The Forest Entomology and Symbiology team at the University of Florida is seeking TWO POSTDOCS: Postdoc 1: FUNGAL TAXONOMY. - Discover and describe lots of new fungal symbionts of insects using culturing, multi-marker genotyping, and imaging technology of your choice. Postdoc 2: FUNGAL METAGENOMICS. - Characterize communities of fungal symbionts inside beetles using high-throughput shotgun sequencing of fungal ribosomal RNA. Our team studies the symbiosis between wood boring insects and fungi (www.ambrosiasymbiosis.org). Our projects range from fundamental research on coevolution to management of invasive pests in the world’s forests. Our team is young, growing, and heavily multidisciplinary – join us! Both postdocs will also collaborate with the UF Mycological Herbarium, the UF Forest Pathology lab, and the UF Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research. Apply by email to hulcr@ufl.edu with the subject header “Symbiosis postdoc 2014”, and specify which project you are interested in. Please submit your CV (include evidence of ability to get projects finished and papers written) and contacts to three most recent supervisors. Start: any time during the Fall of 2014. Application deadline: July 20, 2014
