Investigating sinking particles at sea and in the laboratory to measure their impact on ocean biological carbon cycling: it’s biochemistry and its zooplankton
- BSc Oceanography or similar
- Be able to work at sea for weeks at a time on a variety of sensors and equipment
- Be able to adapt standard laboratory methods to your own unique samples whilst maintaining both their and the time series integrity
The main role of this post is sediment trap deployment planning, preparation, sample processing and dataset publication. Additionally, I support various biogeochemical sensors at sea, programming, downloading, calibrating, dataset submission and publication.
I manage the particle flux laboratory, technicians and students who work within it; their health and safety, methods and samples.
At NOC open days, I introduce and present meso zooplankton using posters and microscopes. The stand is popular with both children and adults.
I facilitate the PAP-SO website, cruise blogs and twitter, and ensure there is a mix of news and science for a wide audience.
