Postdoctoral research associate will work on a newly-funded NSF Rules of Life project entitled “The Rules of Life were made to be broken - Connecting Physiology, Evolutionary Ecology, and Mathematics to Identify a Growth Rate Rule”.  The position is based at the University of Montana's Flathead Lake Biological Station. The position involves studies of the genomic, physiological, ecological, and evolutionary responses of Pseudomonas and Chlamydomonas in chemostat cultures. The overall goal is to establish the conditions under which a close coupling of growth rate, RNA allocation, and C:N:P stoichiometry occurs or does not occur and to examine the ecological consequences of that coupling/decoupling. Work will be supported by a full-time technician and done in collaboration with similar studies of Daphnia (at Oklahoma State University) and with mathematical modelers (at Arizona State University).  The postdoctoral scholars are expected to publish these findings in journals and work collaboratively with FLBS scientific staff and collaborators at other institutions. Submit applications online:
