Post-Doctoral Position Coral Reef Research

Central Caribbean Marine Institute



Coral Reef Research Post-Doctoral Position

A
Post-Doctoral position in tropical marine ecology at the Central Caribbean
Marine Institute is available at our Little Cayman Research Centre facility in
the Cayman Islands.  The primary goal of
the research is to assess and more fully understand factors that influence
coral reef resilience. Consistent with that goal, we expect that the successful
candidate will focus his or her research efforts on a relevant area of marine
science. The research, however, should be of broad ecological interest.  We are particularly interested in attracting
innovative, early career scientists with demonstrated field and laboratory
experience and strong publication potential.

This position will suit a
well-rounded research scientist who is comfortable in the field and in the
laboratory and who has strong analytical skills as well as good personal
skills. We seek a scientist who will: (1) make an original
contribution in the understanding of mechanisms underlying coral reef
resilience, (2) integrate the work into a longer-term research strategy for the
Central Caribbean Marine Institute, and (3) make substantial and effective use
of Little Cayman Research Centre facilities.  The ability to work independently and in teams
on interdisciplinary problems is essential. 
The successful applicant will work closely with Dr. Carrie Manfrino and
Dr. Tom Frazer. 



Applicants must have a PhD in marine
biology, ecology, oceanography or related discipline.



The appointment is a full-time one year
position with the possibility of extending to two years, contingent on
available funding and successful evaluation of performance.
