Multiple postdoctoral positions are available at the Institute for Environmental Genomics (IEG) and Department of Microbiology and Plant Biology, the University of Oklahoma We would like you to assist us identify multiple postdoctoral researchers to work on a few ongoing projects at the Institute for Environmental Genomics and Department of Microbiology and Plant Biology, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma, USA.
Those projects are funded from U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and National Science Foundation (NSF), with foci on microbial ecology and community genomics for understanding the diversity, composition, structure, function and dynamics of microbial communities related to global change, bioremediation, land use, bioenergy, and agricultural practices as well as their assemble mechanisms and linkages with ecosystem functioning using metagenomics approaches, such as functional gene arrays, high-throughput sequencing, and single cell genomics. We are also developing metagenomic and bioinformatic tools for high throughput data analysis and predictive modeling of molecular ecological networks.
Particularly, we are seeking candidates with strong background, interests, and experience in microbiology, microbial ecology, soil science, theoretical ecology, and/or metagenomics. Additional experience in bioinformatics, mathematics, computer science, and/or statistics is desirable. All individuals will work cooperatively with scientists at different institutions.
