Rutgers University Shellfish Research Laboratory and the New Jersey Aquaculture Innovation Center have laboratory and field-oriented positions in areas of shellfish biology including
aquaculture, genetics, physiology, and parasitology. Position start dates are from February through May 2015. Click here to download additional information.
HSRL summer interns, Joseph Luney and Lauren Huey attended the Northeast Aquaculture Conference and Exposition (NACE) meeting in Portland Maine in January to present a poster about their summer work at the Haskin Lab. Both are Rutgers undergraduates supported by the NSF REU program to work with us on our NSF-funded Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Disease (EEID) project. Their study suggests that in nature, meront stages of the oyster pathogen Perkinsus marinus (Dermo) can remain viable in seawater, and presumably infective, shortly after dispersal from hosts, but viability and infectivity fall quickly over broader temporal and spatial scales.
