Effects of ocean and coastal acidification on stressor responses in
estuarine organisms and reef-building corals:
Research focuses on determining how changes in coastal water chemistry
from ocean acidification and nutrient enrichment influence stressor
responses in estuarine organisms and reef-building corals under
controlled laboratory conditions. The project will investigate the
interactive effects of projected high levels of pC02 and selected land-
based stressors on genomic, biochemical, cellular and organismal level
responses in selected species. The post-doc will develop and utilize
exposure and testing systems and various biological response endpoints
to determine sensitive species and life stages of estuarine
invertebrates, fish and corals. The post doc will investigate how
changes in carbonate chemistry, dissolved oxygen, and other water
quality parameters affect calcification and other genomic and cellular
responses to allow a mechanistic interpretation of species sensitivity
and to facilitate predictive model development.
Applications are due by July 29.
