The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) is seeking a motivated oceanography research technician to work on the U.S. National Science Foundation funded time-series programs - Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS) and Hydrostation ‘S’. These projects are focused on understanding the processes that influence the variability of the physics and biogeochemistry of the Sargasso Sea and ultimately how these processes interact to regulate the ocean carbon cycle. Both programs have a strong field component requiring a dedicated team of scientists to perform the at-sea data and sample collection, and subsequent shore-side data processing and sample analyses.
The position will initially be for 1-year with continuation depending on job performance and starting salary will be in the range of $38,000 to $47,000 commensurate with experience andqualifications. Review of applications will start immediately with an effective starting date of October 2018.
