The Position The main responsibilities of the Postdoctoral/Research Fellow role include, but are not limited to: Prepare and participate in MIZ and Denman marine science voyages for the sampling of trace metals in the water column and surficial sediments, Determine trace element concentration and isotope composition of water column and sediment samples using state-of-the-art methods such as MC-ICP-MS. Evaluate the links between trace elements and isotopes and oceanographic (physical and biological) features in the areas of interest.

The position may also include using sediment records to reconstruct trace element cycling on the Antarctic continental shelf and slope through time or culturing relevant Southern Ocean phytoplankton and linking their trace element requirement to field measurements made on the MIZ and Denman marine science voyages. The Person To excel in this role, you will have: A PhD (or awarding of a PhD within six months of appointment commencement for appointments at level A) in marine biogeochemistry, chemical oceanography, or other relevant fields.
