Development of the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4) is underway, and nominations for regional and sectoral chapter lead authors, and contributing authors with relevant subject matter expertise, are now open. Details on chapter topics can be found at the bottom of the federal register notice. Author nominations must be submitted by September 30, 2016.
The School of Biological Sciences, University of Auckland, New Zealand, invites applications for a PhD project on the transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic responses of green-shell mussels to ocean acidification. This project is part of the CARIM project – (https://www.niwa.co.nz/coasts-and-oceans/research-projects/carim-coastal-acidification-rate-impacts-management) which examines the ecosystem effects of ocean acidification on primary production, food quality and habitat availability, with a particular focus on the sensitivity of the different life stages of iconic NZ species including pāua, greenshell mussel and snapper larvae.
SOCAN seeks a part-time Program Coordinator (~ 10 hours/week) to help increase the capacity of its network to effectively engage stakeholders. This will be a contract position. The ideal candidate must have strong communications and organizational skills and be able to work independently with a diverse group of people.
The Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean (JISAO) at the University of Washington (www.jisao.washington.edu) is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate (job class code 0148) to work on new ocean carbon observing technologies. JISAO fosters collaborative research and education between the University of Washington and NOAA, as well as with other major organizations throughout the U.S. This position will be with the JISAO/PMEL Carbon Group at the NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) in Seattle(www.pmel.noaa.gov/co2).
The Baumann lab is looking for a motivated post-doc to complement my 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.
