Postdoc position in coral physiology in the Barott lab at the University of Pennsylvania

We are currently seeking a postdoctoral researcher for a recently funded NSF project to study the influence of environmental pH exposure and thermal sensitivity on coral physiology.
The goal of this project is to explore how exposure of corals to different seawater pH dynamics on the reef interacts with coral bleaching
susceptibility to affect coral resilience to climate change stress from the organismal to the cellular scale. The postdoc will be involved in all
aspects of this research, which will include a combination of field work in Hawaii, mesocosm experiments, organismal physiology and confocal
microscopy. The successful candidate will be expected to disseminate project results through public outreach, presentation at scientific
conferences, and journal publications. This postdoctoral position is for one year starting in winter/spring 2020 (start date flexible), with
possibility for renewal.
Applicants must hold a PhD in Biology, Physiology, or a related field prior to the start date and have a record of peer-reviewed publications.
Experience with coral or invertebrate physiology, marine fieldwork, cell biology, and ocean acidification are highly desired. Interested candidates
should send a single .pdf document including the following: 1) a cover letter, 2) curriculum vitae (CV), 3) one-page statement of research
interests, 4) copy of PhD transcript, and 5) the names and contact information of 3 references (one must be PhD advisor) to: Application review will begin February 1, 2020.
