More Post doc opportunities! Together with the Rynearson labs at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography we are looking for another Postdoctoral Researcher focused on investigating both micro- and mesozooplankton grazing as part of the NASA EXPORTS program. For further information check out the current research and prospectives pages.

Sept 2017 – On the high seas

After a record setting mobilization in Woods Hole (10 people, < 10 hours) the crew (post-docs Franze & Morison), together with lab-alumnus Sean Anderson (now Harvey Lab , SKIO) set out for the third installment of the NAAMES cruise. I hear they hit bad weather and things are really rough…

The National Science Foundation core Biological Oceanography Program has funded a new study in the lab, where we will combine research efforts in the laboratory and coastal Rhode Island to identify the quantitative effects of temperature changes on plankton growth and feeding rates. Thrilling times in our lab.

We are honored and excited to join the NASA funded EXPORTS campaign. A large-scale field campaign that will provide critical information for quantifying the export and fate of upper ocean net primary production. Doesn’t get more exciting than that!

June 2017

We have opportunities for both Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows to join our lab. Potential research projects include investigating (i) plankton populations in the North Atlantic, (ii) temperature dependence in heterotrophic protists growth and grazing rates and (iii) effects of intra-specific variability on biodiversity. For further information check out the current research and prospectives pages.
