We have just been awarded a 3-year project (January 2017-December 2019) entitled:“Anthropogenic-Induced Metabolic COST in competing marine species””, The project will be carried out at the Marine Sciences Institute (ICM) from the CSIC in Barcelona. The project seeks collaboration at the PhD or post-doc level from a motivated student with interests in experimental manipulation of marine organisms (clams; fishes) in different environmental stress conditions.
While there is no budget for a project fellowship, the candidate may be able to secure funding through competitive awards, such as the “Marie-Curie” mobility programme or national fellowships. The project will provide the funds required for the experimental part, as well as lab facilities to conduct the experiments. The experiments will imply mostly physiological and biochemical measures after exposing the clams/fishes to physical (temperature and pH) and chemical (pharmaceutical drugs) exposure.
In addition to the experimental part with clams and fishes, the project will involve some field trips to the Ebro Delta
