Post-doctoral opportunity 2017 [closed]

This opportunity has been closed

The Baumann Lab is seeking a motivated post-doc to complement our growing lab in 2017, helping to study the combined effects of warming, acidification and deoxygenation on marine fish, in particular on early live stages. We look for a candidate to conduct novel multistressor experiments within and across generations of key forage fish such as Atlantic silversides (Menidia menidia) or Northern sand lance (Ammodytes dubius). This NSF funded work will elucidate short-term as well as whole life cycle consequences of multistressor environments using a mixture of field, experimental and modeling approaches. The ideal candidate will try to broaden the scope of the research of our lab by bringing novel aspects, approaches, or techniques to our existing expertise.

Minimum Qualifications: Completion of a Ph.D. in biological oceanography, physiology, or closely related area; and experience with laboratory experimentation and data analysis.

Preferred Qualifications: Prior experience with ocean acidification / hypoxia experiments on marine organisms. Familiarity with parametric and non-parametric statistical approaches. A strong publishing record from previous PhD- and potential post-doctoral work.

Appointment Terms: The postdoctoral position is annually renewable for two years with the possibility of extension contingent to additional funding resources. The position offers a competitive salary with generous health benefits.
