Background In the division "Biosciences", section “Shelf Seas Systems Ecology” (Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) we are looking for a Bachelor/ Master student (Biology/Ecology/Physiology).
Project description The research consortium RETAKE (https: // retake.cdrmare.de/en/) assesses the potential, feasibility, and side effects of Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement (OAE) as a means to reliably and sustainably remove CO2 from the atmosphere. RETAKE will examine a range of mineral alkalinity sources with respect to dissolution kinetics, CO2 sequestration potential, and side effects on chemistry and biology.
There will be an in situ mesocosm experiment on OAE in Helgoland from 10th March to 24th April 2023. We will check for possible ecological and biogeochemical impacts of OAE on the zooplankton community.
Further Information The place of employment will be Helgoland
Period: 2/3 months
Start: March 2023
Deadline for application: 15 th February 2023
