The Michigan Society of Fellows offers a unique opportunity for postdoctoral fellows that provides three years of academic support. Fellows are funded to initiate a research program and contribute to the teaching mission of the University.
A postdoctoral scholar position is available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The University of Michigan to characterize methylmercury degradation by methanotrophs. The research is funded by the National Science Foundation and will occur under the direct supervision of Professor Jeremy D. Semrau. The position is available for one year, with the possibility of being extended to two years contingent on satisfactory performance and continued funding.
The postdoctor will be associated with the project “MetaNorSE: Meta-omic interpretation of Norwegian Salmon gastrointestinal Ecosystems” which aims to decipher gut microbiome-host metabolic networks that exert major influence in Norwegian Salmon nutrition and health.
A postdoctoral scientist position (1+ years) is available in Dr. Nicole Koropatkin’s group at the University of Michigan Medical School in the Dept. of Microbiology and Immunology. This project will involve a multidisplinary approach combining structural biology, enzymology, molecular genetics and animal models in order to determine how key enzymes and proteins equip bacteria for glycan scavenging in the gut.
The Medical School, the College of Pharmacy, and College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA), and the Life Sciences Institute (LSI) at the University of Michigan have partnered to offer the Michigan Life Sciences Fellows program, a highly competitive postdoctoral fellowship program to enhance the research program of the entire life sciences enterprise at Michigan.
The University of Washington, Seattle invites applications for four postdoctoral scholar positions in two interdisciplinary projects in environmental science and engineering. One project will involve the development of a novel biotechnology for water treatment, building on knowledge of natural microbial communities to construct synthetic assemblages of anaerobic and aerobic ammonia oxidizers for nitrogen removal. We are seeking candidates in a) reactor technology/process engineering b) mathematical modelling of biological systems and c) microbial ecology/physiology.
The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) has an opening for an ASM Journals Fellow. The purpose of the fellowship is to conduct research and analysis in peer-reviewed scientific publishing. Specific research areas that have been initially identified include:
The Hatzenpichler Lab at Montana State University, Bozeman, is looking for a postdoctoral scholar to study the spatial organization of microbial activity in marine sediments. Specifically, we seek to analyze the identity, three-dimensional distribution, and cell-cell interactions of metabolically active microbes in salt marsh and deep-sea sediments.
