Dear Coral-listers,

I am seeking applications for a new postdoc (see below for the official announcement). Applicants are welcome to email me with any questions.


Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in the Baker Laboratory at The Swire Institute of Marine Science (SWIMS), to commence as soon as possible for two to three years, with the possibility of renewal.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. degree.  They should have a demonstrated publication record of question driven science in the field of coral-Symbiodinium eco-physiology, genetics, and biogeochemistry.  Their toolkit should be comprised of one or more of the following: qPCR, flow cytometry, stable isotope analysis, microscopy, coral husbandry, cell culture, quantitative modeling, and SCUBA certification.
The appointee will be based at SWIMS (http://www.swims.hku.hk<http://www.swims.hku.hk/>) located in the Cape d’Aguilar Marine Reserve on the southeast corner of Hong Kong Island.  He/She will combine field and wet-lab work at SWIMS and analytical power at the University's main campus under a newly formed research initiative with the Ocean Park Corporation.  The primary duties will include conducting experiments to better understand Symbiodinium population dynamics, nutrient assimilation, and competition under varied environmental conditions.
A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits.  Affordable accommodation at the laboratory residence can be arranged by the Institute.
Applicants should send a completed application form, together with an up-to-date C.V, a cover letter and contact information for at least two references by e-mail to dmbaker at hku.hk<mailto:dmbaker at hku.hk>.

The University thanks applicants for their interest, but advises that only candidates shortlisted for interview will be notified of the application result.
