Sorry folks, the previous email didn't carry requisite attachment.
here's the ad:
An opportunity for post-doctoral research on coral reefs of the Red Sea
is available at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The successful
applicant will join a team of biologists, chemists and oceanographers in
an integrated study of natural and anthropogenic impacts on the tissue
health, nutritional status, and rates of skeletal growth/carbonate
production by the dominant reef building species in the Red Sea region.
The position is available now for a maximum duration of 2.5 years. It is
based in Woods Hole but requires several field expeditions; the first is
scheduled for May 2008.
A PhD in a relevant discipline, an excellent publication record and an
AAUS or equivalent dive certification are required. Extensive field work
experience and knowledge of Indo-Pacific coral species is preferred.
Field work will include surveys, testing and deployment of
multi-parameter underwater logging instruments, use of underwater
fluorometer diving PAM, and operation of submersible core-drill.
Laboratory tasks will include analyses of tissue (lipid stores,
chlorophyll and some histology) and quantification of skeletal growth
parameters using CT scanning techniques. Experience in many or all of
these areas is desirable.
To apply, email curriculum vitae, including a list of publications,
statement of research interests, and the names and addresses of four
references to the following address: seayou at whoi.edu
