The Lennon lab (https://microbes.bio.indiana.edu/) seeks a motivated and curious postdoc to work on GEMS: Genomics and Eco-Evolution of Multi-Scale Symbiosis, which is a newly announced NSF Biological Integration Institute (https://symbiosis.illinois.edu) to investigate plant-soil-microbe interactions using integrative approaches from molecular biology, ecology, evolution, theory, genomics, and computation.
In addition to expertise in these disciplines and questions, qualified applicants will have background or drive to learn about population-level barcoding, microbiology, experimental evolution, and the analysis of high throughput sequence data. The postdoc will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with researchers from Indiana University, University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana, University of Chicago, and University of Carolina Greensboro.
The position is available for 12 months with expected renewal in subsequent years based on satisfactory performance.
By the start of appointment, a Ph.D. in Microbiology, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Computational Biology or related field is required.
