Postdoctoral Position in Biogeography of Antarctic Microbiota

 We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral fellow to join a multidisciplinary team of scientists studying species diversification processes, phylogeographical patterns, adaptation, and co-evolutionary taxa interactions along the Southern Ocean using novel genomic tools, under the historical and contemporary climate change scenario. The candidate will be involved in assessing microbial biodiversity and biogeographic patterns along Antarctic/Subantarctic gradient in diverse environments, from lake sediments to marine invertebrate gut. 

The selected candidate will work closely with basic scientists specialized in molecular ecology, marine biology, microbial ecology, bioinformatics, and a group of world-renowned international collaborators from British Antarctic Survey (BAS), French Polar Institute Paul Emile Victor (IPEV), Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO), Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN, Paris), Norwegian Polar Institute, Research Center Dynamics of High Latitude Marine Ecosystems (IDEAL) and Réserve naturelle nationale des Terres australes françaises (RN TAF).
