Bioinformatics/Marine Microbial Ecology Postdoc Position

This advertised position is a two year postdoc to study the dynamics of
marine microbial communities and viral consortia associated with tropical
coral reefs. This project aims to understand the complex and evolving role
of microbes on coral reefs. This project is a large scale, multi-year field
experiment that examines links between microorganisms, macroorganisms, and
abiotic factors. The hired postdoctoral researcher will focus on the
generation and analysis of large next generation sequencing datasets.
Experience in sequence analysis, phylogenetics, and programming are
requirements. Other desirable general molecular and microbial ecology
laboratory training skills include: TRFLP, clone, and metagenomic library
generation, PCR, marine bacterial culturing, and general microscopy.
Opportunities for the postdoc to form an independent research project on
tropical reef microbial ecology will be encouraged.

This position will be based in the Microbiology Department at Oregon State
University in Corvallis, Oregon. Applications are due by July 15, 2011. The
position's start date is negotiable. Please send a current letter of intent,
CV, and a list of three references to (rvegathurber at gmail.com)
