Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) postdoctoral fellowships

The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) offers postdoctoral fellowships that provide an excellent opportunity for successful applicants to interact with a strong, diverse group of researchers throughout the Smithsonian Institution. Fellowship information can be found at The deadline is January 15. The fellowships are highly competitive and the application process involves developing a proposal with a SERC Senior or Research Scientist.

I am particularly interested in applicants focusing on either of two projects:

1)Effects of diel-cycling hypoxia and pH on estuarine fish, shellfish and food webs. This project is based in Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware Coastal Bays and includes laboratory experiments, field studies and modeling components. We’ve developed a laboratory system that is capable of simulating daily cycles of dissolved oxygen and pH in up to 5 simultaneous treatments. Strong collaborations with management agencies facilitate field experiments and sampling.

2)Mangrove ponds as a model system to study acidification. This work takes advantage of the Smithsonian’s network of field stations in Belize and Panama and could be expanded to FL as well.

If you are interested in either of these topics, please contact Denise Breitburg (breitburgd(at)
