Faculty Position in Evolutionary
Genomics and Molecular Evolution
Josephine Bay Paul Center for Comparative
Molecular Biology and Evolution,
Marine Biological Laboratory
The Josephine Bay Paul Center at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) invites applications for a faculty position at the Assistant Scientist level in the area of evolutionary and functional genomics. The successful candidate will apply experimental and computational approaches to research areas including but not limited to: microbiome interactions, functional studies of host-associated marine microbial communities, evolutionary and ecological
changes in marine systems, or genomic and transcriptomic studies of marine organisms.
The Bay Paul Center and the MBL have strengths in
molecular evolution, functional genomics, microbial
diversity and ecology, advanced imaging, and marine
animal husbandry. The Center maintains state-of-the-art facilities for high-throughput sequencing and
computational analysis. The MBL, an affiliate of the
University of Chicago, has a distinguished history in
fundamental biological discovery, now with a renewed
focus on marine organisms, microbiomes, and the impact of environmental change on coastal ecosystems.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent advanced
degree) in a relevant field. The successful candidate will demonstrate strong potential for establishing a vigorous extramurally supported research program that can complement existing areas of strength across the
institution’s research and educational programs.
The MBL is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity/
Disabled/Veterans Employer and strongly encourages
applications from candidates who would contribute to the diversity of its research community. Applications will be reviewed immediately upon receipt and will continue on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Those interested in the position should submit an application, including a CV, short summary of accomplishments and future research interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references to email@example.com.
For full consideration applications should be
submitted by March 1, 2019
