Zooplankton Postdoc

A new Zooplankton post-doc position was announced recently at VIMS in Dr. Deborah Steinberg's lab. It is for a NSF and Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation funded project that lasts 2 years with annual renewals beginning this summer.

The project is investigating the impacts of climate change on the zooplankton community structure and biogeochemical cycling in the west Antarctic Peninsula. They need someone who can work well on cruises with expertise in zooplankton ecology and basic knowledge of zooplankton taxonomy. You'll get to do two cruises to the western Antarctic Peninsula, one in 2010 and one in 2011 – austral summer for both cruises of course – as well as work with an autonomous glider for acoustic measurement of zooplankton distribution.

The initial application reviews will begin on April 30th. Full details are available in the original announcement.
