Postdoctoral Position for Multi-Omic Microbiome Study Uncovering Interkingdom Interactions in Soil Hyphosphere Pathobiomes
The Antony-Babu lab at Texas A&M University is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our team and contribute to an exciting interdisciplinary research project focused on soil microbial ecology, plant microbiome interactions, and plant pathology. As a member of our team, you will work towards defining the pathobiome and dysbiotic-microbiome of Fusarium wilt in cotton. Using multi-omics tools, you will study fungal-bacterial interactions in the hyphosphere, contributing to the central goal of the research. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in microbiology and microbial ecology experimentation.
The position is based in the Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology on the College Station campus in Texas, with travel to field sites in Western Texas and other cotton-growing regions. This is a unique opportunity for collaboration between multidisciplinary teams, as the research is a collaborative effort between two universities and a USDA-ARS lab. Join us and contribute to cutting-edge research while collaborating with a team of experts in the field.
Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Sanjay Antony-Babu (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line “Fusarium pathobiomes postdoc - query”. We can only consider applications that are posted online through the link provided in the last line of this document. Emailed applications cannot be considered.
Our group at Swansea University is seeking to appoint a Research Officer / Postdoctoral Researcher to work on the biodiscovery of novel plastic-degrading enzymes. The postdoctoral project is part of the multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, European project “Biocatalytic membranes for micro/nano plastic degradation within wastewater effluents” (BMRex) funded by the European Innovation Council and Innovate UK.
In your project, you will explore plastic-associated microbial communities and identify novel plastic-degrading enzymes to contribute to the overall aim of BMRex. Your role will involve collection of microbial communities from environmental microplastic, extraction and quality control of environmental DNA and RNA, sequence-based analysis of metagenomes and metatranscriptomes of microbial communities, and bioinformatic analysis for enzyme candidates using e.g. python or R. You will write-up the work for submission to top-tier research journals and help to communicate our work to the public.
This position offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of a breakthrough technology for plastic degradation within BMRex, while also providing excellent prospects for professional and personal development. You will work with state-of-the-art technologies including lab automation and collaborate with leading experts in the field, building a strong international network that will enhance your career prospects. Additionally, you will have access to ongoing training opportunities that will allow you to enhance your technical skills and personal development. Our supportive team culture fosters a healthy work-life balance, providing you with the necessary tools to balance your professional obligations with your personal life and well-being.
The successful candidate must possess a PhD Degree in Microbiology, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Computational Biology or equivalent. They will have experience in molecular laboratory work (e.g. DNA and RNA extraction) and bioinformatic analysis. They will have experience in conducting independent research of publishable quality, and ideally are able to program e.g. in python or R.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to Dr Eva Sonnenschein email@example.com
