1. MSc degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, oceanography, environmental protection or related disciplines.
2. Knowledge on carbon cycling in the environment (knowledge of marine CO2 system will be an advantage).
3. Experience in laboratory work and chemical analyses.
4. Very good written and spoken English.
5. Experience in fieldwork, public presentations and preparation of scientific manuscripts will be an additional advantage.
The Earth system changes at a rapid pace, with serious regional or even global consequences. These are for instance: climate change, global warming, sea level rise or ocean acidification. The root cause of all these changes is continuously rising CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. This increase is partially mitigated by the world ocean, which absorbs about 22% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Most of the mechanisms shaping the CO2 content in seawater are identified, even though some of them have not been perfectly parametrized yet. However, there is one feedback loop that has entirely escaped the attention of Earth system scientists so far, but may exert a significant impact on the Arctic marine ecosystems and the global carbon cycle. This is the influence of organic acids released from permafrost via their acidic functional groups on the acid-base balance in the marine environment. This interaction together with remineralization of permafrost-derived organic matter have a potential to change the marine CO2 system and seawater pH.
The main goal of the doctoral dissertation will be to characterize the marine CO2 system variability in regions affected by the release of organic matter from thawing permafrost. Particular attention will be paid to quantifying the influence of organic acids and organic matter remineralization on seawater pH and the air/sea CO2 exchange. Field studies will be conducted in Spitsbergen fjords, while the analytical part in the laboratories of the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Sopot.
The PhD student's tasks include: (1) preparation, organization and participation in research cruises in the Spitsbergen fjords, (2) assessing the marine CO2 system variability in regions affected by the release of organic matter from thawing permafrost, (3) Quantifying the effects of organic acids and organic matter remineralization on the marine CO2 system and especially on pCO2 and pH variability in seawater (4) performing statistical analyses and interpretation of the obtained results, (5) preparing scientific articles, (6) presenting the obtained results at national and international scientific conferences.
Duration: 4 years (8 semesters), from October 2020
Scholarship: 4000 PLN per month throughout the entire period of the study (4 years)
Application deadline: 27th August 2020
The settlement of the competition: 30th September 2020
According to this position Candidate must become a PhD student at the International Environmental Doctoral School associated with the Centre for Polar Studies at the University of Silesia in Katowice (IEDS). Title of PhD project: Impact of organic matter released from permafrost on the marine CO2 system.
