three referees should be emailed to email@example.com. All applications for this post should be received in advance of on Monday 17th June 2019. Please note that late applications will not be accepted. Starting date would ideally be in September 2019. For further information, contact Dr Thomas Gorgues: firstname.lastname@example.org
