Ocean and Coastal Acidification Web Manager and Collaboration Facilitator

Northeastern Regional Association for Coastal Ocean Observing Systems (NERACOOS)

The OCA Web Manager and Collaboration Facilitator will be responsible for maintaining the content of the ocean acidification collaboration website. They will also be responsible for maintaining workspace tools used by collaboration teams to effectively coordinate activities and communicate domestically and internationally. The qualified candidate will ensure a current and attractive website that highlights activities and issues related to ocean acidification that are of interest to a range of stakeholders. S/he will also work to build the number of users of the collaboration website and to guide current users to fully utilize the website capacities. Administratively, the candidate will employ web-based tools to coordinate implementation team meetings, maintain a calendar of events, keep and maintain mailing lists, and manage documents through the website to ensure smooth and ongoing communication within and between collaboration teams. The OCA Web Manager and Collaboration Facilitator will be responsible for reporting on website activities to the community and general public through website content and other means.

Oceanographer

Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission

The Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission has an open position for an oceanographer. This position will focus primarily on changing ocean conditions and associated impacts to species of interest, specifically as they relate to tribal ocean fishery resources. The species of interest include all marine species of importance to the coastal tribes that includes, but not limited to the following: flatfish, rockfish, halibut, groundfish (e.g., sablefish, lingcod and Pacific whiting), and forage fish (e.g., sardine and smelt) as well as the base of food web that these species depend upon. The incumbent will work under the direction of the coastal tribe’s fishery managers and their pertinent technical staff to support their marine science needs. This position will participate within international, federal, state and inter-tribal forums as well as scientific collaboratives as requested by the coastal tribes to observe, analyze, and report on the impacts of changing ocean condition related to treaty resources and ocean fishery management. This position will keep the coastal tribes informed on the current state of knowledge with changing ocean conditions and work with technical staff and partner researchers to conduct novel research in understanding how changing ocean conditions will impact treaty resources. The position will apply for grant funding, write grant reports, and publish scientific literature that will benefit the interests and concerns of the coastal tribes.

Postdoctoral Opportunity: Biogeochemical Modelling

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel

GEOMAR is looking for candidates with a strong interest in Earth system modelling and model assessment. The research project will focus on the selection of indicators and development of metrics to assess a number of climate engineering ideas (such as afforestation, ocean alkalinisation, solar radiation management,…) in the context of mitigation. Tools will be developed and tested on the basis of model simulations of various climate engineering scenarios employing new and already existing runs of intermediate complexity (UVic) and complex Earth system (MPI-ESM) models. Metric development will account for model uncertainties (e.g. by analysing perturbed parameter ensembles) and include collaboration with scientists from other disciplines engaged in the Priority Program, such as social sciences, international law and ethics, and some readiness to engage in interdisciplinary work is required.

PHD Opportunity: The changing carbonate chemistry of the Southern Ocean

University of East Anglia

Until now, sea ice dynamics and ocean acidification in the Southern Ocean have been investigated in isolation. Here, you will investigate the interplay between both. This PhD project has these objectives:

  • To quantify the progression of ocean acidification in the Southern Ocean over recent decades;
  • To determine the processes affecting Southern Ocean carbonate chemistry and in particular the role of sea ice.
  • To study the seasonal cycle of the Southern Ocean CO2 sink and its drivers.

NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Will ocean acidification increase the toxicity of chronic coastal pollutants?

University of Exeter

Using a combination of aquarium based experiments and field work, this studentship will build on this previous research to examine OA pollutant interactions over a range of priority pollutants and pharmaceuticals expected to be pH sensitive within the OA range. It will also examine the role of organisms’ natural exposure to varying pH within their natural habitats in determining their sensitivities to combined OA-pollutant exposures.
