- Lund University is seeking a PhD student and a Post Doc to explore the changes in environmental and oceanic DSi concentrations through geologic time. The person will utilize stable silica isotope measurements to investigate biosilicification in fossil material from deep time together with supporting geochemical and geological proxies. The positions are based at Lund University and are part of a larger interdisciplinary research project in collaboration with Jarone Pinhassi’s research group at the Centre for Ecology and Evolution in Microbial model Systems (EEMiS) at Linnaeus University. The PhD position is for a 4-years and comes with full Swedish social security benefits. The Post Doctoral position is for at least 2 years with full Swedish social security benefits. Closing date: 15 January 2019

- MSc and PhD Positions in Marine Biogeochemistry, Oceanography and Climate at Dalhousie University. The Departments of Earth Sciences and Oceanography at Dalhousie University seek candidates for multiple, fully funded MSc and PhD projects on long-term climate impacts to the marine environment and fisheries ecology of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Potential projects range from late Holocene paleoceanographic reconstructions of temperature, nutrient cycling and fish abundance; analysis of historical marine climate variability; and predictive climate-biogeochemical-ecosystem modeling.These positions leverage significant investments in ocean science at Dalhousie through the recently established Ocean Frontier Institute. Students will have access to state-of-the-art analytical laboratories and high-performance computing, opportunities to participate in research cruises to the Northwest Atlantic, and exposure to internationally recognized expertise in marine science. Projects will have a significant outreach, education and advocacy component through interaction with government and NGO end-users. Prospective candidates should have completed an undergraduate degree (for MSc candidates) or masters degree or equivalent (for PhD candidates) with a minimum “A minus” average (GPA of 3.7 on a 4.3 scale). To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and academic transcripts to any of the following prospective supervisors:
Dr. Markus Kienast; Paleoceanography; email@example.com
Dr. Owen Sherwood; Isotope Biogeochemistry; firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Eric Oliver; Physical Oceanography; email@example.com
Dr. Katja Fennel; Modeling; firstname.lastname@example.org
