Postdoctoral researcher: fungal ecology and comparative genomics University of Michigan Ann Arbor, MI Position description: 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...

Post-Doctoral Fellow/Research Associate in Phylogenetics/Molecular Diagnosis The main objective of this joint project between the Department of Plant Pathology & Environmental Microbiology at Penn State and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) is to survey and identify high-risk pathogens threatening the PA agriculture using both the molecular and conventional diagnostic tools. Main target pathogens are Phytophthora species, but additional pathogens may be included. Experience in phylogenetics and molecular diagnosis is highly desirable but not essential. The candidate will work at PDA (Harrisburg, PA), which is located about 1.5 hours away from Penn State. Main responsibilities include: (a) identifying Phytophthora isolates/species via sequencing and phylogenetic analysis, (b) assisting researchers at PDA in conducting real-time PCR-based detection of P. ramorum in stream samples and plant materials from local surveys; and (c) developing molecular diagnostic tools for selected pathogens. This...
