I am looking for an outstanding student interested in studying the interactive effects of ocean acidification and sea surface temperature rise on the physiology, behavior, and sensory ecology of larval fish. The project has a strong experimental component and is mainly laboratory-based. The project is in collaboration with other experts in the field providing a broad mentoring experience to the successful candidate.
