The University of Washington invites applications for one postdoctoral scholar position to study how climate change stressors (sea-level rise and drought events) impact the greenhouse gas emissions of microbial wetland communities.  The project will require experience in working with anaerobic and aerobic cultures and to study the microbial physiology and ecology and their meta-genomic capacities. Therefore, we are looking for candidates with knowledge in culture-based techniques and with familiarity with recent advances in genetic and metabolite analyses.
