Graduate student assistantship at the University of Alaska Fairbanks


A graduate student assistantship is available in the laboratory of Dr. Eric Collins at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (http://www.reric.org). Contact Dr. Collins (student-app@reric.org) to discuss the position in more detail. Please include a brief description of your research interests, experience, and academic preparations. Competitive applicants will have a strong academic background in the natural sciences, prior field or research experience, and a demonstrated interest in microbial ecology and evolution in cold environments. Applications for the graduate program in the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (http://www.sfos.uaf.edu/prospective/graduate) will be reviewed beginning March 1.

** Seasonal Synergy between Bacterial Osmoprotection and Algal Production in Sea Ice **

Funding is available for an M.S. student to develop a thesis project investigating the evolutionary and biogeochemical roles of compatible solutes in sea ice microbial communities. The student will engage with a team of researchers at the University of Washington and the Greenland Climate Research Centre on the broader question of how biophysical processes (e.g. sea ice, primary production) influence the entry and fate of elements, greenhouse gases and contaminants in Arctic marine ecosystems. This is an inter-disciplinary project that includes experts on sea ice, polar oceanography, biogeochemistry, microbial ecology, and genomics. The candidate will have the opportunity to engage with students and faculty across these disciplines. Field work for the project is based primarily in Nuuk, Greenland, with the potential for additional field work conducted on the R/V Sikuliaq (http://www.sfos.uaf.edu/sikuliaq). Prior experience with bioinformatics or computer programming are highly desirable, as is experience with NMR, mass spectrometry, or other methods of molecular identification. The research project is sponsored by National Science Foundation Award #1203262 (http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1203262).

Please see the following websites for more information about UAF (http://www.uaf.edu), the Institute of Marine Sciences (http://www.ims.uaf.edu), the UAF Graduate School (http://www.uaf.edu/gradsch), and Dr. Collins’ research (http://www.sfos.uaf.edu/people/profile.php?uid=3198). The University of Alaska Fairbanks is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. UAF is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and educational institution.
