The Laboratoire de Microbiologie des Environnements Extrêmes (LM2E) is offering a Postdoctoral researcher position in the international Horizon 2020 funded project S4CE ( Starting on April 15th, 2018, the position offers the possibility to enlarge the expertise and skills in terrestrial deep biosphere environmental Microbiology. The main task of the Postdoc project will be to study the deep biosphere microbiome (depending on samples available from several drilled sites) with a particular focus on diversity and function within the context of the environmental extreme conditions. Next generation sequencing methods including amplicon sequencing and metagenomics/metatranscriptomics will be used towards this goal. The postdoc will have the opportunity to extract genomic RNA and DNA for sequencing. The main emphasis will be on the bioinformatic processing and interpretation of NGS-generated data. Please send your application no later than April 1, 2018.
