Postdoctoral Research Associate in Aquatic Biogeochemistry, University of Florida

The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Florida has an opening for a full-time postdoctoral associate. The position requires a PhD in Oceanography, Marine Science, Aquatic Chemistry, Marine Organic Geochemistry, or similar field obtained within the last 3 years and expertise in the application of isotopic and chemical biomarker techniques, with specific emphasis on the use of GC-MS and/or HPLC-MS.

The successful applicant will in part, work on an exciting new NSF-proposal that will determine if the source of chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in the open ocean can be attributed to plankton. CDOM is a small but important fraction of the oceanic DOM pool that interacts with solar radiation, thus affecting photochemical and biological processes in the ocean. This project will utilize a powerful, new technique of measuring base-extractable POM (BEPOM) absorbance and fluorescence, discrete chemical measurements of probable precursors to planktonic CDOM (tryptophan, Trp, and ubiquinone, Ubq), and enzymatic assays, thereby providing new insights into the origin and production of planktonic CDOM and its transformation by bacteria.  Highly motivated candidates with strong analytical skills chemical biomarker and isotopic techniques are encouraged to apply and to incorporate their interests into the project. Demonstrated experience in the GC-MS and HPLC-MS analyses will be emphasized. A demonstrated record of publishing in peer-reviewed journals is required.

The post-doc will work closely and under the direction of Dr. Thomas S. Bianchi. The position is for 24 months, beginning as soon as it can be filled with the possibility of renewal pending funding.

Applications should be submitted by email as a single pdf to Dr. Thomas S. Bianchi (tbianchi at ufl.edu<http://www.imber.info/index.php/fre/tbianchi@ufl.edu>) and include: CV, publication list, statement of research interests, one-page summary of Ph.D. thesis, minimum of three letters of recommendation and statement of immigration status of non-citizens. Review of applications will begin immediatley and the position will remain open until filled.

The University of Florida is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.design : www.alex-design.fr<http://www.alex-design.fr/>
