Postdoctoral fellowships in fungal taxonomy and genomics; one focused on fungi from dust #microBEnet

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN FUNGAL TAXONOMY AND GENOMICS. Keith Seifert is looking for two post-docs, one interested in the identification of microfungi, and the other interested in participating in a genome project, for two-year positions in Ottawa, Canada. The first position is funded by the A.P. Sloan Foundation. A large and diverse collection of 6000-7000 strains isolated by a dilution-to-extinction method from a global survey of house dust needs to be characterised for comparison with existing pyrosequencing data (see Amend et al. 2010.  PNAS 107: 13748-13753).  The second position is funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and other sources, and will require expertise in the bioinformatics around genome characterization, with the goal of developing real-time PCR assays for an economically important fungal species. Please contact Keith at keith.seifert@agr.gc.ca if you are interested.
