Postdoctoral Associate in Marine Microbial Ecology

We are seeking two or three post-docs to join an interdisciplinary lab working at the intersection of plankton ecology and the consequences of climate change. We have several active projects including work on marine microbial biogeography and bioinformatic analysis of eukaryotic (protist) transcriptomes. The position is located at Mount Allison University (Sackville, NB, Canada) and Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS, Canada). We have strong collaborative relationships with colleagues at MIT and other US universities. Funding is provided by the Simons Foundation and NSERC Canada.

We are seeking independent, creative researchers with a keen interest in developing new computational skills. Your primary focus will likely be in one of statistical modelling, time-series analysis, or bioinformatics.

You should have a PhD with research experience in one or more of statistics, oceanography, or marine ecology. Strong computing skills with experience with R and Bayesian statistical modeling tools would be an asset. Your application should include a c.v., contact information for three referees, and a brief description of your research experience, interests and goals. Send your inquiries or application as a pdf to Andrew Irwin, Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
