OFFER DESCRIPTION

Shifting sands: How does sediment movement impact benthic carbon and nutrient cycling?

At the Department of Biology, University of Southern Denmark we are pleased to announce a fully-funded PhD position to investigate how sediment movement within the ocean impacts benthic carbon and nutrient cycling. In this project, the candidate will investigate marine benthic carbon and nutrient cycling using novel Lab-on-Chip chemical sensors.

Lab-on-Chip sensors are miniaturized versions of traditional laboratory benchtop systems that perform automated measurements of carbon and nutrients. This exciting technology opens many new avenues for ocean research. Through a series of field and laboratory experiments, the candidate will explore dynamics of carbon and nutrient cycling on the seafloor, from shallow coastal zones to deep ocean trenches.

The ideal candidate should have strong analytical skills, should be passionate about fieldwork, should be willing to work at sea onboard research vessels, and should be able to work independently and as part of a team.

Deadline
15 November 2021.
