Graduate Opportunity in Marine Algal Ecological Physiology
International Fellowships » Funds for Graduates » Educational Fellowships
A Ph.D. student fellowship (3 years funding) in cyanobacterial photosynthesis physiology and protein and gene expression is available at the College of Marine and Earth Studies at the University of Delaware starting in the spring.
This is a collaborative project between the University of Delaware, Old Dominion University, and the University of Southern California.
The project will investigate the impact of currently projected increases in global CO2 and temperature on the biogeochemistry and physiological ecology of several nitrogen fixing marine cyanobacteria, including Trichodesmium spp., in the laboratory as well as the field.
Applicants should have an interest in algal or plant physiology and biochemistry (molecular biology skills are a plus).
The applicants should also possess strong writing and communication skills, and a strong work ethic.
Review of applications will begin immediately.
Submit (preferably by e-mail) a short letter of interest that includes a description of work experience and career goals, curriculum vitae, unofficial copies of transcripts, GRE scores, and the names and contact information (phone and e-mail address) of 3 academic references to:
Dr. Mark Warner,
