What: PhD Assistantship – Shelf Sediment-Water Exchange Dynamics
Organization: Florida State University

We seek a PhD student to work on a project addressing sediment-water exchange processes in the shelf environment. Focal areas of this research are the spatial and temporal dynamics of oxygen, nutrient and carbon fluxes determined through parallel deployments of eddy correlation instruments and benthic chambers. The results will be used for improving local and global carbon cycle estimates and for the development of guidelines for achieving representative flux estimates in shelf areas with different flow regimes and sediment characteristics. The ideal candidate would have a background in oceanography, a good understanding of marine geochemical and physical processes, and a strong interest in coastal processes and field work. The project is a collaborative effort by Markus Huettel at Florida State University and Peter Berg at the University of Virginia. The position is offered in Huettel’s group in Tallahassee. Preferred starting date is as soon as possible. The candidate will receive an annual stipend of $20,000 and tuition support. Interested students should contact Markus Huettel ( and send a recent CV and contact information for three references. FSU is an Equal Opportunity/Access/Affirmative Action Employer
