The Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn (SZN) invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher to work on the project “Spatial and temporal variability of gas fluxes and ratios in coastal marine ecosystems”.
A major focus of the research group is on quantifying biological productivity and nutrient transformations in marine systems, particularly in benthic associations between primary producers, invertebrates and microbes, using techniques ranging from dissolved gas measurements to mesocosm experiments and bottle incubations with stable isotope tracing.
Within this project, you will work to develop protocols and standard operating procedures (SOPs) aimed at the study of dissolved gases fluxes and their ratios (measured by membrane inlet mass spectrometry – MIMS) as a result of the metabolism of specific microbial associations, also in response to environmental stress, and the quantification of potential effects for coastal marine ecosystems.
Deadline: 9 December 2022
