Dear Coral-List,

The Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) at 
the University of Miami invites applications for a Research Associate I 
to work closely with scientists at RSMAS and NOAA’s Atlantic 
Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory’s Ocean Chemistry and 
Ecosystem Division (AOML/OCED) on the impacts of environmental change 
(thermal stress and ocean acidification) on coral reef ecosystems.

The successful candidate’s duties will include, but are not limited to 
the following: 1) Laboratory analysis and interpretation of carbonate 
chemistry including pH, total alkalinity, pCO2, and dissolved inorganic 
carbon, 2) Field work involving SCUBA diving in coral reef environments, 
3) Data QC and management for carbonate chemistry, environmental data, 
and coral reef ecological data, and 4) Maintaining experimental aquaria 
for lab studies on coral reef organisms.

Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree in marine science or a 
related field from an accredited university and some research experience 
gained during education/training or in employment in a research 
position. They must be highly motivated, organized, and have the ability 
to adapt to a dynamic lab environment. Strong analytical and laboratory 
skills are required, along with a proven track record of routinely 
conducting physically demanding field work. An AAUS SCUBA diving 
certification is required and experience with small boats is preferred. 
Preference will be given to candidates who possess a close familiarity 
with coral reef ecosystems, carbonate chemistry (analysis and 
interpretation of data), and ocean acidification. Proficiency with 
computers is preferred, including MS Excel, MS Access, ArcGIS, and image 
analysis software packages.

Apply online at: www.miami.edu/careers.  Curriculum Vitae, a letter of 
interest, and the contact information for 3 persons who can provide 
letters of recommendation are required.

For further information, candidates should contact Dr. Derek Manzello
