From Birgit Schneider <>
Date Thu, 1 Feb 2018 11:02:46 +0100

Dear colleagues,
please find below the announcement of a postdoc position in paleo biogeochemical ocean modeling. Please feel free to forward it also to interested candidates.
Sorry for any cross-postings.
Kind regards,

At the Institute of Geosciences at University of  Kiel (CAU), Germany, there is a vacancy of a Postdoc position:

SFB 754 addresses the physical, chemical and biological mechanisms driving the development and maintenance of oxygen minimum zones in the tropical oceans. For the proposed position a complex marine biogeochemical model will be applied in combination with an Atmosphere Ocean General Circulation Model (AOGCM) to investigate the development of OMZs from the geological past (last 10 kyrs) into the future.


·      PhD in oceanography, physics, geosciences or a related field

·      experience in marine biogeochemistry and numerical modeling is required

·      excellent oral and written communication skills in English are expected

·      interest and ability to work independently but team-oriented in a young, international research group

The position is until December 2019 and the starting date is as soon as possible. The salary corresponds to the level of TV-L E13 of the German public service salary scale.
