This position is located at the Auburn University Shellfish Lab in Dauphin Island, Alabama. The individual selected for the position will be expected to help identify relevant questions, design and implement field and laboratory experiments to test those questions, conduct statistical analyses of the results, publish manuscripts in scientific journals, present research findings at professional, stakeholder, and agency meetings, and prepare proposals for additional extramural funding of the research program. This is a benefit eligible, non-tenure track position. The appointment is for an initial period of one year with a possibility of continuance up to a maximum of four years depending on performance and funding availability.
