Postdoctoral Opportunity: Fisheries Oceanography and Eastern Boundary Upwelling Ecosystems

University of South Carolina

The University of South Carolina (Columbia, South Carolina, USA) and the Belle W. Baruch Institute for Marine and Coastal Sciences is seeking a postdoctoral fellow, funded by the Nippon Foundation-Nereus Program, to join our interdisciplinary team of researchers to explore the responses of forage fish populations in eastern boundary upwelling ecosystems to physical and biogeochemical variability associated with future climate change. The goal of the project is estimation of fisheries productivity given projected changes in upwelling intensity and seasonality, nutrient stoichiometry, acidification, and plankton production and composition.

Postdoctoral opportunity: Ocean and Coastal Acidification and Hypoxia Effects on Marine and Estuarine Organisms

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The participant will collaborate with a team of EPA scientists on several papers and laboratory-based research efforts investigating the effects of ocean and nutrient-enhanced coastal acidification on marine and estuarine organisms, including coral, invertebrates, and fish. The research includes laboratory investigations of the interactive effects of acidification and hypoxia on a range of species and life stages of estuarine organisms.
