Två tjänster i metagenomanalys

Här är något för dig som är intresserad av mikrobiell mångfald och moderna sekvenserings- och sekvensanalysmetoder!

I. POST DOC – metagenomic analyses of microbes related to management of the Baltic Sea

Ref. no: SU 619-0098-12

A position as Post Doctor is open at the Department of Botany, Stockholm University (Reference number SU 619-0098-12). Deadline for application: February 20th, 2012.
Stockholm University is committed to academic excellence and is a world renowned university with about 60 000 students. The Department of Botany is within the Faculty of Science, and has about 70 employees. Teaching is oriented towards plant physiology, ecology and systematics. The plant physiology unit offers a stimulating atmosphere in well-equipped laboratories.

Position
The Department of Botany seeks to employ a post doctor that will produce new essential information within the framework of two international and multidisciplinary research programs: BEAM ‘Baltic Ecosystem Adaptive Management’ a Stockholm University Strategic Marine Environment program (www.smf.su.se/beam) andMiMeBS ’Microbial Metagenomics of the Baltic Sea’ (www.botan.su.se/physiology). MiMeBS isa collaborative program between scientists at Department of Botany and J. Craig Venter Institute (La Jolla, USA; www.jvci.org), and at SciLifeLab, Stockholm (www.scilifelab.se).

Focus
The position will be structured as a collaborative and stimulating effort with MiMeBS and BEAM team members. The focus will be on analyses of sequenced metagenomes and transcriptomes of the Baltic Sea microbial populations and on development of tools to make use of the information gained in an environmental context (via environmental data and models), in turn meant as means for an optimized management of the unique Baltic Sea.

Qualifications
The post doc position requires a person with a PhD in biology/microbiology/molecular biology/ bioinformatics, preferentially with knowledge in bioinformatic analyses and ecosystem processes, combined with knowledge/interest in management of aquatic ecosystems. Eligible candidates must have a strong record of academic research demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications. Collaborative and innovative skills as well as independence are expected, as is excellence in writing and speaking English. Eligible candidates have received a PhD exam in the past 3-5 years (from the application deadline).

Terms of employment
A 1.5 year (18 months) full time Post Doctoral position, starting as soon as possible 2012.

Application
The application, in English, should include and be organized as follows:
a cover letter outlining your qualifications, relevant experiences and interest in the position (max 1 page)
CV & publications (max 2 pages)
copies of degree certificates
names of two reference persons (give phone numbers and email addresses;
state the relation to the reference person)

For further information, contact Professor Birgitta Bergman, telephone +46-(0)8-16 3751, bergmanb@botan.su.se

Union representatives are Bo Ekengren (SACO), Lisbeth Häggberg (ST), telephone +46-(0)8-16 2000 (switch board), and Gunnar Stenberg (SEKO), telephone +46-(0)70 316 43 41.

A position as researcher is open at the Department of Botany, Stockholm University. Reference number SU 619-0311-12. Deadline for application: February 20th, 2012.

Stockholm University is committed to academic excellence and is a world renowned university with about 60 000 students. The Department of Botany is within the Faculty of Science, and has about 70 employees. Teaching is oriented towards plant physiology, ecology and systematics. The plant physiology unit offers a stimulating atmosphere in well-equipped laboratories.

Position
The Department seeks to employ a Researcher Fellow that will produce new essential information within the framework of an international and multidisciplinary research program: MiMeBS ’Microbial Metagenomics of the Baltic Sea’ localized at SU (www.botan.su.se/physiology). The MiMeBS program is a collaborative research effort with scientists at J. Craig Venter Institute (La Jolla, USA; www.jcvi.org) and SciLifeLab (Stockholm; www.scilifelab.se).

Focus & Expectations
The focus will be on analyses of large data sets from sequenced metagenomes, transcriptomes and single cell genomes of Baltic Sea microbial populations using bioinformatic tools; and to make use of the information gained in an environmental context as means for an optimized management of the unique Baltic Sea. The Research Fellow is also expected to be in charge of the MiMeBS bioinformatic team members and act as supervisor for students and post docs.

Qualifications
The position requires a person with a PhD in biology/microbiology/molecular biology/ bioinformatics, combined with a deep experience and expertise in bioinformatic tools and analyses. Eligible candidates must have a strong record of academic research demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications. Collaborative leader and innovative skills and independence are expected, as is excellence in writing and speaking English. Eligible candidates have received a PhD exam in the past 3-6 years (from the application deadline).
