We're hiring


Seth Bordenstein ( is seeking a postdoctoral fellow in metagenomics, microbial ecology, or systems biology.  The ideal candidate will pursue innovative research that compliments ongoing work in the lab on evolution, genome-microbiome interactions, and phylosymbiosis. We particularly encourage applications in the following areas:

·      Host-associated microbiomes (including but not limited to 16S rRNA gene sequencing, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatic analyses using animal, plant or microbial systems)
·      Systems Biology (including but not limited to novel approaches in the genesis and processing of multi-omic data and models to integrate these data)
·      Quantitative and Computational Biology (including but not limited to bioinformatics, comparative functional genomics, and population genetics of large data sets)

We welcome cross-disciplinary approaches to understand how animals develop, function, interact and evolve. All candidates must have demonstrated excellence and creativity in applying next-generation sequence data to quantitative community, evolutionary, or ecological themes.

To apply or ask questions, please send information to Seth Bordenstein ( Please submit a CV and 1-2 page research statement describing your research interests, background and your goals for your career and postdoc. Please also include the names and contact information for at least 3 references. Applications will be reviewed immediately until a suitable candidate is identified.
