The SMBKrause lab in the School of Ecology and Environmental Sciences at East China Normal University received a 2 years NSFC (National Science Foundation China) funded project, entitled “From taxonomy to microbial functional diversity, a trait-based approach”. This project aims to improve the predictive understanding of microbial-driven biogeochemical cycles to global change by testing a functional-biodiversity approach that links ecological traits of microbes and their ecosystem function. Methane-consuming bacterial communities are used as a model system since these microbes utilize methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and thus, provide a key ecosystem process that is highly relevant to the regulation of the global climate.
The position is funded for 2 years. The starting date is flexible, but we would like to welcome the new lab member by March 1st, 2021. The postdoctoral researcher will work closely with undergraduate and graduate students. The SMBKrause lab was established in 2019, currently comprises 5 members in total, but keeps growing continuously. For bioinformatics analyses, the group has access to one of East China Normal University’s high-performance computing clusters (Thinksystem SD530) and also owns small servers for local operations.
The application must be submitted electronically and shall include:
