    Submitted by Nikki Bilenky; posted on Monday, August 28, 2017

    BACKGROUND

    A POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW position is currently open in Dr. Claire Fraser's laboratory at the Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS). The IGS at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine (UMSOM) is an interdisciplinary, multi-departmental team of collaborative investigators with a broad research program related to the genomics of infectious disease agents, human microbial metagenomics, human genomics, and bioinformatics. The impact of the members of IGS on the field of genomics has been substantial, with more than 500 publications during the past 15 years that have been cited more than 30,000 times.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    We are looking for a post-doctoral fellow to participate in a project to study the impact of e-cigarettes on the oral microbiota. The post-doctoral fellow on this project will characterize the longitudinal structure and function of the gut microbiota in e-cigarette users compared to control subjects and identify associations between clinical outcomes and changes in the microbiota. The post-doctoral fellow will also have the opportunity to be involved in other laboratory projects on the microbiota as time permits.

    The successful candidate will benefit from a community of interactive research labs, bioinformatics programmers, and a variety of sequencing, and computational resources available at the Institute for Genome Sciences as well as a wide range of basic and translational research within the University of Maryland, School of Medicine.

    REQUIREMENTS

    We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a PhD in the life sciences, demonstrated experience in genomics or bioinformatics, excellent communication skills, both oral and written, and enthusiasm for scientific collaborations.

    HOW TO APPLY

    To apply, please send a CV, detailing your list of publications, a cover letter describing your experience and statement of research interests (1-2 pages), and contact information for two references to IGS-jobs[at]som.umaryland.edu
