3 PhD-students

The project "*Consequences of Phosphorus Reduction for the Dynamic Transfer
of Organic Matter between Primary Producers and Primary Consumers*" is part
of the Sea and Coast Programme of the Netherlands Organisation for
Scientific Research (NWO).

In this project, we will investigate how phosphate availability regulates
the productivity and composition of functional groups of phytoplankton and
microphytobenthos in the western and central Wadden Sea. The implications of
phosphate related species selection on the food web structure and the
carrying capacity of the Wadden Sea will be addressed by defining the
transfer of microalgal carbon to various development stages of selected
benthic primary consumers. New views on the functioning of the lower food
web are to be conceptualized in a biogeochemical model and provide essential
information on the direction and magnitude of change in Wadden Sea carrying
capacity as a result of management policies and global change.

*PhD-student 1* (vacancy number CEME-MM-08428) will study the primary
production and the group specific production by using a combination of
techniques making use of variable fluorescence and stable isotope labelling
of biomarkers and will also investigate the factors limiting algae growth.
Primary location: NIOO-CEME, Yerseke.

*PhD-student 2* (vacancy number NIOZ-08429) will investigate the production
of benthic microalgae (MPB) using oxygen microsensors and will investigate
the effect of MPB on sediment water exchange. These processes will be used
by the PhD-student to develop a biogeochemical model describing the
processes. Primary location: NIOZ, Texel.

*PhD-student 3* (vacancy number NIOZ-08430) will investigate the transfer of
primary organic carbon to various larval stages of marine bivalves as
representatives of primary consumers. This transfer will be studied for
various compositions of food (algae), and the consequences of P limitation
will be evaluated in terms of growth and development rates of the larvae.
Primary location: NIOZ, Texel.

*The appointment will be initially for 1 year, which will be extended to 4
year provided that the applicant has proven to be well suited for the job.
The project will start in January 2009.

*Salary: *
The gross salary starts at approx. € 2.000,- per month in the 1st year, and
will gradually increase to a maximum of approx. € 2.600,- per month in the
4th year. Conditions are based on the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch
Universities (NIOO) or the Collective Employment Agreement for Research
Institutes (NIOZ).

The way to AMINEF in Gedung Balai Pustaka

American Indonesian Exchange Foundation
Balai Pustaka Building, 6th. Floor
Jl. Gunung Sahari Raya No. 4
Jakarta 10720, Indonesia

1. The buses which goes to Senen Bus Station all of them pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. Especially which route is through Pasar Baru .

2. Bus Transjakarta, from Blok M you have to change the bus 2-3 times.
Way 1 : from Blok M change the bus in Dukuh Atas bus stop to the bus towards Pulogadung, then take a bus in Pramuka bus stop towards Ancol, this bus pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. The closest bus stop (Budi Utomo) is about 800 meters from Gedung Balai .
Way 2 : From Blok M take the bus in the Harmoni Bus Stop, the bus towards Pulogadung, get down in Senen Bus Stop and walk about 800 meters, or from this bus stop take the bus towards Ancol and get down as mentioned in way 1. About the distance, this two bus stops is about the same. (It is better if you take ojek or bajaj from this bus stop to Gedung Balai Pustaka)

3. If you take taxi with old tariff (TL=Tarif Lama) from blok M with no traffic jam is about Rp. 30.000,00.

4. From Blok M use bus Patas AC 76. Gedung Balai Pustaka is in the right side, after you pass through Depag, and say to conductor "Balai Pustaka"

5. Use a busway from Blok M towards Kota, get down in Sawah Besar bus stop. From here take a Mikrolet M12 towards Senen. After cross road Wahidin and before senen get down and cross the street.
