Job offer: Marine scientist (Natural Resource scientist 2)

Deadline: 24 April 2018

Duties:  Implements the component of the marine waters monitoring program that relates to ocean acidification. Performs natural resource science research to meet the specific objective of determining the current status of marine water quality in Puget Sound and the coastal estuaries, using conventional techniques and other tasks.

Required Qualifications: A Bachelor’s Degree with a major study in Marine Science, Oceanography, or other closely allied marine science field AND Three (3) years of professional research work experience in Marine Science or Oceanography, related to ocean acidification. A Master’s Degree will substitute for two (2) years of experience and a Ph.D. will substitute for all of the required experience, provided the field of major study was in the specific specialty.

PhD opportunity: Climatic refuges to investigate the resilience of corals to environmental change

Deadline: 22 April 2018

Description: The program “Make Our Planet Great Again” has selected the project ClimateRefuges to co-finance a PhD position. This call is for non-French nationals and candidates must not have resided in France after April 1, 2016. Students must possess a master’s degree or be enrolled in a master-level program with a defense before August 31, 2018. The doctoral contract must take effect no later than December 31, 2018
The research project 4Oceans recently funded by “Make Our Planet Great Again” program can contribute to co-finance a doctorate (PhD) position for 3 years. The research project 4Oceans seeks to investigate the physiological, ecological and adaptive responses of marine organisms to environmental change (i.e. ocean warming and ocean acidification) in the Mediterranean Sea. The 4Oceans project will merge disciplines and will involve i) ecological and physiological field surveys and experiments in marine volcanic CO2 vents, sites in the NW Mediterranean with highly variable seasonal temperatures and extreme heat waves; and sites at the edge of the current distribution of a coral species; ii) ecophysiological laboratory experiments; iii) functional, trait-based analysis and synthesis; and iv) ocean-based solution and restoration actions to minimize the impacts. Integration of physical-chemical and ecological studies will advance our understanding of species and ecosystem resilience under present conditions and future climate scenarios.

This position will be based at the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche (LOV), Villefranche-sur-mer, France. The LOV is a leading French oceanographic institution dedicated to marine science research. It is a joint research unit of the Sorbonne Université and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. It is internationally renowned in the fields of biogeochemistry, physical oceanography, marine optics, zoo- and phytoplankton ecology/physiology and microbial ecology.
