The Correa Lab (http://www.owlnet.rice.edu/~ac53/ ) has funding to support a Ph.D. student to work on a project assessing the impacts of freshwater runoff from Hurricane Harvey on coral reef microbial communities in the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary (NW Gulf of Mexico). The scope of this project includes observational and experimental fieldwork, tank-based studies, molecular lab work, and bioinformatic analyses. Preferred applicants may have experience in many/all of these areas, as well as a research diving certification or extensive diving experience.
Applications from underrepresented groups are encouraged. Interested candidates should email Dr. Adrienne Correa with a brief description of their qualifications and interest in our lab’s research, as well as their CV and GRE scores. Information on the Rice EEB Graduate Program is available here: http://biosciences.rice.edu/EEB_GradAdmissions.aspx
The application deadline for the Rice EEB graduate program is December 31st, 2017.
