Postdoc position in dispersal simulation of floating material in satellite-derived ocean currents (1.0 FTE)
Ongeveer 24 uur geleden - Universiteit Utrecht (UU) - Utrecht
Work in an interdisciplinary project to explore Atlantic Ocean microbiome ecosystem connectivity in a changing climate.
Marine ecosystems are increasingly affected by climate change and other environmental threats. At the same time, the ocean-based economy is expected to double in the next 20 years. How can we best manage these blue ecosystem services, given the IPCC projections of changing ocean currents?
In the new AtlantECO project, involving 36 partners from across Europe, Brazil and South Africa, we will investigate how the microbial ecosystem in the Atlantic Ocean will be affected by climate change and the presence of pollutants such as plastics. The ambition of AtlantECO is to develop and apply a novel, unifying framework for providing knowledge-based resources to design policies, support decision making and engage with citizens to encourage responsible behaviour to manage the Atlantic system and protect its Ecosystem Services provision.
The Utrecht University team co-leads the Work Package that maps the multi-scale connectivity of nutrients, microbes and plastics, and their interactions, with the goal to create models to advance predictability. We are seeking a PhD or Postdoc Researcher to support this work.
During the project, you will be involved in:
By the end of the project, you will have:
