We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow for our new project on high resolution microbial oceanography at CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research in Hobart, Tasmania.
In particular we are seeking candidates with experience in analysis and/or annotation of genomic and metagenomic sequence data for metabolically-relevant genes using a range of tools (e.g. IMG, Genemark, Glimmer, megan4 etc). The expertise of the successful candidate will be used to:
– identify candidate functional marker genes for existing and emerging biogeochemical processes through screening of genomes, metagenomes and metatranscriptomes as well as database mining
– assemble and maintain databases of marker genes
– develop high throughput molecular tools based on marker genes, to interrogate the microbial community involved in key processes
I have attached the job description and would be grateful if you could post this at your institute and/or pass it on to potential candidates.
The detailed job description and application guideline is also available on CSIRO’s website: http://csiro.nga.net.au/publicfiles/csiro/jobs/246627b5-95c8-c5be-34a8-76e11665f859/TAS1302761%20Postdoctoral%20Fellow%20Functional%20Genomics.pdf
