The Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences (www.bigelow.org) is seeking a
qualified and highly motivated individual for a postdoctoral research
scientist position in the laboratory of Dr. Beth Orcutt. The research will
be related to the study of the marine deep biosphere, focusing on the use
of subseafloor observatories to study microbial processes, building off
international ocean drilling program field sites on the Juan de Fuca Ridge
flank, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge Flank and/or the Atlantis Massif.

Highly successful candidates would have experience with environmental
science and/or microbiology or biogeochemistry, with working knowledge of
molecular biology techniques (such as DNA extraction, amplification, and
sequencing or bioinformatics), microscopy, or stable isotope techniques
considered as highly desirable. Applicants must have at least a Ph.D in
marine sciences, oceanography, environmental microbiology or similar field
with a proven publication record. Experience with project management or
fieldwork also desired. Proficiency in computer programs for word
processing and data entry are a must, as well as good written and oral
communication skills.

Research will be conducted primarily at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean
Sciences in East Boothbay, Maine, but opportunities may be available for
fieldwork. The position is offered for two years. The position has an
expected start date of September 2016, but this may be negotiated. Salary
will be commensurate with prior experience.
