Job: PhD Fellowship – Marine Zooplankton Ecology

Title PhD Fellowship - Marine Zooplankton Ecology
Agency, Location Louisiana
Categories Student
Job # 12352
Salary $18,000/yr
End Date 2017-10-01

Research focused on understanding how zooplankton populations respond to climate-related and anthropogenic perturbations, with an emphasis on jellyfish. Specifically, how variability in biophysical features operating at a range of spatio-temporal scales affect zooplankton abundance, distribution, and mediate predator-prey interactions.


US citizenship (or permanent residency) or degree from a US institution; a 3.5 undergraduate GPA with a better average in the major field or 3.7 graduate GPA if graduate hours have been pursued; and a GRE combined verbal and quantitative score of 308. The student will be supported by a teaching assistantship for up to 2 years ($17,000/yr) following the fellowship. A Master’s degree in a related field (e.g., marine biology, oceanography) is preferred, but well-qualified recent undergraduates will also be considered.

To apply, please email Dr. Robinson a single PDF file containing your CV, a cover letter with your research interests and experience, and contact information for three professional references.
