Graduate research assistantship in ocean acidification impacts on bivalves

M.S. or Ph.D. position is available for a highly motivated student to study mechanisms of bivalve responses to ocean acidification. The student will work as part of a collaborative team of researchers at Oregon State University to investigate the dynamics of shell growth for various bivalve species in response to changes in carbonate chemistry. Applicants should have strong writing and analytical skills, broad interests in biogeochemical ecology and oceanography, and an M.S. if applying for a Ph.D. Any prior research experience in biomineralization or ocean acidification is extremely valuable. The applicant should also have prerequisite course work for applying to the College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences, at Oregon State University. Several years of support are available contingent upon positive annual evaluations and successful advancement towards degree.

The College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University boasts a diverse faculty in oceanographic, atmospheric, and earth sciences. The successful applicant will be enrolled in the newly restructured, highly interdisciplinary Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences Program.
