Postdoc position within coastal ecosystem metabolism

Department of Bioscience at Aarhus University invites applications for a one-year post doc position within the topic: “Effects of benthic habitats on coastal ecosystem metabolism”. The position is available from as soon as possible.

The candidate must have research experience within the field of application of high frequency sensor based sampling of physical and chemical data. Experiences should cover, handling large complex time series data sets in software such as R, to perform QA/QC of data and experiences with modelling of metabolic rates using inverse modelling techniques.

The post doc project is expected to produce a thorough analysis of spatial and temporal variations in coastal ecosystem metabolic rates in test sites in Limfjorden, Denmark. Focus of the analysis will be to assess the importance of different habitats for magnitude and variability in aquatic metabolic rates. Besides analysis of data, the candidate will contribute to writing a report on the importance of boulder reefs on the physical, chemical and biological functioning in Limfjorden.

The successful candidate must have a PhD in aquatic sciences, marine ecology or a closely related field. Documented experience with measurement and analysis of high frequency data for the analysis of aquatic metabolism is a clear advantage.

Department of Bioscience is organized in 17 different sections working within the areas of freshwater, marine and terrestrial science, wild life ecology, biodiversity, physiology and ecotoxicology. The postdoc position is situated in the Section for Marine Diversity and Experimental Ecology that has a main focus on marine nutrients, diversity and habitats as well as ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry. The section is widely involved in monitoring and advisory work for the Ministry of Environment and Food.

The activities take place at a national and international level with main activities in Denmark, Northern Europa and maybe the Arctic.
