A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Jumpponen Laboratory and Kansas State University Bioinformatics Core facility. As a part of a large collaborative research effort combining two universities (Kansas and Oregon State Universities) and two national laboratories (Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory / DOE Joint Genome Institute), we are seeking a systems biologist, metabolic pathway modeler, or bioinformatician. A successful applicant will possess abilities and expertise to integrate across large metagenomic, metatranscriptomic, metaproteomic, and metabolomic datasets characterizing soil communities and functions in response to environmental change. In addition to the integration component, we expect this individual to assume responsibilities for empirical and/or de novo modeling of universal metabolic pathways to better understand connections among the “–omic” datasets. Ph.D. in Biology, Systems Biology, Bioinformatics or equivalent field is required. Post-doc experience would be preferable, but not necessary. We offer a competitive salary, full benefits after a probationary period, and support training opportunities at participating university and national laboratories.
Start date is preferably June/July 2011, but flexible. To apply, please e-mail a cover letter, CV, and names and contact information of three references as a single pdf to Ari Jumpponen (firstname.lastname@example.org), with the subject line as "Postdoc application Kansas State University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity among its employees.
