A postdoc position is available in the Amend Lab at the Department of Botany at the University of Hawaii. The successful applicant will join a growing and dynamic group of researchers interested in microbial ecology and evolution within the unique Hawaiian archipelago. The postdoctoral associate will be responsible for carrying out a study whose goal is to determine how the mycophagous diet of a Federally endangered tree snail, Achatinella mustelina, covaries among populations and host plant species. The snail is one of several species within Achatinella comprising a spectacular adaptive radiation endemic to the island of Oahu. Additional background information is available on the Tree Snail Conservation Lab website: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~trsnlab/index.html Primary research objectives will be to analyze and synthesize for publication, a large Illumina amplicon dataset of fungi and bacteria from 150 host plant biofilm/snail feces pairs to infer diet dynamics from throughout the snail's natural and captive range. A secondary objective will be to isolate and identify fungal species from host trees to augment captive snail breeding programs....
