The LOMIC (http://lomic.obs-banyuls.fr) has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher to investigate strategies of microbial carbon and iron metabolism in contrasting regions of the Southern Ocean. The postdoctoral researcher will explore already existing meta-genomes, -transcriptomes and -proteomes using up-to-date bioinformatics tools. This position is part of the interdisciplinary project MOBYDICK (https://www.mio.univ-amu.fr/mobydick/) with focus on the relationship between biodiversity and the ocean carbon cycle. The successful candidate will interact with a diverse team of researchers with expertise in marine biogeochemistry, microbial ecology and diversity, and physiology of key microbial model organisms. A doctoral degree in aquatic microbial ecology and experience in high-throughput sequencing data analysis and statistical tools (familiarity with the UNIX terminal environment; management of big data on clusters; running of Perl & Python scripts) is expected. This a 1.5-year position for a candidate with max. 2 years experience after the PhD.
Review of applications will start immediately and until the
