1. Academy Mainz seeks Postdoctoral Researcher
Tracer Oceanography
Kiel, Germany

The Academy Mainz seeks applicants for a postdoctoral position in tracer
oceanography. The position is funded for 35 months and is located at the
GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel, Germany.

This position is part of a bilateral initiative on the Arctic between
Germany and Russia and will work within the cooperative project entitled
"The Transpolar System of the Arctic Ocean." The purpose of the position
is to develop a better understanding of paleoclimate variabilities and
processes in the Arctic.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in oceanography, physics,
geosciences, or related sciences. Other requirements include English
language skills, a solid publication record within the respective field
of work, and the willingness to work in a team and participate in
expeditions with durations of several weeks. Previous work with isotope
data will be an advantage. The candidate will closely cooperate with
partner institutions and present results at project-related workshops
and international meetings.

The successful candidate will investigate the impact of sea-ice
processes on the hydrology of the Laptev Sea shelf and the Fram Strait
area based on the stable oxygen isotope composition of seawater. The
successful candidate will conduct water sampling within a team of German
and Russian partners and will evaluate the isotope analyses. This
includes a water mass analysis and isotope data and the calculation of
water mass budgets. A close cooperation on neodymium isotopes and
oceanographic and atmospheric data obtained by other partners within the
project will be required.

Application deadline: Thursday, 28 February 2013.

Applications for this position should include a cover letter naming two
references, curriculum vitae, and a list of publications and other
