an ability and interest to work across biological and chemical disciplines, experience with metal biogeochemical research involving trace-metal clean techniques and marine microorganisms, and knowledge of ICP-MS and electrochemical methods.  The preferred candidate will have published (or submitted) their dissertation chapters in peer-reviewed journals.

Work will be based at the new Bigelow Laboratory campus in East Boothbay, Maine (www.bigelow.org) but will require participation in a research cruise in the first year, as well as
