Application for technician position in Sediment Ecology Lab at DISL
A full-time lab technician position is available at Dauphin Island Sea Lab to work with Dr. Kelly Dorgan on animal-sediment interactions. Research will focus on the impacts of infaunal organisms on the physical properties of sediments and will include laboratory and field experiments to study bioturbation and acoustic and geotechnical properties of sediments. The technician will be responsible for setting up and conducting laboratory experiments, developing and trouble-shooting methods, helping with field work, processing infauna and sediment samples, and maintaining equipment. The technician will also be responsible for general lab management, including purchasing supplies, doing paperwork, and organizing field and lab work. This position will also include some data analysis, and experience with Matlab, R, Arduino, ImageJ, or other computer programming languages would be useful but not required.  
 
I am ideally looking for a highly motivated recent B.S. graduate who is interested in gaining research experience before applying to graduate school. Applicants should have a BS in biology, marine science, or a related field, some previous research experience, and interest in marine invertebrates and/or sediment processes.
 
Dauphin Island Sea Lab is located on Dauphin Island, AL, a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, ~45 min drive from Mobile, AL. For more information, see www.disl.org
 
This position is for a year, with extension dependent on funding and job performance. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
