POSTDOC: Modeling microbial DOC transformation using transcriptomes and high resolution DOC characterization

A postdoctoral position is available at the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia to work with an interdisciplinary team of ecologists, microbiologists an biogeochemists to develop models of DOC transformations using simultaneously collected transcriptomes and FTICRMS data. The postdoc will be supervised by Ford Ballantyne, but will regularly interact with theother PIs (Mary Ann Moran, Patricia Medeiros, John Amster and Barny Whitman) and postdoc(s) supported by the pro ject. The main goals are to develop and parameterize models of microbially mediated transformations of DOC using transcriptomes, FTICRMS data and HPLC data, simultaneously collected during incubations. There will be ample opportunities to develop new statistical methods to link gene expression and changes in DOC composition and to estimate kinetic rate parameters for DOC transformations.
A strong statistical background, prior experience with bioinformatics or the analysis of transcriptomes or systems biology modeling of metabolism are highly desired.

To apply, Pplease submit a cover letter, a current CV, a two page statement describing research interests and accomplishment and pdfs of up to three publications to [email protected] Review of applications will begin February 15 and continue until the position is filled.

The term of appointment will be one year with a salary between $38,000 and $42,000, depending on experience. The ideal starting date is sometime in the late spring or early summer, but some flexibility in the dates of the appointment exists. Pending availability of funds, an additional appointment of 6-12 months may be possible.
