This position interfaces with several research groups collaborating on funded projects involving the application of metagenomics to the study of archaeal, bacterial, and fungal community composition and their links to soil biogeochemical processes. The postdoc will be based in the Integrated Program in the Environment at Indiana University, and will work collaboratively with the laboratories of Dr. Jeffrey White, Dr. Richard Phillips and Dr. Jonathan Raff, as well as with the Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics. Current projects include the study of fungal dynamics associated with permafrost thaw in the Arctic, and microbial community effects on production and emission of trace gases (e.g., CH4, VOC, NOx, and HONO) in temperate forest and agricultural soils. Qualifications: A Ph.D. in ecology, microbiology, molecular biology, environmental science, or biogeochemistry - completed before the start date. Demonstrated expertise in environmental metagenomics, microbial ecology, and soil biogeochemistry is required. Successful applicants will demonstrate the ability to work in interdisciplinary teams and will show promise as a group leader in environmental metagenomics analysis. Salary: $48,000 to $50,000 (commensurate with experience). Full benefits are included (see: http://www.indiana.edu/~uhrs/benefits/neweeo/support-index.html for details). Start date: We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible – we strongly prefer that the successful candidate start no later than May 31, 2017. The appointment is initially for a one-year period, renewable for an additional year based on satisfactory performance. To apply: Please submit 1) a brief cover letter describing your research/educational background, why you're interested in the position, and the date you are available to start and 2) a CV that includes the names and contact info (including email addresses) of three references to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. We will begin reviewing applications on March 10, 2017. For questions about the position, feel free to email Dr. Jeffrey White ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
