In the Kim Lab,
we study the interactions and feedbacks between climate and marine microbial ecosystems over multiple scales.
We heavily utilize quantitative and computational modeling approaches in conjunction with observational time-series analysis. We develop numerical ecosystem and biogeochemical models and data-driven statistical models to gain an ecosystem scale understanding of the climate-microbial interactions. We utilize global marine ecosystem and biogeochemical models to seek regional- to global scale understanding of the climate-microbial interactions. Mostly, we have worked with the data and models for the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS) and the Palmer Antarctica Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program.
We aim to address the following research questions:
We are looking for students who have a background in Chemistry, Biology, Oceanography, or a closely related area. We are also looking for postdocs who can complement our research in microbial biogeochemistry by developing interdisciplinary collaborations.
Join our lab as students or postdocs! Questions about the positions should be directed to Heather (firstname.lastname@example.org).
