We are seeking four (4) PhD or MSc students to work on various projects related to crop microbiomes within a dynamic team comprising over 15 researchers led by Dr. Philippe Constant and Dr. Étienne Yergeau, at the Institut Armand-Frappier located a stone's throw away from the fantastic city of Montréal. These projects will use a multidisciplinary approach targeting plants and associated microorganisms to yield real-life solutions to farmers.
Research in the area of Rhizosphere/ Soil Microbiology and Molecular Ecology, Soil Metagenomics and Transcriptomics, Bioinformatic analyses.
Assistant Professor Position in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management with a 75% research, 25% teaching appointment.
The University of Waterloo invites applications for full-time tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank in the area of Geomicrobiology.
A post-doctoral position is available to explore microbial interactions with dissolved organic matter in the Western Sargasso Sea.
The Dekas Geomicrobiology Laboratory at Stanford University seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to lead a project on the physiological and ecological characterization of microbial candidate phyla. Next-generation sequencing has revealed a wealth of highly-divergent, widely-distributed microorganisms whose metabolic capabilities and ecologic function remain largely unknown. This project will explore the metabolic potential and activity of several of these groups using metagenomic, microscopic, and isotopic analyses.
PhD Opportunity in Applied Microbiology:
“Innovative and sustainable landfill leachate management using the anammox reaction”
The Baum Lab at the University of Victoria (British Columbia, Canada) seeks to recruit an outstanding, highly quantitative postdoctoral fellow (PDF) to lead research investigating how the relationships between corals and their microbial partners (bacteria, Symbiodinium) vary with local and global stressors, and the extent to which the microbiome influences coral resilience to thermal stress.
The Stream Biofilm and Ecosystem Research Laboratory at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, https://epfl.ch/), Switzerland, recruits two postdocs to study the effect of climate change on the structure and function of the microbiome in high-alpine streams.
The successful candidate will examine the microbial ecology of “soil health” challenges that affect almond production in California.
The Metcalf lab at CSU is seeking a microbiome bioinformatics postdoctoral scientist. The scientist will analyze multi-omics microbial data sets, including but not limited to: amplicon sequencing data, shotgun metagenomics data, and metabolomics data. Min. reqs.: Ph.D. in bioinformatics, ecology, microbiology or similar field. Proficient in coding languages (Python preferred). Demonstrated knowledge of microbiome science.
