Open position: Funded PhD opportunity in ocean carbon observing technologies, National Oceanography Centre (NOC), Southamption, UK

NOC are seeking a PhD candidate who will lead the optimisation of novel autonomous sensor and sampler technologies through laboratory tests and field trials, integrated on autonomous platforms such as the Autosub Long Range and gliders (e.g. SEAEXPLORER). The successful candidate will demonstrate these technologies and develop new autonomous observing strategies during planned and funded sea trials to the North and mid-latitude Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.

The candidate will collaborate with the wider European ocean carbon observing community and observing technology developers through project GEORGE and will join new deployment opportunities (e.g. Liguria Sea, Porcupine Abyssal Plane) as they become available, collecting data which will improve our understanding of ocean acidification and carbon dynamics. The potential of these new technologies for citizen science and capacity building applications in developing countries will also be addressed.

Deadline for applications is 3rd January 2024. Read more and apply here:
