Postdoctoral Scientist in Microbial Ecology, University of Warwick, United Kingdom

Expires on: 05/08/2024

The University of Warwick’s School of Life Sciences seeks a Postdoctoral Scientist to join our dynamic team in Coventry, UK. This exciting opportunity involves research in microbial ecology within the context of spatial organization and microbial interactions. The successful candidate will contribute to a project funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, focusing on cyanobacteria-dominated natural microbial communities.

The selected candidate will investigate the impact of structural formation on microbial interactions and their evolution within aquatic environments. Collaborating with the research group of Orkun Soyer, the focus will be on understanding the feedbacks between spatial organization and microbial interactions in cyanobacteria-dominated microbial communities.


We are seeking candidates with a background in microbial physiology, microbial ecology, or microbial systems biology. Proficiency in quantitative approaches is essential. Applicants should have experience in microbial culturing, microbial physiology measurements, fluorescent microscopy techniques, microfluidics, data and image analysis, and genetics.
