Observational Biogeochemist
Ocean Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems (OBE), National Oceanography Centre (NOC), 
Closing date:13th August 2017

This is a permanent position offered on NERC terms and conditions and is open 
to internal and external candidates.

About the role:
We are seeking a talented researcher with a strong track record in seagoing 
observational biogeochemistry that is focussed on understanding the interplay 
of ocean carbon and nutrient cycles. To contribute to our wide portfolio of 
research in this area, you will be expected to work within the framework of our 
existing suite of programmes in the North Atlantic and Southern Ocean, but also 
to develop your own specific focus to complement the work of NOC on this topic. 
You will have the opportunity to develop a world class programme by linking to 
other groups in NOC including biological oceanographers, satellite 
oceanographers, numerical modellers, sensor technologists and large scale ocean 
circulation experts.

This is a Band 6 position and the starting salary will be £28,200 to £30,600 
per annum.

Hours of Work:
The hours of working are full time, 37 hours per week, Monday to Friday.

About you:
You will be able to conceive, design, deliver and fund world-class research 
programmes focussed on delineating and quantifying processes involved in global 
nutrient cycles and oceanic carbon uptake and storage. You will have a PhD and 
a strong record of publication in this field. You will have experience of using 
key technology (e.g. Vindta, autoanalysers) to make high quality observations 
of the ocean carbon and nutrient cycles, both in the laboratory and at sea. You 
will have experience in organising large-scale, complex fieldwork and the 
skills to analyse large multi-disciplinary datasets, possibly including 
satellite data and model output, to address major scientific questions. You 
will have a proven ability to communicate your research and its relevance and 
be willing to attend national and international meetings to do this. You will 
be willing to work at sea.

What we can offer you:
In return for your talents, we offer a competitive remuneration package, 
including an RCUK pension scheme, 30 days annual leave with a further 14 
Public/local days off and free car-parking. Opportunities for further training 
and development are supported.

About us:
The National Oceanography Centre (NOC), part of the Natural Environment 
Research Council, is a national research organisation, delivering integrated 
marine science and technology from the coast to the deep ocean and is one of 
the top five institutions of its kind in the world.

With sites in Liverpool and Southampton, it is the UK’s leading centre for 
technology development, coastal and deep ocean research and sea level science. 
Working closely with its partners and associates, it provides capability to 
meet needs across the UK marine science community (

In particular, NOC is a world-leading centre for the study of the biological 
carbon pump and its links to global nutrient cycles. In particular, NOC has a 
reputation for delivering large-scale multi-disciplinary projects drawing on 
experts from across NOC’s research groups, from development of new sensors and 
use of autonomous vehicles, through laboratory and sea-based analyses to global 
biogeochemical modelling.
