‘Biogeochemical transformation of iron minerals and natural organic matter – relevance for greenhouse gas emission and water quality’

Application deadline:
Start date:
Location: University of Tübingen

Unique opportunity to investigation the role of microbial iron cycling on the carbon cycle in permafrost habitats.

Application deadline:

One to two postdoctoral positions are available at the Institute for Environmental Genomics (IEG; http://www.ou.edu/ieg) in the field of soil microbiology.  The postdoctoral associates will take a leadership role in developing methods to harvest and maintain viable bacteria from soil for a DoD-DARPA funded grant.  

Candidates with strong background, interest, and experience in microbial ecology and soil science are encouraged to apply. Additional experience is desirable in techniques that harvest viable cells directly from soil, sediment, and water samples. 

The position is available immediately, and ideally, the postdoctoral associate will begin no later than November 2018.  

Interested individuals should send their curriculum vita, a description of research interests and accomplishments (e.g., publications), and the names and telephone numbers of at least three references to Dr. Aifen Zhou (Aifen.Zhou-1@ou.edu). Salary will be commensurate with experience, expertise and skills. We will begin screening candidates at the end of September and will continue until all positions are filled.

The city of Norman is a university town with approximately 120,000 people and easy access to Oklahoma City, OK and Dallas, TX, and the University is working closely with the City on community and economic development. 

The Institute for Environmental Genomics, led by Dr. Jizhong Zhou, has state-of-the-art facilities for the study of microbial functional genomics, microbial ecology, metagenomics, single cell technology, and biotechnology development to address fundamental scientific questions. 

The University of Oklahoma is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and encourages diversity in the workplace.  Protected veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
