The Roberts Lab of Ecosystem Ecology and Biogeochemistry at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) is seeking a research
assistant in Wetland Biogeochemistry to participate in a series of field/laboratory and manipulative experiments studying the effects of the Macondo Oil Spill on coastal marsh ecosystems. The assistant will join a large, multi-institution team of researchers in the Coastal Waters Consortium, a BP GoMRI-funded project studying the impacts of the oil spill and future spills on salt marshes and coastal environments. The position is associated with a collaborative subproject on wetland biogeochemistry and microbial ecology led by Drs. Brian Roberts (LUMCON), Anne Giblin (Marine Biological Laboratory), and Anne Bernhard (Connecticut College). The objectives of the project are to 1) improve our understanding of temporal and spatial patterns in marsh biogeochemical process rates, associated microbial communities, and factors regulating these communities and rates; and 2) evaluate the impact of and recovery from oil exposure on marsh biogeochemical processes and associated microbial communities. The research assistant will support the field and laboratory analytical activities designed to accomplish these objectives. The position will be based at LUMCON and will require extensive field and laboratory work. This is a unique opportunity to collaborate with top scientists from around the United States in a large, interdisciplinary research project of great importance to the US Gulf Coast and other ecosystems impacted by oil-related activities.
