About the Project
PhD 2 will focus on profiling of all algal samples (from experimental treatments and native populations) including their eco-physiological properties, biochemical and genetic analyses. In addition, they will perform laboratory tests of seaweed derived hydrogels.
You are applying for a highly competitive 4-year fully funded PhD project.
You must have a full, clean driving license, be able to work independently, be hard working and solution-oriented and willing to participate fully within a dynamic research team. The successful candidate will hold an Honours Degree (2.1 or higher) in a cognate discipline (e.g. Zoology, Botany, Environmental Science, Marine Biology). An MSc or equivalent research experience would be an advantage. Other highly desirable skills include previous experience of field-based skills in aquatic ecosystems for PhD 1 and molecular techniques for PhD 2, a good knowledge of R, and a demonstrated ability to communicate research findings.
Send preliminary applications to: Dr O’Connor ([email protected] ). Please place ‘SFI Seaweed PhD 1’ or ‘SFI Seaweed PhD 2’ in the subject line of the email.
Attach a single PDF Document that contains the following:
• A cover letter: Your letter should clearly set out your suitability and motivation for this PhD with reference to your past relevant experience and achievements.
• A CV that includes your relevant experience, undergraduate results, postgraduate results (if applicable), any relevant publications and contact information for 2 academic referees.
Successful Phase 1 candidates will proceed to Interview. It is expected that that interviews will take place in August. The successful candidate will then be invited to submit a full application to Trinity College Dublin
