> Dear colleagues,
> I would like to bring the following opening for a PhD studentship under
> your attention (see below).
> Although the methodology is intentionally left broad in the
> advertisement, depending on quality and prior experience of candidates
> the possibility exists to (at least partly) work on lipid biomarkers and
> compound-specific isotopes for reconstruction of hydroclimatic changes
> in this interesting region.
> The job offer can be found here:
> http://www.marum.de/en/Jobs__Open_Positions.html
> More info on MARUM here: www.marum.de
> Inquiries about the position should be directed to Dr. Mahyar Mohtadi
> (mmohtadi@marum.de).
> Please forward the advertisement to interested candidates.
> Cheers,
> Enno

> MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences
> The overarching scientific goal of the Research Center / Cluster of
> Excellence “The Ocean in the Earth System” (MARUM) at the University of
> Bremen, Germany, is to achieve a better understanding of key processes
> in marine environments. The research areas are: Ocean and Climate,
> Geo-Biosphere Interactions, and Sediment Dynamics.
> MARUM is offering a PhD position in the project “Land-ocean
> interaction and climate variability in low latitudes” within the MARUM
> research area “Ocean and Climate”.
> Deep convection over the Indo-Pacific Warm Pool (IPWP) is a fundamental
> driver of Earth’s atmospheric circulation with far reaching climate
> impacts. On longer timescales, changes in insolation, land-sea, zonal,
> and meridional temperature gradients, sea level, and the intensity of
> the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation are supposed to
> influence the IPWP hydroclimate. Yet the interaction between different
> forcings and the extent to which the IPWP climate feedbacks were
> involved in past abrupt climate events remain unclear owing to scant
> spatial and temporal coverage of the hitherto available reconstructions.
> In this project several geochemical parameters recorded in rapidly
> accumulating sediments from the eastern and western IPWP will be
> analyzed in order to assess past zonal and meridional gradients in
> temperature and precipitation, and to isolate the relative influence of
> different potential forcings for different scenarios. Results from this
> research project will advance our knowledge on the climate sensitivity
> of the IPWP and enable more reliable projections of low latitude climate.
> We are searching highly motivated and skilled candidates with the
> following requirements:
> ·A completed academic degree (M.Sc. or equivalent), preferentially in
> Earth Sciences or Climate Sciences with a strong background in
> chemistry, sedimentology and geophysics
> ·Excellent English language skills
> ·The ability and willingness to communicate across disciplines and
> perform collaborative, interdisciplinary research
> ·Experience in geochemical laboratory methods is advantageous
> Please address enquiries to Dr. Mahyar Mohtadi (mmohtadi@marum.de, Tel.
> 49-421-218-65660).
> The position is available under the condition of job release and is
> limited to a term of 3 years and funded by the German Science Foundation
> (DFG). Salary and benefits are commensurate with the federal German
> employee scale TV-L 13 (66.6%). Applications should include a CV, a
> statement describing research interests, the applicant’s research and
> technical background as they relate to the position, and letter of
> reference/contact information for three referees.
> More information on research and technology at the MARUM is available at
> www.marum.de
> As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female
> employees in science, women are particularly encouraged to apply.
> In case of equal personal aptitudes and qualification priority will be
> given to disabled persons.
> The University of Bremen expressly invites persons with migration
> background to apply.
> Initial deadline for the application is *July 15, 2014*. The position
> will remain open until filled. Applications should preferably be
> directed electronically as _a single PDF file_ with the reference number
> A108/14 to Dr. Mahyar Mohtadi (mmohtadi@marum.de
> <mailto:mmohtadi@marum.de>) or by mail to
> Dr. Mahyar Mohtadi
