Postdoctoral research opportunities in marine calcification – Ocean acidification and global ocean-climate change

The Ries Laboratory ( in the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill seeks a postdoctoral fellow interested in conducting NSF-funded research on the relationship between global ocean-climate change and marine calcification, to begin Fall 2011.

Research will include field investigations of modern (e.g., coral reefs) and/or ancient (e.g., limestones) carbonate systems coupled with laboratory calcification experiments. This opportunity affords access to state-of-the-art analytical equipment, including LA-ICPMS for trace element analysis, XRD for mineralogical characterization, isotope mass spectrometry for δ34S, δ13C, and δ18O, and SEM with microprobe for micro-imaging and elemental mapping. Highly motivated and creative individuals with strong analytical skills are encouraged to apply. Please send a letter of interest, your CV, contact information for 4 references, and reprints of at least 3 publications to Prof. Justin Ries at before January 1, 2011.
