The Reese Geomicrobiology Lab at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is seeking a M.S. or Ph.D. student in molecular microbial ecology and biogeochemistry to study 1) interactions between methanogenesis and methanotrophy in a mangrove wetland along the Texas coast; and/or 2) effects of microbial succession as a result of Hurricane Harvey.

These recently funded projects will combine field observations, laboratory manipulations, and molecular analysis. We have a unique opportunity along the Texas coast to study the effects of mangrove expansion on carbon cycling in a protected area. Results will be placed in the context of the benthic ecology and faunal distribution.

Potential students should be highly self-motivated and have a strong interest in molecular ecology, biogeochemistry, and/or bioinformatics. The position will be supported by a recently funded grant, but teaching assistantships are available. The student will have the option to matriculate through the Marine Biology program (http://sci.tamucc.edu/LSCI/MARB/) or the Coastal and Marine System Science program (http://sci.tamucc.edu/PENS/CMSS/).

The position is available for students to start as early as Spring 2018, or they may choose to begin in Summer or Fall 2018. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Brandi Kiel Reese (brandi.reese@tamucc.edu) and provide a brief statement of interest, CV, unofficial transcript, and unofficial GRE scores (if available). More information about the Reese Geomicrobiology Lab and potential research can be found at reeselab.tamucc.edu.
