In the frame of the project RETURN (multi-Risk sciEnce for resilienT commUnities undeR a changiNg climate) financed by the Italian National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR - NextGenerationEU funds), the research group in Dynamics of Ecosystems and Computational Oceanography (ECHO) of the Oceanography Section of OGS (https://www.ogs.it/en) is hiring 3 PostDocs (deadline for applications: 23 June).
Call for a PostDoc position on the topic of "Development and calibration of an ecosystem model of the Upper Tyrrhenian and Ligurian Sea region to be used for scenario analysis of the effects of management practices".
The post-doc will be developed at the headquarters of OGS in Livorno (Italy), in collaboration with the Consorzio per il Centro Interuniversitario di Biologia Marina ed Ecologia Applicata “G. Bacci” di Livorno (CIBM).
In the frame of 4 projects financed by the Italian National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR - NextGenerationEU funds), the research group in Dynamics of Ecosystems and Computational Oceanography of the Oceanography Section of OGS (https://www.ogs.it/en) is hiring 14 staff units for researchers and technologists (NEW deadline for applications: 19th May).
Seamless is a H2020 project aimed at improving the current European capability to simulate and predict the state of marine ecosystems. The project focuses on state indicators that are linked to the ocean “health” (e.g. to oxygenation, acidification, eutrophication), “services” (e.g. to sustainable aquaculture) and “response” to climate change (e.g. to the transfer of carbon in the ocean depths).

Map of the vertically integrated mean annual primary production in the Mediterranean Sea shelf and open seas for 2013 as in Teruzzi et al. (2018; https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ocemod.2018.09.007).
The 2nd edition of the Copernicus Marine Service Ocean State Report (OSR 2) published in 2018 provides information on changes and variations in the ocean over the past decades, with a focus on changes in the marine environment during the year 2016. It is written by nearly 100 scientific experts from more than 30 institutions and draws from the marine monitoring capabilities of the Copernicus Marine Service.
Cover: In Rosati et al. (https://doi.org/10.1002/2017GB005700), Rosati et al. found elevated concentrations of Hg and MeHg in the euxinic waters of the Black Sea.
By integrating observations from the GEOTRACES cruise and 1D biogoechemical modeling along the extended redox gradient of the Black Sea, the work highlights that the bulk of MeHg is produced in situ in anoxic sulfidic waters, and inputs from external sources (i.e. rivers, sediment and the Mediterranean Sea) are negligible.
