Section(s) CN : Biodiversity, evolution and biological adaptations: from macromolecules to communities
The post-doc will be in charge of analyzing metagenomics data from a unique long-term marine microbial time series. The data set covers more than 10 years at a sampling frequency of up to twice a week. The post-doc will develop research topics on, but not restricted to, the seasonality of metabolic pathways and the ecology of microbial interactions. He or she will collaborate with a European team working on modeling communities, from plankton to bacteria, in relation to remote sensing.
Building gene abundance table, MAG reconstruction, data managing, statistics, writing papers, and more depending on skills
The successful postdoctoral fellow should have a solid background in analyzing metagenomics data (MAG reconstruction, building gene abundance table…) and a proven ability to analyze large datasets. A good knowledge of ecology and biostatistics would be an asset. Previous knowledge of marine microbial ecology is not a prerequisite.
Contexte de travail
The host laboratory is at the Banyuls Oceanological Observatory (OOB) in the south of France. The OOB is a marine station with a strong track record in the field of marine sciences. It's a dynamic institution that attracts a large number of students and visiting researchers each year. It's part of Sorbonne University, one of the leading universities in France, and CNRS, a key player in international research. The work will be coordinated by Pierre Galand and François Yves Bouget within the frame of the European project PETRI-MED.
