The California Academy of Sciences is seeking to hire two postdoctoral
positions researching coral reef biology and conservation. Each two-year
position will be supported through the Academy's new Coral Reef Initiative
The candidates will be supervised by Drs. Rebecca Albright and Luiz Rocha
and will work closely with CRI project scientists (Dr. Terry Gosliner, Bart
Shepherd, amongst others) within the Institute of Biodiversity Science and
Sustainability <http://www.calacademy.org/scientists> and Steinhart Aquarium
<http://www.calacademy.org/exhibits/steinhart-aquarium> with generous
support for laboratory and fieldwork. The positions will focus on:
(Position 1) establishing a coral reproductive model at Steinhart Aquarium
(in conjunction with aquarium staff and global partners); investigate
carbonate chemistry dynamics and reef metabolism at various field sites;
(Position 2) coral reef genomics and bioinformatics. There is additional
flexibility to propose research projects that complement the California
Academy of Science's current initiatives
Public outreach through in person and online interactions will be
encouraged. Applicants with expertise in any area of coral reef biology and
conservation will be given full consideration. However, preference will
likely be given to candidates with experience in the following areas: field
expertise, coral reproduction, larval biology, seawater carbonate
chemistry, ocean warming and acidification, bioinformatics, genomics.
