Job opportunity: Staff chemist – ocean acidification

The Ocean Acidification Program at Mote Marine Laboratory seeks a staff chemist with a minimum 2 years experience with experimental seawater ocean acidification facilities including carbonate chemistry experience. This position will be permanently located in Summerland Key, Florida at the Elizabeth Moore International Center for Coral Reef Restoration and Research (IC2R3). General duties to be performed include working with research-focused outdoor raceways and the CAOS (Climate and Acidification Ocean Simulator) at IC2R3. This includes sample collection, monitoring and analysis of total seawater alkalinity, dissolved inorganic carbon, spectrophotometric pH, and other water quality parameters. Tasks also include maintaining the dry ocean acidification (OA) laboratory, maintaining the dry chemistry laboratory, keeping track of and ordering all supplies and materials, keeping all OA-related work organized, instrument maintenance, data entry, and some field work. This position will also involve some specific experimental and field work on OA and organism response to OA. The staff chemist will also be responsible for managing and mentoring student interns year round. This position might require longer days and weekend work. Travel to the main lab in Sarasota, Florida is possible. Must be able to lift up to 40 lbs. and must be able to work in a hot/outdoor environment.

Job announcement: Postdoc in marine chemistry, Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW)

Job Description: The IOW pursues chemical, biological, geological, and physical observations in marine ecosystems, applying and improving most advanced measurement techniques. In the framework of the project SPECTROPHABS (Spectrophotometric pH-measurements for monitoring of marine acidification in the Baltic Sea), based on the results of the project BONUS PINBAL (, we aim to address remaining open questions towards a long-term stable monitoring of pH in the Baltic Sea. On the long run, the project should lead into operational routines for spectrophotometric pH measurement in the Baltic Sea and hence, the development of a strategy towards long-term monitoring of pH and marine acidification in a complex brackish water environment. Individual goals of the project include i.) evaluation of the currently commercially available instrumentation for spectrophotometric pH measurements in seawater; ii.) a strict uncertainty evaluation as function of the key parameters affecting the measurement, iii.) evaluation of problems resulting from the limited
availability of the purified indicator dye and iv) demonstration of routine
measurement schemes within the German monitoring activities.
