People and Openings

We are always looking for highly motivated graduate students with an exceptional prior academic record to join our research group. We are involved in a number of international projects to investigate the biogeochemistry of natural and anthropogenic organic matter. Students should expect to participate in several cruises and spend part of their time at partner institutions abroad. Our lab is equipped with a variety of in situ sensors and laboratory based analytical instruments for state of the art research. We recently also acquired a Slocum Ocean glider for large scale ocean surveys.
