PhD or MS opportunity in stable isotope biogeochemistry

Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi

Coastal and Marine System Science

A PhD or MS opportunity is available with the Felix Research Group in the Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi.  The group’s research focuses on using stable isotope techniques to investigate the sources, transport, and fate of reactive nitrogen and volatile organic compounds in the environment.  The group’s research across various earth systems provides a unique research experience that balances fieldwork with sample processing, sample analysis and development of novel stable isotope analysis techniques.

The potential student’s research would focus on using stable isotope techniques to investigate nitrogen (e.g. ammonium, nitrate, dissolved organic nitrogen (DON)) loading into Texas coastal waters (e.g. bays, estuaries, Gulf of Mexico).  The project will emphasize investigation of DON sources and dynamics in coastal waters.  The project’s overall objective is to aid harmful algal bloom (HAB) mitigation strategies by understanding how DON and other nutrients are sustaining HABs in coastal waters. Potential students should be highly self-motivated and have a strong background in chemistry with extensive laboratory experience.  PhD applicants should have an MS or a very strong undergraduate research record.  The project relies heavily on stable isotope techniques so experience with these techniques is desired but not necessary.  PhD and MS students would matriculate through the Coastal and Marine System Science <http://gradschool.tamucc.edu/degrees/science/coastal_marine_sys_science.html> graduate program (http://gradschool.tamucc.edu/degrees/science/coastal_marine_sys_science.html).  Interested candidates should contact Dr. J. David Felix (joseph.felix at tamucc.edu) and provide a short statement of interest and CV.  More information about the Felix Research Group and potential research can be found here felixlab.tamucc.edu.  Information about the TAMU-CC isotope core facility can be found here http://icl.tamucc.edu/.
