Postdoctoral Positions: Microbial Ecology, Symbiosis, and Drug Discovery. Two post-doctoral positions available at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the laboratory of Dr. Cameron Currie. We are currently studying the role of small molecules in mediating symbiotic associations and the potential application of these compounds as drug leads. Drug Discovery and Bioinformatics – One position will focus on using next-generation sequencing technology and bioinformatics to help discover novel natural products. Specifically, the applicant will be expected to help facilitate the discovery of novel compounds through more rapid identification of strains with high secondary metabolite potential and explore the evolution of secondary metabolite biosynthesis across symbiotic microbes. Microbial Symbiosis – One position will focus on exploring the symbiosis between antibiotic-producing bacteria and fungus-growing ants using diverse approaches, including genome sequencing, RNA-Seq, imaging mass spectrometry, secondary...

The Rodale Institute in Kutztown, PA is searching for a Project Research Coordinator to join our team and participate in a dynamic research program with unlimited outreach potential. This opening is specifically linked to our long running, Farming Systems Trial or FST. This position is a permanent full time position with benefits. The Farming Systems Trial (FST)® at Rodale Institute is America’s longest running, side-by-side comparison of organic and chemical agriculture. Started in 1981 to study what happens during the transition from chemical to organic agriculture, the FST surprised a food community that still scoffed at organic practices. Over time, FST became a comparison documenting the long term potential of the two systems. As we face uncertain and extreme weather patterns, growing scarcity and expense of oil, lack of water, and a growing population, humanity will require farming systems that can adapt, withstand or even mitigate these problems while producing healthy, nourishing food. The Farming Systems...

The Smith Lab in the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Florida is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher for Fall 2014 to work on a recently funded NSF proposal “Symbiotic ectomycorrhizal fungi in southern South America – macroecology and evolutionary history from community to landscape scale.” This is a 1-year position with the possibility of extension for up to 3 years. Project: This project will document the biodiversity and biogeography of ectomycorrhizal fungi in southern South America, with a focus on native trees in the genera Nothofagus and Salix. This work will use a combination of environmental DNA sequencing and specimen-based sampling to explore the effects of environmental factors (such as soil pH, host plant density, and host diversity) on diversity and community structure of ectomycorrhizal fungi. Phylogenetic methods will also be used to explore the evolutionary history of fungi from...
