Postdoctoral scholar position on the Phylogenomics of Coral Bacterial Endosymbionts

2-year position in the Dept. of Microbiology at Oregon State University in Corvallis Oregon under the mentorship of Rebecca Vega Thurber. 

This postdoctoral scholar project will focus on the assembly and phylogenomic analyses of coral-associated bacterial endosymbionts. As such, this position will require skills in several biocomputing and bioinformatics areas including: assembly of genomes from host-based metagenomic samples, comparative phylogenomics, and the biogeography/population genetics of bacteria and their hosts.
