Categories Professional
Job # 13437
Start Date ASAP
Responsibilities
We are seeking a leader for a project investigating microbial/microplankton community dynamicsassociated with fresh and marine water environments and their potential for ecological invasiveness. As UV ballast water treatment is an important approach to managing aquatic invasive species, this project will target the genomics and transcriptomics of UV DNA damage and repair mechanisms. The PDF will work closely with our Industry partner (Trojan UV). Our Institute is a recognized leader in aquatic invasive species research, informing government policies and international shipping agreements.
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
