Ocean Career: Alfred-Wegener Institute Marine Data Manager Associate Research Scientist ECO Posted On November 22, 2023 The overall objective of the Helmholtz Young Investigator Group SOS-iClimate is to answer the question how melting Antarctic ice masses alter the ocean salinity and circulation and if these changes will amplify or dampen global warming in the future. For this purpose, we will identify and quantify the causes of past and future salinity changes in the Southern Ocean using ocean tracers, in particular seawater stable isotopes.These tracers serve as a fingerprint of impact of rapidly melting ice masses on the ocean’s salinity and we will use them to constrain climate model simulations.TasksThis position will use existing and newly collected measurements of the seawater stable isotopic composition from ship-board sample collection in the Southern Ocean to build a novel data base that can be used to trace the imprint of melting ice and changing surface moisture fluxes on... the ocean. Through this effort, the position will contribute to the understanding of ongoing rapid changes in the Southern Ocean.Specifically, this position willsearch and identify existing data records of seawater stable isotopes from the Southern Oceaninquire and record metadatamerge and reformat multiple data setsassess data quality and quantify biases and uncertaintiescoordinate and participate in international laboratory intercomparison studiesfacilitate the collection and analysis of new observational data from the Southern Oceanpublish a statistical and technical assessment of the data set in peer-reviewed journalRequirementsIdeally, you should hold a Ph.D. degree related to Earth, climate, or environmental sciences. However, also applications of candidates that hold a M.S. degree in a related field will be considered.
