The Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry is looking for a Post-doctoral Researcher to contribute to our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from estuaries project. The ARC funded position will be offered for 3 years, with the possibility of a further fixed term contract dependent upon performance and additional external funding being available.
This project will use an innovative combination of continuous underway concentration and stable isotope measurements, floating chamber flux measurements, benthic process measurements and advanced numerical modelling across a range of undisturbed to disturbed systems to resolve the factors controlling the emission of CO2, CH4 and N2O from estuaries. This project is designed to test three hypotheses: (1) there will be distinct differences in the production, and emission of GHG, across the gradient of estuarine disturbance; (2) that continuous underway measurement of stable isotopes and isotopomers will be able to distinguish the sources and production pathways of GHG; and (3) that the advanced numerical model, once calibrated against the continuous underway concentration and stable isotope measurements, water-air flux measurements, benthic process measurements and flow-weight loads, will be able to provide accurate predictions of estuarine GHG emissions.
Preferred starting- February 2016.
