The Marlow Lab at Boston University is seeking candidates for a two-year Postdoctoral Scholar position to advance the study of microbe-microbe and microbe-mineral interactions in complex communities through the U.S. Department of Energy’s efforts to pinpoint the “hot spots” and “hot moments” of metabolic activity. Research efforts will advance recent progress in the lab on mapping complex microbial communities in their native habitats by incorporating highly multiplexed FISH methods and spatially-resolved metabolic modelling. In the process, this research effort will get ever closer to seeing how microbes truly operate in the real world, and how their largely inscrutable activity can be seen on the microscale and connected with biogeochemical fluxes. Applicants should send questions and application materials to by October 31, 2021 for full consideration.
