Postdoctoral research associate in Microbial Ecology and Genomics
(position 19005029)

This search is part of a cluster hire of postdoctoral research associates, supported by a 5-year, $20 million NSF EPSCoR RII Track-1 grant to the University. In this project we will study microbial life and its ecological consequences; additional details can be found at http://www.uwyo.edu/epscor/microbial-ecology.  

The van Diepen Soil Microbial Ecology lab (http://www.uwyo.edu/esm/faculty-and-staff/linda-van-diepen/index.html) at the University of Wyoming is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in microbial ecology and genomics. Minimum requirements include a PhD in a relevant discipline, experience with omics methods including proficiency in bioinformatics analysis of omics data (specifically metagenomics and transcriptomics), and experience in R programming or other statistical software. Additional preferred qualifications include experience with microbial culturing techniques, biogeochemistry, field work, and method development.

 The University of Wyoming is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law and University policy.  Please see www.uwyo.edu/diversity/fairness.

To apply, please complete the online application through http://bit.ly/2Ikqrfo with the correct position number (position 19005029). Please upload a single PDF file containing a cover letter, CV, contact information for three references, and two papers describing recent research. Review of applications will continue until a suitable applicant is identified. Interested applicants may apply for more than one position as long as they meet the minimum and preferred qualifications.
