Subject: Research Technician - Oceanic carbon dioxide (CO2) studies
The Bermuda Biological Station for Research, Inc. (BBSR) is seeking an energetic and motivated research technician for several related studies on the oceanic cycling of carbon dioxide (CO2), funded by research grants from the National Science Foundation and National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. Our research at BBSR has focused on understanding the biological, chemical and physical processes that control the ocean carbon cycle and the exchange of CO2 between the ocean and the atmosphere. The project at BBSR will involve a variety of aspects including collection and analyses of seawater samples for dissolved inorganic carbon and alkalinity, as well as a maintenance and data synthesis of data collected from several automated seawater and atmospheric CO2 sensors.
The successful applicant must have at least a B.Sc. (preferably M.Sc.) degree in marine chemistry, oceanography or related subject, and several years of demonstrated technical and chemical analysis experience, preferably with CO2 analytical methods. An ability to troubleshoot and maintain seawater CO2 analytical instrumentation, requirement to participate in regular oceanographic cruises, and a high degree of self-confidence and independence is expected. Ability to program with LabView and simple basic programming languages will be an asset.
