ACCRETE Internship Opportunity

NOAA/AOML and University of Miami's Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (CIMAS)

ACCRETE (Acidification, Climate, and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team) at NOAA/AOML and theUniversity of Miami’s Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric
Sciences (CIMAS) is accepting applications for a one-year internship position, to be offered annually to a highly motivated recent college graduate interested in gaining experience in the fields of coral reef ecology and ocean acidification research.

ACCRETE is actively researching how climate change and ocean acidification will be, and already are affecting the construction (coral growth, calcification) and breakdown (bioerosion, dissolution) of coral reef ecosystems, as well as the associated ramifications these processes have for ecosystem function. The successful applicant will work with a diverse team of scientists, postdocs, and students at NOAA and UM laboratories in Miami, Florida.

During the year, the intern will gain extensive hands-on experience with laboratory and field research including, but not limited to, experiments
conducted in the CIMAS Experimental Reef Labanalysis of carbonate chemistry for ocean acidification research, scuba diving and fieldwork in the Florida Keys, involvement in the National Coral Reef Monitoring PlanCT scanning of coral and reef frameworks, as well as 3D scanning and printing for scientific instrument development.

The position will be supervised by Dr. Ian Enochs and at the conclusion of the year-long internship, the successful applicant will be expected to present a talk on their work. Current AAUS authorization is required for participation in scuba diving operations. The position will be paid hourly, totaling roughly $30k over the year.

Please send a CV and letter of interest to ian.enochs@noaa.gov, with “ACCRETE internship application” in the subject line. Applications must be received by June 9th.

OAP Deputy Director contributes to effort to identify research need to understand impacts and explore adaptation in Arctic

April 28th, 2018

OAR OAP Deputy Director participated in the AMAP/EU-PolarNet Stakeholder Workshop on Research Needs on Climate-Related Effects on the Arctic Cryosphere and Adaptation Options. Participants discussed research issues in relation to both the need for further scientific understanding of the impacts of the rapidly changing climate on the Arctic cryosphere and the need for investigation of options for adaptation to these changes by Arctic communities and residents.

Marine Scientist Position with focus on Ocean Acidification

State of Washington Department of Ecology

The Environmental Assessment Program (EAP) program within the Department of Ecology is looking to fill a Marine Scientist (Natural Resource Scientist 2) position. Applications are due April 24, 2018.

This position is located at our Headquarters Building in Lacey, WA but conducts work statewide. This position is responsible for conducting marine water quality monitoring, with a focus on ocean acidification. Responsibilities include implementing the addition of ocean acidification-relevant parameters to Ecology's marine waters monitoring program in Puget Sound. This position is also responsible for oceanographic sampling gear preparation and use, instrument calibration (CTD and other electronic sensors), laboratory sample analyses, data analysis, and report writing. The data collected is used to determine the status and trends of marine water quality in context to ocean acidification in Washington state.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Chemical Oceanography

University of Delaware

The University of Delaware (UD) College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment is seeking applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position in chemical oceanography and metrology. The successful candidate will work on a NOAA funded project to aid in the development of a reference material for ocean pH by establishing traceability of pH indicator dyes to the International System of Units (SI). The scholar will make use of state-of-the-art analytical and experimental facilities at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Candidates must have a PhD in either chemical oceanography, analytical chemistry, or a closely related field. Demonstrated skills with spectrophotometry, potentiometry, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and/or physical chemistry are preferred. The position will be located at the NIST facility in Gaithersburg, MD, but the appointment will be made through the University of Delaware. The postdoc will also attend field test cruises with the UD group. The appointment will be for one year, with continuation pending funding and progress.

Please contact Wei-Jun Cai (wcai@udel.edu) and Regina Easley (regina.easley@nist.gov) for additional information.
