Postdoctoral Research Associate – Marine Chemistry at The University of Southern Mississippi, USA

The USM Division of Marine Science seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to participate in projects related to both submarine groundwater discharge as well as open ocean dissolved trace element distributions. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in oceanography or related field, with emphasis on geochemical processes. Candidates must have demonstrable experience doing geochemical research in the field as well experience in geochemical analysis. They must possess demonstrable experience in conducting science with peer-reviewed publications. Experience doing radionuclide and/or trace element research is preferred.

The position is funded by grants to Dr. Alan Shiller; work in our lab involves a variety of projects relating to studies of submarine groundwater discharge in the northern Gulf of Mexico, GEOTRACES studies of dissolved trace elements in the Pacific Ocean, and testing of new ocean chemical sensors.

Note that the position is located at the NASA Stennis Space Center: the successful candidate will be required to pass a NASA background security check to work at Stennis as well as a USM employment background check.
