Postdoctoral Scientist – Microbial Ecology and Imaging
Position summary: A postdoctoral position in microbial ecology is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jessica Mark Welch in the Bay Paul Center (https://www.mbl.edu/jbpc/staff/jmarkwelch/) at the Marine Biological Laboratory. We use fluorescence spectral imaging and other advanced microscopy techniques, in conjunction with metagenomics, to study the organization of microbial communities in the human mouth and other environments. The successful candidate will interact closely with collaborators at other institutions as well as with the vibrant and collegial MBL scientific community.
Additional information: Currently funded projects include (1) analysis of the community structure of the oral microbiome and genomic organization of major oral bacteria through the construction of pangenomes and metapangenomes, and (2) analysis of the micron-scale spatial organization of microbiomes both in vitro under various culture conditions and in samples from the human mouth. Members of our team may focus on one of these areas or work across both.
Basic qualifications: A Ph.D. in biological sciences or a related field is required.
Preferred qualifications: Experience with confocal microscopy, machine learning, computational image analysis, bioinformatics, and/or microbiology is desirable.
Physical requirements: This position requires fine motor skills and willingness to work with potentially biohazardous materials and standard laboratory chemicals including fixatives and solvents.
To apply, please submit the following items on the MBL Careers site. Required Documents:
(1) a cover letter describing your interests, skills, and prior research experience
(2) a curriculum vitae/resume
(3) the names and contact numbers of three persons who can be contacted as references
