11 PhDs at HOSST, Kiel, Germany

HOSST pools the complementary expertise of the Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (GEOMAR), the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, the Dalhousie University and the Halifax Marine Research Institute (HMRI) and is organized around three themes which encompass key sensitivities of the North Atlantic to external forcing and resource exploitation: 4D Ocean Dynamics, Ecosystem Hotspots and Seafloor Structures. Interactions within and between these themes regulate how the ocean system responds to both anthropogenic and natural change.

Professors, Marine Biogeochemistry & Marine Robotic Engineering, Florida Atlantic University

Research Professor, Marine Robotic Engineering (#980007)
Interests in evolving and transformational technologies to develop unique underwater tools for application to ocean science.

Research Professor, Marine Biogeochemistry (#980008)
Interests may include the biogeochemistry of carbon, nitrogen, and other biologically important elements, or emerging contaminant pathways and biomagnification in food webs.


Postdoctoral fellowships in Marine Science, LabexMer, France

Aim: to give creative young scientists (PhD + 3 years) the opportunity to develop their own research project in one of the LabexMER laboratories in Brest, South Brittany or in Nantes (France).

Fellows are appointed for two years.

Research projects must be relevant to the LabexMER research axes. These axes involve many disciplines (physics, biology, chemistry, geology, geophysics, geography, ecology…) and encompass the global ocean, the deep ocean and the coastal environment.

Summer internship, Deep Sea Restoration Policy, North Carolina, USA

Human activity, including energy  and mineral extraction, deep sea trawling, and even scientific exploration are altering deep sea habitats. Yet, there is little understanding or agreement about what steps should be taken to counter these changes.  In November, Duke University and partners from around the world will convene a high-level workshop to explore these issues.
