The BioBE Center is currently seeking two postdoctoral researchers to explore fundamental questions in microbial ecology and evolution.

Postdoctoral Position in Phylogenetic Ecology and Computational Genomics: Applicants should have a PhD with extensive training in ecology and/or evolution, experience applying genome-based bioinformatics (e.g. comparative genomics, analysis of protein families, multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic analyses) to understand the ecology and/or evolution of complex biological communities, and strong writing skills.  See full job advertisement and apply at

Postdoctoral Position in Theoretical Ecology and Evolution: Applicants should have a PhD with extensive quantitative training (e.g. in theoretical ecology/evolution, physics, or applied math), expertise in coding mathematical and statistical models, and strong writing skills.  See full job advertisement and apply at

Successful candidates will play a key role in the Biology and Built Environment (BioBE) Center ( The BioBE Center is training a new generation of innovators and practitioners at the architecture-biology interface to understand the built environment microbiome – the diversity of indoor microbial life, their genetic elements and their interactions. The vision of this national research center, funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, is to integrate recent advances in microbial genomics and biological theory to develop hypothesis-driven, evidence-based approaches to sustainable building design.

The positions are available for 1 year with the possibility for renewal depending on performance. The start date is flexible. Applications will be considered starting on May 31, 2011. Please email questions regarding the position to Jessica Green ( Women and minorities encouraged to apply.  We invite applications from qualified candidates who share our commitment to diversity.
