The Duhaime Lab (http://www-personal.umich.edu/~duhaimem/) at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is seeking a postdoc excited to apply culturing, analytical spectroscopy (FTIR, Raman, GC-MS, SIMS, SED/EDS), and omics approaches (transcriptomics, metabolomics) to understand the fate of plastic pollution in the environment. We are currently seeking to disentangle the independent and synergistic effects of abiotic and biotic degradation mechanisms and to understand how these processes influence the transformation and transport of plastic in aquatic environments. Current research is focused on culturing polyethylene-degrading microbial isolates and enrichments and the synergistic application of spectroscopy and omics technologies to describe degradation mechanisms and rates in different aquatic habitats. This work involves both laboratory-based experimentation and field work at domestic and international sites. This project is a component of an interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers in both industry and academia. This position is a good fit for someone with expertise in at least one of these areas and familiarity with/interest in learning the others: 1) bacterial and/or fungal metabolism, 2) polymer biochemistry, 3) bioinformatic analysis of sequence data, 3). The ideal candidate will have a combination of these skills. A shared commitment to supporting a lab ethos of racial justice, equity, diversity and inclusion is expected of the hired candidate. The Fellow will be involved in all aspects of research, including design and execution of experiments, data analysis, manuscript preparation, and presentation, and mentoring.
