‘Biogeochemical transformation of iron minerals and natural organic matter – relevance for greenhouse gas emission and water quality’
Unique opportunity to investigation the role of microbial iron cycling on the carbon cycle in permafrost habitats.
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.Zhoufirstname.lastname@example.org). 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.
