Geochemical Modeler

Running Tide is an ocean technology company built to tackle humanity’s most urgent challenge: climate change. We build cutting-edge solutions that integrate engineered and biological systems to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, restore ecosystems, and secure food systems. Our multidisciplinary team of world-class scientists, engineers and maritime operators is working as fast as possible while the world is burning.

We’re looking for a Geochemical Modeler to work with our R&D team on designing and modeling carbon removal solutions utilizing an Ocean Alkalinization Enhancement (OAE) pathway. The Geochemical Modeler will apply their knowledge of ocean chemistry to design interventions and understand intervention impact at whole-Earth scale using computational models. This is a full-time salaried remote position with the option to work locally in Portland, Maine.

You Will:
- Perform hands-on modeling for carbon sequestration via marine carbon dioxide removal technologies (i.e. Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement, macroalgae cultivation)
- Contribute to the design of carbon sequestration strategies by demonstrating intervention impact using computational models
- Guide the development of laboratory and field experiments to enhance Running Tide’s knowledge of ocean chemistry
- Contribute to Running Tide’s Ocean Modeling Platform
- Work with leading ocean and climate models like MITgcm

You Are (or You Have):
- A recent PhD or postdoc, or industry equivalent, in chemistry, oceanography, or related field with an emphasis on quantitative and model-based techniques; knowledgeable of and fluent with research-standard models and tools.
- Experience with reactive transport modeling, marine geochemistry, fluid-rock-gas interactions
- Experience investigating chemical reactions between atmosphere, rock (or other porous media), and seawater brine interface
- In-depth knowledge of the ocean carbon cycle
- An Earth-system perspective of geochemical cycles
- Fluency with Python and Object Oriented Programming paradigms
- Eager to collaborate with a fast-moving team and support large-scale carbon sequestration initiatives

Bonus Points:
- Experience building complex computational models
- Experience with reservoir characterization and saline fluid chemistry

Expected Compensation Range: $110,000-140,000 annually, depending on experience

Our teams operate with utmost persistence. We are tackling the world’s most difficult and important problems, and we are unwavering in our motivation to find a solution. At our core, we are innovators driven to do "more good" rather than "less bad" in the world.

Running Tide is committed to building a diverse team, bringing as many possible perspectives to bear on the unprecedented challenges facing our planet. We are committed to building an inclusive environment where people of all backgrounds can come to do their best work.

All offers of employment at Running Tide are contingent upon clear results of a thorough background check.
