par Valérie PLOUVIN - publié le

Post-Doctoral position available at the University of Lille – Station Marine de Wimereux :Environmental Marine Biogeochemistry – Exchanges at the Sediment-water and sediment-air interfaces

Duration/dates : 12 months, from 1 January to 31 December 2019

Deadline for application : October 26, 2018

Summary :
A postdoc position (1 year) within the field of Marine Geochemistry is available at the Department Station Marine de Wimereux (Laboratory of Oceanology and Geosciences - LOG – UMR 8187) at the Faculty of Science and Technology (FST), in the French University of Lille. The main field of the new position will be on the sediment-water interface biogeochemistry in relation to the marine ecosystem dynamics and in particular towards processes occurring in intertidal, shallow sediments and estuaries. Major part of the research of the position will focus on measurements of sediment-water or sediment-air exchanges, with the objective to obtain C budgets. The research part of this position has a special focus on the various approaches designed to obtain estimates of sediment-water/air exchanges (total/diffusive fluxes, microsensors, benthic chambers, whole core incubation, eddy covariance system).
Collaboration with existing conceptual model studies on sediment-water interactions, and application of existing coupled transport biogeochemical ecological models will be part of the research.

The Postdoc will join the Laboratory of Oceanography and Geosciences as a researcher in the field of Marine Biogeochemistry.
