The ideal candidate will be experienced in culture-based techniques AND have familiarity with recent advances in genetic, proteomic, and metabolite analyses.  Individuals with advanced degrees in Chemical, Environmental or Bioprocess Engineering, or Environmental Microbiology are encouraged to apply.  Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled.  The position is available as early as December 2019, for a duration of one year, with opportunity for a second and third year depending on satisfactory progress.  To apply, send an email to and with a one-page cover letter, a CV, a list of at three references, and copies of two relevant publications combined into one PDF file.
