Because I have not officially started yet, I have not been able to advertise this position officially. But I am looking to recruit a postdoc to join me as I start my lab. This position will be for one year initially with a renewal for an additional year after review. I am also happy to support a postdoc who wants to apply for independent funding to extend their time with me if they like.
This position, because it's not tied to any grant, is extremely flexible. I'm looking to recruit a colleague who is motivated to study pretty much anything related to insect-microbial symbiosis or microbial ecology, especially where the fields intersect, but not necessarily. Do you have some ideas about something you'd like to study? I'd be happy to work with you to apply for grants to fund your own research and set you up for your future career!
The ideal candidate will be someone who was recently granted a PhD in microbiology, ecology, or entomology, who is strong in bioinformatics or computational biology, has fieldwork experience, and is comfortable in the lab. Experience with mentoring undergrads and grad students would be great too. Of course, if you don't check off all the boxes, you might still be a good fit. I'm mostly looking for someone who is motivated to do cool science and to make the most of a flexible situation.
If you're interested, please send me an email with your CV, a website if you've got one, and an idea of why you would be interested in joining my lab.
