Opportunity: Postdoctoral Position in Metagenomics @ The University of Utah -- Salt Lake City, UT (US)
Submitted by William Brazelton; posted on Wednesday, June 05, 2013
RESPONSIBILITIES:
A postdoctoral researcher with interests in microbial ecology and bioinformatics is wanted for a project investigating the biogeography and evolution of rock-hosted microbial communities in William Brazelton's laboratory at the University of Utah: [link]

The project will involve assembly and analysis of large metagenomic datasets as one aspect of an interdisciplinary, collaborative effort to explore the microbial ecology of deep-sea hydrothermal vents and other "extreme" environments.

REQUIREMENTS:
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in a related field, and experience with Perl, Python, or a similar programming language is required. Experience with bioinformatic tools and genome assembly is strongly preferred. Willingness to comply with open data and open software policies is also desirable. Computational work will occupy the bulk of the successful candidate's time, but there is potential for wet lab work and field work as the project progresses.

HOW TO APPLY:
To apply, please send a CV and a statement of research interests to wbrazelton[at]gmail.com. Informal, preliminary inquires to the same address are also welcome. Include also contact information for three references, from whom letters of recommendation will be requested after initial screening of applications. Please do not send letters of recommendation until they are requested.

Applications will be reviewed beginning 1 July, and the successful applicant could begin employment as early as August 2013 and preferably no later than October 2013 (negotiable).
