3 Post-doctoral Fellowships in Ocean Modelling Cape Town, South Africa

#1 Post by NicoletteChang »

For full description please see https://socco.org.za/position/3-post-do ... modelling/

The CSIR’s Southern Ocean Carbon – Climate Observatory programme is seeking 3 (three) Post-doctoral Researchers as part of a collaboration between its Ocean Systems and Climate group and the Marine Research Institute (Ma-Re) at the University of Cape Town (UCT). These appointments are linked to 3 EU H2020 projects (SO-CHIC, COMFORT & AtlantECO) in which CSIR-SOCCO is a partner. The opportunities are based in the Rosebank, Cape Town office of the CSIR, formalized through a research associate fellowship at Ma-Re, UCT.

The appointments are temporary for a period of two years (with the possibility of an extension for a third year). The post-doctorate research will align with the science plans of the Southern Ocean Carbon - Climate Observatory (SOCCO); a multi-institutional and inter-disciplinary South African initiative whose aims are to understand the link between climate and the carbon cycle in the Southern Ocean (http://socco.org.za/).

POST DOC 1: Southern Ocean CO2 and Heat Uptake
POST DOC 2: Southern Ocean Emerging Feedbacks in Carbon Cycle
POST DOC 3: Southern Ocean Biogeochemical Model Development

• To initiate further independent research within the strategic objectives of the current programme.
• Assist with PhD/MSc supervision of students in support of the SOCCO/UCT-Ma-Re human capital development mission.
• Lead, assist and supervise field data collection and model development
• Contribute to the writing of numerous reviewed journal publications, of which the successful candidate would be expected to be the lead author of at least two.

• A PhD in Ocean CO2 or biogeochemical modelling and or observations but with some modelling experience
• Experience in acquiring and processing large global data sets as well as running and analysing model outputs.
• Proficiency in Python coding

Should you meet the above requirements, please send your cv and the contact details of 2 referees to Dr Pedro Monteiro: pmonteir@csir.co.za and Dr Sandy Thomalla: sandy.thomalla@gmail.com
