IMCS is looking for Postdoctoral Fellows
The Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University supports Postdoctoral Associates in the areas of biological, chemical, geological and physical oceanography. These fellowships are one year renewable appointments. Prospective candidates are expected to pursue creative research avenues within existing research programs and faculty expertise. Applications can be submitted for consideration on an ongoing basis. However, new openings are not anticipated until early in 2014. Active solicitation of applications will commence in late 2013.
Any applications should include a statement of research interests that clearly coordinate with IMCS faculty research programs, a curriculum vitae, and names of 3 references. They should be emailed to Dr. Richard A. Lutz (Director, Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences):
(please include “Postdoc” in the subject line).
