Postdoctoral Scientist - Ocean Biogeochemical Modeling
A postdoctoral scientist position in Ocean Biogeochemical Modeling is available at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole. This position is part of a large Simons Foundation collaborative project on Computational Biogeochemical Modeling of Marine Ecosystems (CBIOMES) that involves multiple investigators and is directed by Mick Follows at MIT. The MBL component of the project focuses on developing metabolic network representations of marine microbial food webs and their associated biogeochemistry. The goal of the MBL team is to leverage information gleaned from genome-scale models to improve understanding and modeling of marine ecosystems. Consequently, we are seeking applicants with expertise or familiarity in systems biology modeling combined with marine ecosystem modeling, or individuals with interest in exploring this new area of research. While not required, knowledge of Fortran, thermodynamics, genome-scale models, numerical analysis and/or optimal control theory will be considered advantageous. The successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively with members of the CBIOMES team. Review of applications will begin 1 Feb 2018 and continue until the position is filled. Funding support is available for up to five years, but performance will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Postdoctoral position in Molecular Microbial Ecology

A postdoctoral position in molecular microbial ecology is available at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole. This NSF-funded collaborative project  (DEB-1655552) with Julie Huber at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution seeks to identify the nature of microbial predator-prey interactions using laboratory chemostats combined with RNA stable isotope probing, sequencing, and trait-based modeling. We are seeking an individual with expertise in molecular microbial ecology, including those with interests in microbial, viral, and eukaryotic dynamics, microbial food webs, and theoretical ecology. While the primary focus of the work will be in research, the postdoctoral investigator will have an opportunity to participate in educational and outreach activities associated with the project.
