The Dekas Geomicrobiology Laboratory at Stanford University seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to lead a project on the physiological and ecological characterization of microbial candidate phyla. Next-generation sequencing has revealed a wealth of highly-divergent, widely-distributed microorganisms whose metabolic capabilities and ecologic function remain largely unknown. This project will explore the metabolic potential and activity of several of these groups using metagenomic, microscopic, and isotopic analyses.
