Postdoctoral researcher: fungal ecology and comparative genomics
University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, MI
A new collaborative project at the intersection of fungal ecology and comparative genomics is looking to hire postdoctoral researchers. This NSF-funded research program is a collaboration between the University of Michigan (Tim James lab: http://www.umich.edu/~mycology/
) and the Joint Genome Institute (Igor Grigoriev lab: http://jgi.doe.gov/fungi
). The project will specifically investigate the biodiversity, ecology, and genomics of the ubiquitous but uncultured fungal phylum known as Cryptomycota. Primary responsibilities may include collection and processing of field samples (including water, invertebrates, protozoa), quantitating and cataloging Cryptomycota diversity using molecular methods, isolation and microscopy of parasites, single cell genome sequencing, and bioinformatics including assembly...
