Subject: Associate Research Scientist (Project) in Ocean Biogeochemistry

Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University is recruiting for an Associate Research Scientist (Project) in the area of ocean biogeochemistry. The position will be mainly associated with two field projects on biological productivity and nutrient cycling, one in the Caribbean Sea and one in the Bering Sea.
