We have opportunities available for students wishing to pursue a Master's degree in Marine Sciences in the Biogeochemistry Lab (www.mortazavilab.org). The lab is located at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab on the Gulf coast (www.disl.org). The successful applicant will work on projects related to spatial and temporal patterns in nitrogen cycling, the role of benthic fauna on nitrogen cycling, or controls on trace gas fluxes in marshes in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. Applicants should have a BS in chemistry, biology, marine science, or a related field, and background and interest in biogeochemistry. Depending on availability and qualifications, students are eligible for assistantships covering (1) a tuition waiver, (2) an annual stipend, and (3) health insurance.
