A postdoctoral position is currently open in the lab of Jocelyne DiRuggiero in the Department of Biology at Johns Hopkins University.
The DiRuggiero lab studies the genetic and functional diversity of microbial communities from extreme environments to identify the mechanisms that sustain biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. For more info, visit our website at http://krieger2.jhu.edu/biology/labs/diruggiero/lab/index.html.
The position is for an NSF-funded project to identify the factors that govern the genetic, structural, and functional composition of endolithic microbial communities. Qualified candidates will be enthusiastic, highly motivated, and will possess a demonstrable understanding of bioinformatics and computational biology with a background in molecular biology and/or microbial ecology. The candidate will have a doctoral degree in Genetics, Biology, Microbiology, Computer Science or a related ﬁeld. Programming and statistical skills in languages such as Perl, Python, and R, though not essential, are a plus.
Please send your CV, a brief statement of research interests and career goals, and contact information for three references to Jocelyne DiRuggiero at firstname.lastname@example.org.
