    samples. The appointee will distill and compare large sequence data
    sets to provide comparative metagenomic and metatranscriptomic
    analysis for both prokaryotic and eukaryotic (coral) sequences,

    computer language commonly used for such is required.
    • Proficiency with environmental metagenomic, metatranscriptomic,
    and coral holobiont applications is highly desired.

    A statement of interest, Curriculum Vitae and contact information
    for two persons who can provide letters of recommendation are required.
