The Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory seeks a postdoctoral researcher in the field of microbial metabolism to work as part of a larger team on several related projects intended to better understand carbohydrate anabolism and catabolism in soil organisms and the environment. This research theme, supported by grants from the USDA, the Keck Foundation, and the Grantham Foundation, engages several units across campus, including the NREL, the Ecosystem Science and Sustainability department, the Materials and Molecular Analysis Center (part of the CSU Analytical Resources Core), the department of Chemistry, the WM Keck Metabolism Collective and others.
The primary goal of this position is to isolate and identify soil microorganisms capable of novel carbohydrate anabolism and catabolism and to understand how and why these microorganisms carry out these functions. To that end, the researcher will (1) use analytical platforms for understanding and characterizing the metabolic pathways by which rare carbohydrates are synthesized and consumed with the goal of (2) functionally characterizing these organisms, processes, enzymes, and genes.
These positions are initially for one year with the potential for a one- to two-year extension based on performance.
We are looking for a personality with an international reputation in current areas of aquatic microbiology.
Systems soil ecology with a synthetic microbial community
The Department of Microbiological Sciences at NDSU is seeking to fill a full-time bioinformatician position to support a new agribiome research initiative.
Recycling of organic waste can turn a fossil fuel based economy into a bio-based economy. The future in this domain targets the development of new technologies that use organic waste streams for gaining products with high added value. The main discipline to develop these technologies via biological means is microbial ecology, the field which studies the interactions among microorganisms. The biochemical conversion technologies require a social network of different microorganisms. It is postulated that a better understanding of the interactions among microorganisms and of their spatial and temporal structure in for instance biofilms, is key to develop functionally active and stable microbial communities that catalyze these bioconversions. The KU Leuven has a full time academic vacancy for a microbial ecologist to perform research on novel technologies that support the bio-based circular economy. The new professor has to use current state of the art and new methods to take up the challenge to understand the deeper ecology and functioning of microbial communities governing bioconversion processes of interest for circular economy in order to propose measures for improvement and control.
The International Society for Microbial Ecology (ISME) is seeking an experienced professional to manage and support the society.
The ISME Office is based at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) in Wageningen and supports ISME at all administrative and organizational levels.
ISME is a non-profit charity and serves the wider-community and seeks to help and promote microbial ecology in all aspects. It has become thé members association to join when you work in the field of microbial ecology. ISME is owner of two publications and organizes events (physical and virtual) with the main event being the ISME Symposium. Besides this ISME offers several funding possibilities.
The NIOO-KNAW is a top research institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), and focuses on fundamental and strategic research on individual organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems.
