Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral position
in the
Centre for Microbial Ecology and Genomics
University of Pretoria

The following 2-year postdoctoral position, starting January 2023, is available. Skills in microbial ecology, phylogenetics, metagenomics and relevant bioinformatics methods are particularly desirable.

Namib Desert Microbial Ecology
The postdoc will participate in our long-term Namib Desert microbiomics program, based on an annual field expedition to the Gobabeb Research Station. Major planned experiments will investigate very short-term functional-microbiome responses to water addition using a combination of metagenomics, MAG assemblies and metatranscriptomics, and probe the roles of desert plant rhizosphere communities in drought adaptation.

Applications should include a covering letter, a full CV and an indication of availability. Applications and enquiries should be directed to Professor Don Cowan, Centre for Microbial Ecology and Genomics, University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa (This email address is being protected from spambots.
