Upcoming research opportunities

Senior Research Associate - to conduct studies on marine carbonate chemistry as part of the BIO-Carbon CHALKY (Coccolithophore controls on ocean alkalinity) project (12 months)

Go to the University of East Anglia's website for full details of this opportunity

You will be an experienced professional researcher and subject specialist, drawing upon knowledge gained from your PhD research and/or working within a Grade 6 Research Associate role. You will be line managed by the Co- Investigator (Co-I) of the project. You will be associated with the BIO-Carbon CHALKY (Coccolithophore controls on ocean alkalinity) project and will contribute ideas, and/or enhancement of techniques or methodologies. You will be expected to regularly disseminate your findings by taking the lead in preparing publication materials, and presenting at conferences and other appropriate events. While working under supervision, you will also be expected to plan and manage your own research activity in collaboration with others and take significant initiatives in your work, consulting with the Co-Investigator over the details of the project. 

You will have a PhD level research degree in Chemical Oceanography, equivalent qualification or experience in a relevant research area. You will also have experience of independent research, have publications in respected journals or equivalent within the field and be able to work in a proactive and results driven manner in a high paced environment. You will also have strong interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to analyse and interpret data and work effectively as part of a team. Advanced skills in carbonate chemistry analysis and air-sea CO2 flux quantification directly related to the research project and experience in teaching small classes/overseeing practical classes would be advantageous.

The post is available from 1 August 2024 on a full-time basis for a fixed term period of 12 months.

Application deadline: 3rd June 2024
