We are seeking to fill several postdoc positions focused on the newly described process of pyrite reduction. Specifically, our project focuses on defining the mechanisms by which methanogens (and other organisms) reductively dissolve pyrite, how they assimilate dissolution products, and mechanisms of metal bioconcentration. We are particularly interested in the acquisition and bioaccumulation of thiophilic trace metals that are in high demand for renewable energy technologies from pyritic ores including nickel, cobalt, and molybdenum. We seek to add to our dynamic working environment to build integrated expertise that spans microbial physiology, biochemistry, electron microscopy, spectroscopy, omics approaches, electrochemistry, and geochemistry. Positions are open until filled.
