Organization: Ries Lab, Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center
Contact: Prof. Justin Ries
Duties: Conduct federally funded research on the impact of past and future ocean acidification and warming on the process of calcareous biomineralization. Research will include employing a multi-disciplinary approach (scanning electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, isotope geochemistry, microelectrode analysis, metatranscriptomics, proteomics, biomechanical analysis) to investigate the impact of past and future ocean acidification and warming on shell production, mineralogy, elemental chemistry, structure, function, and calcifying fluid chemistry.
How to apply: Interested individuals should apply to Northeastern’s Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences’ Ph.D. program in Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology.
Application deadline: December 15, 2016
