Job Opportunity: JIMAR PIFSC Oceanographic Assistant Researcher

Closing date: 16 July 2018

Duties: Conducts research in biogeochemistry and ecology of ocean acidification and ocean warming specifically in the Main Hawaiian Islands, with a specific focus on (1) meta-analysis of ocean acidification and warming impacts on all components of tropical coastal ecosystems, (2) development of sensitivity scalars for these components including uncertainties that will feed into a large ecosystem model, and (3) model spatial variation in exposure to ocean acidification and warming. Works collaboratively to ascertain analysis meets the ecosystem model needs, and co-authors synthetic documents, manuscripts and scientific presentations.

Location: Hawaii

PhD opportunity: The role of river flow is regulating ocean acidification in Belizean coastal waters

Deadline for applications: 1 June 2018!

Description

Ocean carbon chemistry can exert a potentially powerful control over coastal ecosystem processes, particularly in low latitude systems containing coral reefs. The carbon system in such regions is complex, with in situ processes, terrestrial runoff and increasing atmospheric concentrations, all of which vary in time and space, all playing important roles in regulating surface concentrations. This project will use a suite of autonomous systems, satellite remote sensing, in situ sampling and numerical modelling to investigate controls over the nearshore carbonate system around Belize. Belize is one of the most pristine countries in central America and is fringed by the second largest barrier reef in the world. A central aim is to disentangle the relative importance of land derived organic matter, biological processes and atmospheric invasion as terms involved in driving the coastal ocean CO2 system.

As part of the Commonwealth Marine Economies programme we are undertaking a sustained programme of work in the Belize Coastal Environment. This includes deploying an autonomous surface vehicle which will be equipped with a surface sampling package including various carbonate sensors, an ocean acidification monitoring system, an in-situ sampling programme focused on rivers, coral reefs and coastal waters and a land based programme focused on sampling the catchment. This project will use these data in conjunction with numerical model output and freely available satellite data to determine the primary controls over the ocean carbon system in the region. Key partners in this work are the Belize Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute (http://www.coastalzonebelize.org/) and University of Belize who will help the student exploit the historical archive of data and link the work undertaken through to policy development in the region. This studentship represents a unique opportunity to contribute to an integrated assessment of how the coastal zone carbonate system in a relatively pristine tropical environment is influenced by land ocean coupling and a changing environment.

Job opportunity: biological technician (Kodiak, Alaska)

Description

Ocean Associates, Inc. (OAI) is seeking a Biological Technician to provide support to the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC), in Kodiak, AK. OAI supplies personnel support services on contract to government and industry clients for marine fisheries and protected species. This is a position to support research aimed at developing culturing techniques for crustaceans. The work will involve daily upkeep of a seawater laboratory facility and animal care at that facility, as well as assisting with the set up and running of experiments examining the effects of ocean acidification on Alaskan crab species. In addition, this position will involve assisting with routine seawater monitoring in the facility, and will also assist with the collection of crab data in field work. This is an excellent opportunity for a person with good laboratory and animal care skills to work with important fishery species, and to live in Kodiak, AK.
