Research Assistant- Tropical Carbonate Sediment Production (POST OPEN TO ALL, BUT SUBJECT TO WORK PERMIT IF NON EU CITIZEN)

Department of Environmental and Geographical Sciences, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK 

Fixed Term Contract - 10 months full-time from Date of Appointment (ideally 1st November 2009)
Salary: Fixed Point - £20,226 pro rata (Point 17, Grade 5)

Applications are invited for a Research Assistant to work on a NERC funded project which will examine the production of
carbonates by tropical marine fish species and assess the potential contributions made by this novel source of marine carbonate to
shallow water tropical carbonate sedimentary environments. Specifically, the successful applicant will assist with the collection
and subsequent analysis of carbonate sediment samples collected from environments around Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. The
project is jointly co-ordinated by researchers from Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Exeter, although the
post holder will be based at MMU.

You will be expected to contribute to, and assist with, both field and lab-based sampling of carbonate sediments. This will
include a period of approximately 3 weeks overseas on fieldwork.

You should have a minimum of a good BSc (Hons) degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field of Earth Science, Physical Geography,
Environmental Science or Marine Ecology, and a good knowledge of marine and coastal sedimentology and/or tropical marine ecology.
