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.

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.

Undergraduate Research Internship Opportunities

Mook Sea Farm & SEANET

Two ocean acidification-related undergraduate research internship opportunities are avaiable this summer at Mook Sea Farm in Walpole, ME supported by SEANET.  These opportunities are open to undergraduate students from or attending university in Maine.

The Aquaculture in changing waters: Impacts of ocean acidification on juvenile oysters opportunity is directly related to ocean acidification and the aquaculture industry.  The second internship, Environmental influence on larval bivalve settlement success, will consider the effects of several environmental variables, including pCO2, pH, and saturation state, on larval bivalve settlement in a field study.

Applications will be reviewed beginning February 18. 2019. Please direct questions to me, Meredith White, meredith.megan.white@gmail.com.
