PhD opportunity at the ICM-CSIC Barcelona

The 3-year project (January 2017-December 2019) entitled: ““Anthropogenic-Induced Metabolic COST in competing marine species”” is seeking for a highly motivated student willing to do a PhD at the Marine Sciences Institute (ICM) from the CSIC in Barcelona.

The candidate will be involved in experimental manipulation of marine organisms (clams; fishes) in different environmental stress conditions as well as conducting in vitro exposures. The experiments will imply mostly physiological and biochemical measures after exposing the clams/fishes to physical (temperature and pH) and chemical (pharmaceutical drugs) exposure.

They offer a one-year contract with the possibility of renewal depending on the competence of the candidate. They seek for a candidate holding a Master’s degree in Biology, Biochemistry, Aquaculture or similar with competitive marks to qualify for grant applications.
