The candidate will explore the effects of management on soil processes such as greenhouse gas fluxes, C storage and biodiversity preservation
Bigelow Laboratory seeks to recruit a postdoctoral scientist to investigate biological interactions and mechanisms that trigger the initiation and termination of harmful algal blooms (HABs) in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM). Proliferation of toxic algae can be devastating to sea life and coastal economies. This work will untangle the complex relationships between viruses, bacteria, and the Karenia brevis dinoflagellate along Florida’s coast. The project is funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and is part of a large interdisciplinary effort that includes biological, chemical, and physical oceanographers and modelers from six institutions. The postdoctoral scientist will be mentored by Dr. Joaquín Martínez Martínez. The position is offered for four years.
The postdoctoral scientist will assume a leading role in the first systematic study of the impact of viruses on the dynamics and physiology of K. brevis and their associated bacteria. In the laboratory, they will be involved in culturing phytoplankton and bacteria isolates from the GoM, isolating viruses that infect them, and applying advanced omic techniques to understand the direct or indirect role viruses play in promoting or suppressing HABs. They will also participate in annual research cruises in the GoM and collaborative experiments in Florida and Abu Dhabi with other team members. There will be additional opportunities for contributing to side projects on aquatic virus ecology at the Martínez Martínez Laboratory.
We are seeking a postdoctoral scientist to join the Microbial Genomics group at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, working on evolution of the phage proteome.
Faculty members will receive generous startup, annual core funding and support from core facilities. The review of applications will start on 15 June 2021.
Research at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) is making increased use of high-throughput sequencing methods, including metagenomics, comparative genomics, and transcriptomic research. Also other data-rich research is performed such as metabolomics and R-based simulation modeling. NIOO-KNAW has a bioinformatics unit to support this research. As a bioinformatician, you will give support to researchers in each of the four NIOO-KNAW research departments. Projects are very diverse, ranging from bacteria and fungi to plants, insects, birds and genetic material recovered directly from soil or other environmental samples.
The postdoctoral researcher will focus on genome-centric analyses of metagenomic and metatranscriptomic data obtained from enrichment cultures and freshwater environments. Focus will be on sulfur and nitrogen cycling microorganisms.
The Green lab at SUNY-ESF (Syracuse, NY) is seeking a PhD student to lead a new NSF-funded project using ‘omics’ methods and fluorescent microscopy (confocal CARD-FISH) to determine the major microbial players in mercury cycling in two local meromictic lakes. This information will be combined with extensive biogeochemistry work through a collaboration with Syracuse University.

Postdoctoral scholar position working on cultivation and physiology of nitrifying microorganisms
This is a prestigious 3-year postdoctoral fellowship that would allow postdoctoral researchers to pursue their own projects, under sponsorship of 1 or more faculty members at University of Texas Austin. The area description is: "the diversity of life and/or organisms in their natural environments". UT Austin has a dynamic and large bioscience community and state-of-the-art facilities and computational resources.
We are seeking a motivated PhD student to investigate the decomposition and partitioning dynamics of phytosiderophores in the plant-microbe-soil system. Research will involve stable isotope probing technologies (13C-PLFA, NanoSIMS) as well as molecular techniques (16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing, FISH) for identifying the key microbial players involved.
The position is funded by the project "PhytoTrace - Wanted: Micronutrients! Phytosiderophore-mediated acquisition strategies in grass crops" (ERC Starting Grant 801954) and will be based in the laboratory of Eva Oburger (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna) and Dagmar Woebken (Division of Microbial Ecology, University of Vienna).
