Postdoctoral Associate: Bioinformatics Approaches to Evaluating Responses and Adaptive Capacity to High pCO2 in Alaska Crabs and Fish

NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center

The Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC) is seeking a postdoctoral associate with bioinformatics expertise to examine transcriptomic responses to ocean acidification (OA) and temperature on commercially and economically important crab and fish species. This project will build upon the understanding gained through laboratory experimentation by applying next-generation sequencing techniques to identify the specific alterations in the molecular, metabolic, and physiological pathways of individuals exposed to OA. Whole-genome sequencing of the individuals that demonstrate low sensitivity to OA and will be compared to the general population. By linking the transcriptomic response to the physiological effects successful candidate will work to understand the pathways that impart tolerance and how adaptation will alter the species’ response to future ocean conditions.

Announcing Ocean Acidification Graduate Research Fellowships in Texas and Louisiana

Proposals due April 17, 2020

The Louisiana Sea Grant and Texas Sea Grant Programs, in partnership with the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP), are pleased to announce the availability of Ocean Acidification Graduate Research Fellowships for the two-year period covering the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 academic years. The fellowship provides a total award of $46,000 per year for two years.

The fellowship is open to full-time graduate students at any academic institution in Louisiana and Texas who are engaged in coastal and marine research relevant to regional ocean, coastal, and estuarine acidification. In addition to supporting the student’s academic expenses, the fellowship will provide additional professional development opportunities throughout its duration, focusing on science communication, management application, outreach, and other Sea Grant and OAP activities and mission priorities.

Proposals are due before 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, April 17, 2020. For more information go to

Postdoctoral Researcher in Marine Ecology

Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences

Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences is seeking a postdoctoral marine ecologist interested in applying research on determining the phytoremediation potential by farmed macroalgae species. Our aim is to identify the conditions under which co-cultivation of blue mussels and farmed kelp is mutually beneficial and can mitigate stresses from coastal acidification. This position is initially funded for 1 year and will offer opportunities for multi-institution and transdisciplinary collaboration, pursuit of independent funding, and training in molecular-based approaches to determine fate of kelp detritus if desired.

Please submit a cover letter and CV using Bigelow's online application portal. Screening of candidates will begin February 24, 2020 with expectation candidate will be available in April of 2020.

New NOAA, partner buoy in American Samoa opens window into a changing ocean

New NOAA, partner buoy in American Samoa opens window into a changing ocean

NOAA Research

NOAA and partners have launched a new buoy in Fagatele Bay within NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa to measure the amount of carbon dioxide in the waters around a vibrant tropical coral reef ecosystem.

“This new monitoring effort in a remote area of the Pacific Ocean will not only advance our understanding of changing ocean chemistry in this valuable and vibrant coral ecosystem but will also help us communicate these changes to diverse stakeholders in the Pacific Islands and across the United States,” said Derek Manzello, coral ecologist with NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory.

Announcing 5th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World

To be held in Lima, Peru on September 7-10, 2020

The SOLAS-IMBER Working Group on Ocean Acidification (SIOA) is pleased to announce that the 5th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World will be held in Lima, Peru on 7-10 September 2020. The lead organizers are Drs. Wilmer Carbajal (Pedro Ruiz Gallo National University, Peru) and Michelle Graco (Institute of the Sea of Peru, IMARPE) and colleagues, based on their successful bid that was submitted to the SIOA. The previous symposia in this series were held in Paris in 2004, Monaco in 2008, Monterey in 2012, and Hobart in 2016, each proving to be essential for the international, multidisciplinary community of researchers studying ocean acidification. The same is expected for this 5th symposium, the first to be held in South America.
 
Please save the dates! More detailed information will soon be available from the organizers.
