Job: Research Assistant Position in Wetland Biogeochemistry at LUMCON
Monday, 25 August 2014 00:00

A Research Assistant in Wetland Biogeochemistry at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) is sought to participate in a series of field and laboratory experiments studying the effects of the Macondo Oil Spill on coastal marsh ecosystems. The assistant will join a large, multi- institution team of researchers in the Coastal Waters Consortium (cwc.lumcon.edu), a BP GoMRI-funded project studying the impacts of the oil spill and future spills on salt marshes and coastal environments. The position is associated with a collaborative subproject on wetland biogeochemistry and microbial ecology between Drs. Brian Roberts (LUMCON), Anne Giblin (Marine Biological Laboratory), and Anne Bernhard (Connecticut College). The objectives of the project are to improve our understanding of temporal and spatial patterns in marsh biogeochemical process rates, associated microbial communities, and factors regulating rates and to evaluate the impact of oil exposure on marsh biogeochemical processes and associated microbial communities. The research assistant will support the field and laboratory analytical activities designed to accomplish these objectives. The position will be based at LUMCON and will require extensive field and laboratory work.  This is a unique opportunity to collaborate with top scientists from around the United States in a large, interdisciplinary research project of great importance to the US Gulf Coast and other ecosystems impacted by oil-related activities.

Oil companies fracking into drinking water sources, new research shows

Energy companies are fracking for oil and gas at far shallower depths than widely believed, sometimes through underground sources of drinking water, according to research released Tuesday by Stanford University scientists. Though researchers cautioned their study of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, employed at two Wyoming geological formations showed no direct evidence of water-supply contamination, their work is certain to roil the public health debate over the risks of the controversial oil and gas production process.
