The Duhamel Lab for Marine Microbiology and Biogeochemistry at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University seeks a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to join the laboratory to participate in a research project on marine dissolved organic phosphorus and the role of compound-specific phosphorus hydrolase transformations in the marine phosphorus cycle. This work will include physiological and chemical measurements. The position will entail laboratory experiments in phytoplankton cultures, plus sampling and experiments onboard oceanographic research vessels, as well as data analysis (including bioinformatics tools) and scientific publications writing.
This position is located in Rockland County, NY at the Lamont Campus of The Earth Institute at Columbia University. The lab is located near the NYC metro area, offering many opportunities for interactions within Columbia University departments, and other area Universities. This project is in close collaboration with the Diaz Lab at Skidaway Institute of Oceanography (SkIO), University of Georgia, and may entail trips to SkIO.
