    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Scholar -- Microbial Ecology and Plant-Microbe Interactions (#91288) @ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory -- Berkeley, CA (US)
    Submitted by Bill Cannan; posted on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

    Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's (LBNL, www.lbl.gov) Environmental Genomics & Systems Biology Division (biosciences.lbl.gov/divisions/egsb/) has an opening for a Postdoctoral Scholar – Microbial Ecology and Plant-Microbe Interactions with expertise in microbiology and biochemistry.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    In this exciting role, you will use highly controlled laboratory ecosystems, synthetic biology, genomics, metabolomics tools, and defined microbial communities to identify relationships between plant chemistry, archaea and Nitrogen transformations. The main goal of this project is to dissect factors defining plant-archaea interactions and their role in nutrient cycling in the rhizosphere of bioenergy crop.

    What You Will Do:
    • Design and execute laboratory experiments to identify factors that mediate nutrient and metabolite exchanges between plants, archaea and other members of the defined community.
    • Analyze microbial genomic and transcriptomic data.
    • Perform metabolomics analysis.
    • Develop and perform biochemical assays.
    • Work closely with other project team members to design and engineer (gene manipulation, genome editing) microbial systems.
    • Keep precise and detailed laboratory notebooks, maintain and manage all resources generated throughout the project.
    • Publish research results in peer-reviewed journals.
    • Present results to internal groups and at a national meeting.

    REQUIREMENTS

    What Is Required:
    • Ph.D. in microbiology, biochemistry, genomics, molecular biology, or a related field.
    • Experience of culturing and characterization of environmental microorganisms.
    • Experience with basic molecular biology techniques, such as DNA/RNA extraction, qPCR, sample preparation for sequencing.
    • Knowledge of genome engineering approaches.
    • Experience with LC-MS based metabolomics analysis.
    • Experience in computational skills for analysis of genomic and transcriptomic data.
    • Demonstrated scientific productivity through publications in relevant peer-reviewed journals.
    • Strong verbal and written communication skills.

    PREFERENCES

    Additional Desired Qualifications:
    • Data analysis using Python and/or R.
    • Imaging of fluorescently labeled microbial communities (e.g., recombinant fluorescent protein expression, FISH).
    • Understanding of rhizosphere biology and plant-microbe interactions.

    TERMS

    • This is a full time, 1 year postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 3 years paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
    • M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
    • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.
    • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

    LOCALE

    Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

    COMPENSATION

    Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.

    Working at Berkeley Lab has many rewards including a competitive compensation program, excellent health and welfare programs, a retirement program that is second to none, and outstanding development opportunities.
