OFFER DESCRIPTION

The FAR-DWO Project is an interdisciplinary project that aims to study the formation, propagation and seafloor impacts of dense water overflows (DWOs) in the Arctic, Antarctica and Mediterranean Sea. DWOs are buoyancy-driven currents formed by cooling, evaporation or freezing of surface ocean layers, they contribute to deep-ocean ventilation, and play a key role in the global thermohaline circulation (and hence global climate). The large volumes involved in DWOs can result in appreciable sediment transport and erosion and cause drastic impacts in deep-sea ecosystems. The FAR-DWO project aims to investigate (1) the atmospheric and oceanographic forcings for dense water formation and propagation, (2) the physical and biogeochemical characteristics of the DWOs, (3) the modern and past signals of DWOs on the seafloor and sedimentary record.

What we offer?

We offer a 4 year-contract under a FPI/FI grant. The salary will be paid in accordance with the standards of the FPI/FI fellowships.

The work will be carried out in Barcelona, Spain (Department of Earth and Ocean Dynamics, University of Barcelona). We offer an inspiring, multidisciplinary research atmosphere, collaboration with well-established international research groups from Spain, France and Iceland, and thrilling seagoing experience.
