Assistant Professor Department of Ocean Science and Engineering

Dr. Li Xinxin received her Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography from Texas A&M University in 2013. She applied organic biomarkers to study biogeochemical cycling of organic carbon in different marine ecosystems from estuaries,open ocean to trenches, and their relationship with marine eutrophication, hypoxia and global climate change. She is a member of American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). She has 15 peer-reviewed papers published inwell-known academic journals in marine science, such as Marine Chemistry, JGR-Biogeosciences, Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta etc.

Personal Profile


The biogeochemical processes of organic carbon in marine sediments and its environmental significance;

The organic carbon cycling processes and mechanisms driven by microbes in marine trenches;

The research of basic theoretical and applied marine organic biogeochemistry and marine environmental sciences in the field of ocean acidification, hypoxia and eutrophication.


Chemical oceanography (for undergraduates);

Introduction to Marine Ecosystems (for both undergraduates and graduates)

Postdoc positions in Chemical Oceanography Department of Ocean Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology


Job Description

The Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) has several immediate postdoc opening in Chemical Oceanography ( We seek highly motivated postdoctoral researchers to join Department of Ocean Science and Engineering in the city of Shenzhen (next to Hong Kong), Guangdong Province, China.

Two positions are open in Chemical Oceanography. Candidates will apply state-of-the-art biogeochemical methods (such as organic biomarkers, stable and radioisotopes, compound specific isotope analyses etc.) to study dynamics and processes of marine organic carbon biogeochemistry; the fate of organic carbon from estuaries, nearshore to trenches, and their interactions with eutrophication, hypoxia, and global climate change.


The postdoc will be:

  1. highly motivated, hard-working and open to exploring new areas of science.
  2. willing to work independently and efficiently, with good work ethics and teamwork spirit.
  3. willing to work closely with members of collaborative labs on joint projects.


Annual Salary

¥280,000 with benefits.

The annual salary can up to ~¥300,000, if the candidate gets the performance-based Presidential Award of SUSTech.

To Apply

Those interested should send their CV including list of publications, a letter of motivation with contact information of three referees to

Due date: until positions are filled.
