The DeLong lab is interested in studying microbial genomics, evolution and ecology in the open ocean, and applying systems biology approaches to the study of microbial community dynamics in the sea. Our work includes cultivation-independent genomic studies in the open ocean and on the seafloor, experimental studies of microbial community metabolic processes, and cultivation-dependent experimental and genomic work in the lab. The C-MORE Hale where we work is a state-of-the-art research facility, well equipped for oceanographic, biogeochemical, microbiological, biochemical, and ‘omic studies. We have frequent access to the sea, great research facilities, a modern high throughput genomics lab, and ready access to UH high performance compute facilities.
Current projects in our lab include studies of host-virus interactions in planktonic bacteria and archaea, metabolic modeling of microbes in the open ocean water column, and application of systems biology approaches to study planktonic and attached bacteria and archaea in the ocean water column, and on the seafloor.
Since our lab frequently uses field-based genomic approaches, strong quantitative computational biology skills are a plus. Individuals having background and interests in microbial genomics and allied fields, computational biology, or microbial ecology and evolution are all welcome to apply. The University of Hawaii Manoa is a a great place to work, play and live, and salaries are competitive.
