Development Associate – PROJECT VESTA

Deadline: December 17th, 2021

Project Vesta is developing a commercial model for Coastal Carbon Capture through the sale of carbon removal credits and the expansion of our corporate, NGO, and policy partnerships. You’ll work directly with the Director of Business Development, a Cofounder and member of the Executive Team, in two areas. First, you’ll help achieve our not-for-profit fundraising goals. Second, you’ll help us build and develop relationships with key external stakeholders such as corporate partners, NGOs, and government agencies.


PhD position on funding & financing coastal nature-based solutions in Europe

Deadline: December 15, 2021

The new collaborative European Research project REST-COAST investigates nature-based solutions (NBS) (e.g. restoring coastal wetlands such as marshes and mangroves) for protecting against coastal flooding, responding to sea-level rise, capturing carbon and safeguarding biodiversity. A PhD student is sought (as well as two other open PhD positions and one postdoctoral position) to work on this topic in the work-package on funding & financing NBS of the Global Climate Forum.


Research Scientist (PostDoc) (*gn), Marine Chemistry, Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW)

Deadline: December 2, 2021

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). The position advertised here is primarily concerned with biogeochemical mechanisms, processes and possible side effects of marine CDR options.


Job: Five (5) Computational Earth Science Postdoc Positions, Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, USA

Deadline: end of fall 2021

Are you looking for opportunities to be part of an exceptional multidisciplinary team tackling some of the hardest problems facing our society, nationally and globally? The Computational Earth Science group in the Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has immediate openings for five (5) postdoctoral research associate positions. The group spans subsurface flow and transport, surface hydrology, climate, fire, wildfire, and atmospheric transport in support of both national security and environmental applications. They are seeking candidates who can contribute in one or more of these areas.

Job: Postdoctoral Scientist (all genders) – Max Planck Institute for Meteorology Germany

Deadline: November 30, 2021

The EU Horizon 2020 Project ESM2025 aims to develop the next generation of Earth System Models (ESMs) by integration of new components, the representation of interactions and couplings between the components, and the improvement of key climate processes through the use of machine learning/artificial intelligence or the use of constraints derived from available observations. The Research Group Ocean Biogeochemistry in the Department OES (The Ocean in the Earth System) is one of the major partners in ESM2025, we are looking for a Postdoctoral Scientist. The successful candidate will be part of a team developing the new Earth system model ICON-ESM. The focus of the work is on improving biogeochemical processes determining the ocean carbon sink within the model HAMOCC, the ocean biogeochemistry component of ICON-ESM.
