An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Research Associate to join the School of Environmental Sciences to conduct studies on Marine Biogeochemistry.

We are looking for a Senior Research Associate (SRA) in biological carbon pump research to work on a project investigating the role of coccolithophores in marine carbon cycling and how this might change in a warmer ocean. The post is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) as part of its BIO-carbon program, which aims to better understand carbon cycling and the biological carbon pump in the North Atlantic. The project is looking specifically at Challenge 1 of BIO-carbon, and how the respiration of coccolithophores and bacteria influence carbon cycling and air-sea fluxes of carbon dioxide. 

You will be responsible for at-sea measurements of the respiration of different size classes of the plankton using standard and novel techniques. You will be expected to participate in a field campaign planned for May-June 2024 onboard one of NERCs state-of-the-art research ships. During the field campaign and on return to the laboratory, you will be responsible for working with the wider BIO-carbon team and close collaborators to process samples and analyse the data. 
 
You will have a PhD level research degree in Biological or 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 must meet all essential criteria within the candidate brochure. 
 
This full-time post is available on a fixed term basis for up to 14 months.

  • 44 days annual leave inclusive of Bank Holidays and University Customary days (pro rata for part-time).
