Job Description / Duties
In the course of global change, environmental stress on marine organisms will increase. As one of the effects, shifts in the interaction between potential hosts and native or invasive pathogens/parasites are expected. Enhanced prevalence of infections may amplify climate change stress.
The research focus in this position should, thus, be the investigation of stress-driven changes in the interaction between pathogens or parasites and their (potential) benthic host organisms.
The school aims at bringing together graduate students, early career scientists, and experts in ocean and marine ecology modelling. It will consist of daily morning sessions organized around key topical lectures focusing on fundamentals and applications, followed by daily afternoon sessions devoted to practical training. These practical sessions will be the backbone of the school, with hands-on training in the use of ocean and ecological models.
The Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences Program at Princeton University seeks an outstanding Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior researcher to engage in an ocean modeling project focused on the global ocean carbon cycle.
Earlier this month, an educational resource about the ocean was launched for schools, youth groups and other curious young learners, entitled the Youth Guide to the Ocean.
This informative guide was jointly developed by PML and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on behalf of the Youth and United Nations Global Alliance (YUNGA).
