We are looking for a PostDoc to join our Arctic Ocean biogeochemical modelling team. The position is part of the Horizon2020 CRiceS “Climate relevant interactions and feedbacks: the key role of sea-ice and snow in the polar and global climate system” research project and focusses on modelling the production and exchange of climate active gases and biogenic material in ice-covered region. More specifically, the position aims at improving biogeochemical processes in the ocean, sea-ice and snow using a NEMO based modelling system with ocean and ice ecosystems, sulphur and carbon cycles using the Canadian Ocean Ecosystem (CanOE) and the Canadian Sea-ice biogeochemistry model (CSIB).

The position is situated at the University of Victoria (School of Earth and Ocean Sciences) with links to the Institute of Ocean Sciences (Fisheries and Oceans Canada) and the Canadian Center for Climate Modeling and Analysis (Environment and Climate Change Canada). The project will involve close collaboration with other CRiceS research groups from Europe, South Africa, India and Canada. The position is for a duration of 2.5 years with possible extension to 3 years and a tentative start date of April 2022. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic researcher with expertise in numerical modelling (specific expertise in biogeochemical cycles and experience with the NEMO modelling system is an asset), who is interested in working within a team and international research environment. We welcome applications from all genders, nationalities and ethnic backgrounds.

For additional information and to apply for the position please contact Dr. Nadja Steiner: Nadja.steiner@ec.gc.ca . Applications will need to include a cover letter and CV including publication list and contact information for references.
