Department Ecosystems Center
Position Type: Scientist
Position Title: Postdoctoral Scientist - Ocean Biogeochemical Modeling
Position Summary:

A postdoctoral scientist position in Ocean Biogeochemical Modeling is
available at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole. This position is
part of a large Simons Foundation collaborative project on Computational
Biogeochemical Modeling of Marine Ecosystems (CBIOMES) that involves
multiple investigators and is directed by Mick Follows at MIT. The MBL
of the project focuses on developing metabolic network representations of
marine microbial food webs and their associated biogeochemistry. The goal
of the MBL team is to leverage information gleaned from genome-scale models
to improve understanding and modeling of marine ecosystems. Consequently,
we are seeking applicants with expertise or familiarity in systems biology
modeling combined with marine ecosystem modeling, or individuals with
interest in exploring this new area of research. While not required,
knowledge of Fortran, thermodynamics, genome-scale models, numerical
analysis and/or optimal control theory will be considered advantageous. The
successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively with members
of the CBIOMES team. Review of applications will begin 1 Feb 2018 and
continue until the position is filled. Funding support is available for up
to five years, but performance will be reviewed on an annual basis.
