The IOW is an independent institute of the Leibniz Association, engaged in system analysis of coastal and marginal seas, with regional focus on the Baltic Sea. The scientists of the four departments (Marine Geology, Physical Oceanography and Instrumentation, Marine Chemistry, and Biological Oceanography) cooperate within the framework of a joint research program.
The employment is within the framework of the BMBF-funded project ASMASYS (Unified ASsessment framework for proposed methods of MArine CDR and interim knowledge SYnthesiS):
The project is part of the activities of the research mission " Marine Carbon Sinks in Decarbonization Pathways" of the German Alliance for Marine Research (DAM):
Additional information about the research mission:
The mission addresses the question whether and by which measures in the marine environment (CDR - Carbon Dioxide Removal) the atmospheric CO2 levels can be reduced. Within ASMASYS, an assessment framework is developed in a transdisciplinary environment, applied to different options of marine CO2 removal, and hereon, an (intermediate) synthesis is developed.
The position advertised here is primarily concerned with biogeochemical mechanisms, processes and possible side effects of marine CDR options. The work will be carried out in close cooperation with the project partners, who have a broad range of expertise.
