Postdoctoral Scientist - Ruff Lab

Company: Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL)

Posted on: April 1, 2021

Job Description:

The Ruff Lab seeks a postdoctoral researcher (PD) to conduct independent research in microbial ecology and (eco)physiology. The overarching goal of the project is to investigate the ecophysiology of novel lineages of anoxygenic photorophic Chlorobi and their sulfur-based mutualistic interactions with sulfur-reducing Deltaproteobacterota. To obtain comprehensive insights into each population's niche and metabolic activity the PD will use a combination of approaches including multi-omics, stable istope probing, cultivation and high resolution microscopy. In collaboration with leading labs in their field the project includes viromics, long-read sequencing, stable-isotope probing, gas- and liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry, and Raman spectroscopy. The position is funded through a Simons Foundation Early Career Investigator Award enabling the PD to be part of an excellent network of marine microbial ecologists. The researcher will work in the Ecosystems Center as well as the Josephine Bay Paul Center and will be able to substantially shape the research direction and develop original questions within the overall scope of the project. We seek a creative, diligent and motivated postdoctoral scientist with a publication track record in environmental microbiology or related fields.
