Assistant Professor Department of Ocean Science and Engineering
Dr. Xinxin Li received her Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography from Texas A&M University in 2013. Her research interest is marine organic biogeochemistry. She studies the fate of organic carbon from estuaries, nearshore to trenches, and their interactions with eutrophication, hypoxia, and global climate change, using the tools of stable and radiocarbon isotopes, organic biomarkers, and microbial community dynamics and processes. She has published 16 peer-reviewed papers in journals of Marine Chemistry, JGR-Biogeosciences, Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta etc., for over 470 citations by Aug, 2020 (Google Scholar).

Postdoc positions in Chemical Oceanography Department of Ocean Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology
The Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) has several immediate postdoc opening in Chemical Oceanography (https://ocean.sustc.edu.cn/). 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:
- highly motivated, hard-working and open to exploring new areas of science.
- willing to work independently and efficiently, with good work ethics and teamwork spirit.
- willing to work closely with members of collaborative labs on joint projects.
￥280,000 with benefits.
The annual salary can up to ~￥300,000, if the candidate gets the performance-based Presidential Award of SUSTech.
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.
