Subject: [ISOGEOCHEM] Ph.D. / M.S. Opportunity in Stable Isotope Ecology

> Sorry for re/cross posting. The deadline to apply for funding via the
Louisiana Board of Regents Fellowships is upcoming. Interested PhD
applicants are encouraged to contact me ASAP to be eligible for this
funding. MS student funding is more flexible.
> A great opportunity for an isotope minded student to combine hands on lab
work in bulk and compound-specific stable isotope analysis with field work
in remote and adventurous settings including Antarctica. Thanks for
spreading the word.

> Seeking highly motivated graduate students (M.S. or Ph.D.) to begin
graduate research in a dynamic, new lab at Louisiana State University's
Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS) in fall 2014. Active
areas of research focus on using stable isotopes to provide insights into
the ecology of seabirds and marine mammals and examining the impacts of
invasive species on island ecosystems. Desired qualifications include: 1)
B.S./M.S. degree in biology, marine science, chemistry, or relevant
discipline, 2) laboratory experience (i.e., sample preparation, organic
extractions, gas chromatography, bulk and compound-specific stable isotope
ratio mass spectrometry), and 3) experience working on ecological studies
in remote field settings.
> Interested candidates should fill out a pre-application form for the
graduate program in the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences at
Louisiana State University (
www.oceanography.lsu.edu/index.php/academics/pre-application-form/). Please
indicate on this form that you would like to work with Dr. Polito. In
addition, please email a single pdf containing your CV, a cover letter with
your potential research interests, a brief summary of accomplishments
(educational background, GPA, GRE scores), and contact information for at
least three professional references to Dr. Michael Polito (mpolito at whoi.edu).
Qualified candidates will be contacted directly and encouraged to submit a
full application to the graduate program in DOCS.
> MS graduate position will include 2 years of tuition and stipend (about
$20K/year). Outstanding PhD candidates (Combined GRE scores > 310 or 1250,
GPA > 3.5, excellent references, and/or strong publication record) who are
U.S. citizens can compete for Board of Regents Fellowships (about
$28K/year+tuition) if full applications are completed ASAP and received by
the Graduate School and DOCS prior to January 15, 2014. For more
information about potential research projects and DOCS see
