Internship opportunity: ​​​”Climate change and ocean acidification,” California Ocean Science Trust

Host: The California Ocean Science Trust (OST) is a non-profit organization that works across the boundaries between government, science and communities to support California’s goal of maintaining a healthy, resilient, and productive ocean for the benefit of current and future generations. OST promotes the use of independent science to inform policy and decisions. Our projects span the gamut of topics, from ocean acidification and sea-level rise, to advancing science in fisheries management, to monitoring marine protected areas.

Location: Oakland (map)

Internship Dates: June 4 – August 17, 2018; start and end dates are flexible with regard to student’s academic commitments and project schedule.

Stipend: $5,000

Internship opportunity: “Analysis of ocean acidification and co-stressor effects on fish early life processes,” National Center for Coastal Ocean Science, New Jersey, USA

This project evaluates the potential effects of ocean acidification and other environmental co-stressors on fish populations. The effects on fish of an increased level of ocean acidification –another consequence of C02 emissions – are largely unknown and represent a new and exciting research front. We are using a combination of field, laboratory, and experimental data to address this topic with respect to resource fish species of the northeastern USA. The student will be directly involved in laboratory experiments that address components of this larger research effort. Among other activities in 2018, we will be conducting experiments on the direct and interactive effects of C02 (acidity), dissolved oxygen (DO), and thermal regimes on embryos and larvae of fish, and assessing the adaptive potential of the fish species to these stressors.

Associate Research Scientist, GOA-ON support – IAEA Environment Laboratories (NAEL), Monaco

Closing date: 3 December 2017. Position open for US citizens.

Note: This position is part of an IOC-UNESCO/IAEA- collaboration to support GOA-ON.

Organizational Setting

The Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications implements the IAEA’s Major Programme 2, “Nuclear Techniques for Development and Environmental Protection”. This Major Programme comprises individual programmes on food and agriculture, human health, water resources, environment and radiation technologies. These programmes are supported by laboratories in Seibersdorf, Monaco and Vienna. The Major Programme’s objective is to enhance the capacity of Member States to meet basic human needs and to assess and manage the marine and terrestrial environments through the use of nuclear and isotopic techniques in sustainable development programmes. The IAEA Environment Laboratories consists of four laboratories, three of which are located in Monaco and one in Seibersdorf. The Division implements the IAEA Environment Programme and operates in a complex matrix environment with inputs from many parts of the organization, such as the Department of Technical Cooperation for the implementation of projects, and collaborates with other Departments.
