The Graduate School of Excellence ‘JSMC' invites applications for a PhD Student Position (Ref.No. JSMC-44/2009) on the topic Mass spectrometry based metabolic profiling / metabolomics to unravel the chemical interactions of viruses and host algae in plankton
The project will deal with the interactions of marine algal viruses and phytoplankton, thereby addressing the functioning of very important marine food webs and biogeochemical cycling. The underlying regulative processes will be investigated by applying a metabolomic investigation of phytoplankton cells. Bioassays in the lab will be accompanied by field studies to search for the role of the identified metabolites in algal / virus interactions.

The Sustainability Science Program at Harvard University's Center for International Development invites applications for resident fellowships in sustainability science for the University's academic year beginning in September 2010. The fellowship competition is open to advanced doctoral and post-doctoral students, and to mid-career professionals engaged in research or practice to facilitate the design, implementation, and evaluation of effective interventions that promote sustainable development. Applicants should describe how their work would contribute to "sustainability science," the emerging field of use-inspired research seeking understanding of the interactions between human and environmental systems as well as the application of such knowledge to sustainability challenges relating to advancing development of agriculture, habitation, energy and materials, health and water while conserving the earth's life support systems.
