A Postdoctoral Research Associate positon is available in my laboratory at Texas Tech University.

The NSF and DoD funded projects include complementary manipulative and non-manipulative studies in epiphytic and terrestrial plant communities.
Expertise in some or all of the following areas is desired: fungal molecular ecology, orchid mycorrhizal ecology, metagenomics, evolutionary ecology, community ecology, and ecological phylogenetics.
Competitive candidates will also possess the following attributes:
- Demonstrated proficiency in communicating research results (i.e., peer reviewed publications and scientific presentations)
- Strong quantitative analytical skills (bioinformatics and multivariate statistical analyses)
- Sample inventory and data management skills
- Strong collaborative skills to interact with all personnel associated with the projects
- Familiarity with developing and maintaining project related web pages is desirable
Competitive and commensurate with experience.
