Position descriptions available below and on the UW job site (positions
9465, 9480, 9466) at http://bit.ly/2Ikqrfo

Post Doctoral Research Associate in Microbiology and Microbial Ecology
(position 9465): The Ward research group at the University of Wyoming
(http://www.naomiwardlab.com/) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in
microbiology and microbial ecology. Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in
a relevant discipline, and experience in successful cultivation of diverse
bacterial taxa from environmental samples. Additional preferred
qualifications include expertise in genomic, proteomic, or metabolomic
approaches to microbial ecology, as well as fieldwork experience.  

Post Doctoral Research Associate in Plant-Microbe Interactions (position
9480): The Weinig lab at the University of Wyoming
(http://www.uwyo.edu/botany/people/faculty/cynthia-weinig.html)
is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to collaborate on research studying 1)
the effects of host plant genetic pathways on microbial distributions and 2)
the consequences of microbes to host plant performance. Minimum requirements
include a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline as well as demonstrated ability to
work as an independent and innovative researcher, experience conducting
plant or soil microbial ecology experiments, expertise in bioinformatics of
biomarker gene sequencing, and history of peer-reviewed publication. More
specific preferred qualifications include proficiency in environmental DNA
extraction, amplicon preparation, and field experience. 

Postdoctoral research associate in Microbial Ecology (position 9466): The
van Diepen Soil Microbial Ecology lab
(https://sites.google.com/site/lindavdiepen/home) at the University of
Wyoming is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in microbial
ecology and physiology, biogeochemistry, and microbial genomics. Minimum
requirements include a PhD in a relevant discipline, proficiency in
bioinformatics, and R programming or other statistical software. Additional
preferred qualifications include experience with microbial culturing
techniques, environmental metagenomics and transcriptomics analysis, field
work, and method development.

This search is part of a cluster hire of postdoctoral research associates,
supported by a new 5-year, $20 million NSF EPSCoR RII Track-1 grant to the
University.  In this project we will study microbial life and its ecological
consequences; additional details can be found at
http://www.uwyo.edu/epscor/microbial-ecology.
