I have a postdoc opening in my lab that could be an excellent opportunity for
members of this list. The project is extremely cool, and will incorporate
elements of ecology and systems biology. The position is open now, and I would
like to fill it ASAP.
Genomic basis of species diversity and ecosystem functioning
We seek a postdoctoral scholar to collaborate on a project funded by the U.S.
National Science Foundation to study the evolutionary basis of species
diversity and ecosystem functioning in freshwater green algae. The successful
candidate will take intellectual lead on the genomics portion of laboratory and
field experiments that will (1) determine how much genetic differentiation is
required for species to stably coexist, and (2) determine how mechanisms that
allow for coexistence also impact community-level processes such as primary
production. The candidate will also pursue his or her own research interests
within the broader context of the grant proposal.
The candidate will work in Dr. Charles Delwiche's lab at the University of
Maryland – College Park, and will collaborate with researchers in the labs of
Drs. Bradley Cardinale (an ecologist at the University of Michigan) and Todd
Oakley (a phylogeneticist at UC-Santa Barbara).
The position requires a Ph.D. in the biological sciences, bioinformatics, or a
related field. Experience with high-throughput sequencing, sequence analysis,
algal/plant biodiversity, or RNA biology are desirable.
This is a three-year position, with the initial appointment being for one year
and renewals contingent on successful progress in research. The starting salary
will be $ 42,000 with full benefits.
The University of Maryland is located in College Park, a suburb of the
Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area, and provides a vibrant cultural and
academic environment with easy access to a vast array of Federal research
The position is available immediately. To apply formally, send a curriculum
vitae, the names of 3 references, and a brief statement of how your research
goals fit with research on algal biodiversity, systematics, and evolutionary
biology to: aaalg...@gmail.com

There is still only you, listening to the music of the wind and lost in the
stagnant cries of the miseries lost in the eyes of others laughing at you. How
can someone so different be so much the same? - Liu Sola
