This PDF will extend the modified Harvardton-Bear model (Boudreau et al., 2010, GBC, 24, GB4010, doi:10.1029/2009GB003654) to the changes in carbonate chemistry and compensation during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM).
The work includes modeling of PETM acidification, circulation, geography, bathymetry, Ca and Mg ratio, and alkalinity input. This PDF carries a stipend of $45K/a and funding is available for up to 3 years, subject to satisfactory performance. The position is open until filled. A PhD in Oceanography, or relevant Geoscience, with appropriate modeling experience, is required. A willingness to travel is expected. E-‐mail a letter of application, with a CV and contact information for 3 references, to Prof. Bernard P. Boudreau, Dept. Oceanography, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada at bernie.boudreau(at)dal.ca .
