The overarching goal of the research is to use innovative ‘omics approaches to address challenges facing the development and expansion of sustainable shellfish aquaculture. The primary research focus is the assessment of ocean acidification (OA) sensitivity of the native littleneck clam versus the non-native, but commercially important, Manila clam in adult and larval stages and the identification of molecular mechanisms underlying parental carryover effects by via transcriptional (gene expression) profiling of gametes. The incumbent will also support research aimed at the development of new technologies to achieve sterility in cultured shellfish. This is collaborative research between researchers at the University of Washington and NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center. The postdoc will be responsible for conducting controlled OA experiments and comparing growth, survival and gene expression profiling in gametes in clams. The postdoc will also support experiments to optimize germ cell elimination methodology for shellfish. This research will be performed primarily at NOAA NWFSC Kenneth K. Chew Center for Shellfish Research and Restoration located at the Manchester Research Station in Port Orchard, Washington.
