Postdoctoral Position in Biogeochemistry of marine algae
Country of employment
The Geology and Ecology Units at the University of Oviedo, in Oviedo, Northwest Spain, invite applications for a Postdoctoral Associate to conduct research on carbon acquisition strategies of marine algae, as part of a larger EC-funded project assessing precedents of algal adaptation to atmospheric CO2 levels in the geological record. The position is a 3 year appointment. The research will be jointly conducted between the marine ecology unit in biological sciences and the geochemistry unit in the geological science department; these groups have a strong marine ecology program, including one of the longest monthly time series of phytoplankton and nutrient monitoring (in the Bay of Biscay), and strong expertise in low temperature geochemistry. A part time laboratory technician will be available to assist in culture maintenance.
The successful candidate must hold a PhD in oceanography or related biological sciences at the time of appointment, and have several years experience in the controlled laboratory culture of marine algae such as coccolithophorids or diatoms and characterization of their growth rates and metabolism. The position, available 1 December 2009, offers competitive salary, 1 month vacation, and free health care for the candidate and his/her family in the [public] health care system. The position is open to candidates of all nationalities; hire of a candidate from non-EU country may entail a 1-2 month delay in start date pending approval of work permit. The Department is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
Oviedo is a small city of 200,000 with historic pedestrian only city center and classic cultural offerings (opera, orchestra). The location is ideal for those interested in active outdoor lifestyle, only 30 km from the coast (beaches, surfing) and 45 km from the Cantabrian mountains (hiking/backpacking, cycling, rockclimbing).
To apply, please send a current CV and brief description of your experience and research interests to Heather Stoll (firstname.lastname@example.org).
