Postdoctoral Fellow: Ocean Acidification/Chemical Oceanography


The School of Science, Auckland University of Technology, seeks to hire a postdoctoral fellow to join our Ocean Acidification research team. The successful candidate will have a PhD in chemical oceanography or related field and experience with the carbonate chemistry of seawater, analyses of alkalinity, dissolved inorganic carbon and inorganic nutrients. You will conduct a series of laboratory experiments to discern the effects of carbon dioxide perturbations on the sediment–seawater exchange of dissolved inorganic nutrients and underlying microbial processes. A strong publication record, in-depth understanding of the biogeochemistry of marine sediments, willingness to conduct regular seagoing field trips and to supervise the ocean acidification research projects of undergraduate and postgraduate students will be an advantage.


This is a full-time, two-year appointment. The position is based in Auckland, New Zealand. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2016 and it is anticipated that the position will commence no later than November 1, 2016. Please send cover letter, CV and the names of three references to Dr. Kay C. Vopel:

June 2015: Pete's research published in PLOS ONE.

October 2014: Pete joins the Waikato Regional Council.

April 2014: Aysha's research published in the EGU journal Biogeosciences.
