UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences has become one of the largest and most fully developed interdisciplinary institutions of its kind in Europe. We have an opportunity for a researcher to work on a NERC funded project which will examine how polar diatoms respond to changes in their natural environment by studying keystone species from the Arctic Ocean using evolutionary genetics, environmental molecular biology, experimental evolution and ecology approaches (see Mock et al. 2017, Nature, DOI: 10.1038/nature20803).
You will be a postdoctoral scientist from the field of molecular microalgal research and will to conduct long-term and high-throughput growth experiments with polar diatoms under relevant environmental conditions in the laboratory. You will to have a relevant PhD (or equivalent qualification), experience in molecular biologist with laboratory experience in the field of sequence-led research with microalgae, and be able to fulfil all essential area of the person specification.
This full time post is available from 1 February 2018, or very soon thereafter, for a fixed term period of 35 months.
