The Josephine Bay Paul Center at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) invites applications for a faculty position at the Assistant Scientist level in the area of evolutionary and functional genomics. The successful candidate will apply experimental and computational approaches to research areas including but not limited to: microbiome interactions, functional studies of host-associated marine microbial communities, evolutionary and ecological changes in marine systems, or genomic and transcriptomic studies of marine organisms.
The Bay Paul Center and the MBL have strengths in molecular evolution, functional genomics, microbial diversity and ecology, advanced imaging, and marine animal husbandry. The Center maintains state-of-the-art facilities for high-throughput sequencing and computational analysis. The MBL, an affiliate of the University of Chicago, has a distinguished history in fundamental biological discovery, now with a renewed focus on marine organisms, microbiomes, and the impact of environmental change on coastal ecosystems.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent advanced degree) in a relevant field. The successful candidate will demonstrate strong potential for establishing a vigorous extramurally supported research program that can complement existing areas of strength across the institution’s research and educational programs.
Application deadline: 1 March 2019
