I would be most appreciative if you could send this out to the listserv.
*Graduate Research **Opportunity** in Marine Calcification and Global
The Ries Laboratory (http://nuweb2.neu.edu/rieslab/) in the Department of
Marine and Environmental Sciences at Northeastern University seeks a
graduate student interested in conducting federally funded research on the
relationship between global ocean-climate change and marine calcification,
to begin fall 2014. Research will include field investigations of modern
(e.g., coral reefs) and/or ancient (e.g., limestones) carbonate systems
coupled with laboratory calcification experiments. This opportunity affords
access to state-of-the-art analytical equipment, including LA-ICPMS for
trace element analysis, XRD for mineralogical characterization, isotope
ratio mass spectrometry for δ34S, δ13C, δ11B and δ18O, and SEM with
EDS/EBSD for micro-imaging and elemental/mineralogical mapping. In addition
to completing coursework in their chosen field, the selected graduate
student will receive in-depth training in carbonate geochemistry, carbonate
sedimentology, biomineralization, global ocean-climate change, and
paleoceanography, which will directly support his/her research objectives.
The graduate student will be based at Northeastern University’s Marine
Science Center (http://www.northeastern.edu/marinescience/), located on the
shores of the Massachusetts Bay on the picturesque Nahant peninsula (8
miles north of downtown Boston). The renovated MSC features a
state-of-the-art flow through seawater facility, direct access to classic New
England rocky shore intertidal study sites, an in-house SCUBA program, and
small-craft research vessels. Highly motivated and creative individuals
with strong writing and analytical skills are encouraged to apply.
Interested individuals should apply to Northeastern’s Graduate Program in
Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology (http://www.northeastern.edu/mes/)
Applications are due *December 1, 2013*. Please direct specific inquiries
to Prof. Justin Ries at j.ries at neu.edu.
