Note to prospective students:
The MADL is a dynamic lab and research currently underway spans from ecology of infectious diseases and ecophysiology to molecular genetics and genomics. There are often openings for different types of positions ranging from post-doctoral positions to high school internships. We expect hiring 2 graduate students in fall 2019 to work on shellfish physiology and genomics. We encourage you to carefully review the information available on this website before contacting our faculty to ensure that your are aware of the diversity of our projects and to help you identify an area of common interest.
Postdoctoral Position open:
The MADL currently has an opening for a postdoctoral position in marine genomics. The incumbent will be expected to contribute to ongoing and projected research on physiological and adaptive responses of marine invertebrates to pathological and environmental stress. Ongoing research uses a wide range of high-throughput technologies (RNASeq, RADSeq, bsRADSeq, proteomics, etc.) to characterize molecular processes and features associated with shellfish (clams, oysters, mussels) resilience to ocean acidification (and other environmental stressors) and resistance to infectious diseases. Other ongoing research includes the use of high-throughput transcriptomic methods to unravel molecular mechanisms underlying food uptake and selection in bivalves.
