The Ocean Floor – Earth’s Uncharted Interface

MARUM - Center for Marine Environmental Sciences

Funded by the German Excellence Strategy, the new Cluster of Excellence “The Ocean Floor – Earth’s Uncharted Interface” at the University of Bremen, Germany, has the overarching goal to initiate a new chapter in ocean-floor research by quantifying exchange processes at this significant boundary layer and their roles in the Earth system. This will be achieved by: (i) deciphering processes that control the transport of biogenic particles to the ocean floor and their transformation under changing climate conditions, (ii) balancing the transfer of carbon and other elements between the ocean floor and seawater, (iii) understanding how ocean-floor ecosystems react to environmental changes, and (iv) developing scenarios for a “warmer-than-present world” from ocean-floor climate archives with the help of climate models.

Within the Cluster the University of Bremen will closely cooperate with the University of Oldenburg, Jacobs University Bremen, Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven, the Max-Planck-Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen, the Senckenberg Institute by the Sea in Wilhelmshaven, and the Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Research in Bremen.

Applications should include letter of motivation, CV, list of publications, and names of three potential referees. Positions are available under the condition of job release.

The University of Bremen follows a diversity strategy. It strives to increase the number of women in the academy and strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates.

International applications and applications of academics with a migration background are explicitly welcome.

Disabled persons with the same professional and personal qualifications will be given preference.
