Postdoctoral Scientist Position in Geobiology
The Biogeochemistry and Geobiology group at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for a postdoctoral scientist position in the area of the biogeochemistry of sulfate reducing bacteria. This position will have two primary foci. This first will investigate the effects of sulfate transporters on the magnitude of sulfur isotope fractionation during sulfate reduction; the second will explore the oxygen isotope systematics of enzymes within the sulfate reduction pathway. Both projects involve collaborations will other research groups at Washington University and outside institutions. Opportunities exist for the postdoctoral scientist to also participate in other existing and future projects.
The ideal candidate will have experience with cultivation of anaerobic microorganisms, as well as experience with common microbiological laboratory techniques such as PCR and molecular cloning. Experience with enzymology or with stable isotope analysis is desirable. The initial appointment will be for one year with a second year contingent on satisfactory performance. Further extension may be possible if additional funding becomes available.
Applicants should send a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae (including full publication list), a statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for three references to Prof. Alex Bradley (abradley at eps.wustl.edu). A Ph.D. in a related field is required at the time of appointment. The position will be available starting September 1, 2015. Applications will be reviewed as they are submitted and the position will remain open until filled. Preference will be given to candidates that apply by August 15, 2015, with a desired start date no later than November 1, 2015.
