*Postdoctoral Investigator Foraminiferal ecology/ geomicrobiology*

As part of a project funded by the US National Science Foundation, a
postdoctoral position is available in the WHOI Department of Geology &
Geophysics in Foraminiferal ecology/geomicrobiology. To apply please visit

The department of Geology and Geophysics is seeking a Postdoctoral
Investigator to join their team. This is a temporary full-time position and
is eligible for benefits. The initial appointment will be for one year with
the possibility of an extension.

The project seeks to identify how the integrative genetic, metabolic, and
physiological response of selected benthic foraminifera allows their
survival under different oxygen regimes. The successful candidate will play
a key role in the project, joining a larger team including geobiologists
(foraminiferal ecology and physiology), geochemists (reactive oxygen
species; nitrogen cycling), and computational metabolic modelers. The
successful candidate will (1) be experienced with transcriptome library
preparation, sequencing, annotation, and data analyses and will be
responsible for performing those analyses on foraminifera maintained under
different conditions; (2) be responsible for running ~3-week experiments
housed in an environmental cold room; (3) participate in a research cruise
(~9 days total) off Southern California; (4) assist with specimen isolation
and preparations.
