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.

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.

Application deadline:
Start date: TBD
Location: The Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) in Wageningen, NL
