OPPORTUNITIES

UNDERGRADUATE FINAL YEAR PROJECT 

Seeking HKU undergraduate students to join the lab to conduct final year project research on sea-level change of the China coast. The FYP students will receive training in one or more of the following area:

  • Sample collection in mangrove and intertidal environments.

  • Sample preparation and physical (e.g. grain-size analysis), biological (e.g. foraminifera, diatoms) and geochemical (e.g. stable isotopes) laboratory techniques.

  • Data analysis, interpretation and archiving of sea-level data.

PHD STUDENTSHIPS AND POSTDOCS

Seeking highly motivated PhD students and/or postdocs interested in research in one or more of the following areas to join the lab:

  • Producing new, high-resolution records of relative sea-level change from tropical, sub-tropical, and temperature locations using microfossil (e.g., foraminifera, diatoms, pollen), geochemical (e.g., stable carbon isotopes), or novel (e.g., DNA signatures) proxies

  • Developing sea-level databases spanning the Last Glacial Maximum to present to reveal spatio-temporal patterns and mechanisms of past relative sea-level change

  • Deciphering mechanisms of paleoenvironmental change and carbon storage in coastal settings

Applicants with a strong undergraduate background are encouraged to apply through the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme: https://cerg1.ugc.edu.hk/hkpfs/index.html
