  • (OCE) Postdoctoral Fellowship 2012 - Ecogenomics and Plant Invasions

    CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences is offering a prestigious OCE (Office of the Chief Executive) Postdoctoral Fellowship in the area of plant invasion ecology. The Postdoctoral Fellow will apply ecogenomic approaches to determine why several of Australia’s worst environmental weeds are undergoing dieback.

    The project will involve testing likely hypotheses using a combination of theory, field survey, experimental work and ecogenomics. The application of next generation sequencing technologies and ecogenomics will be particularly critical given the complexity of soil-associated microbial flora and the need to comprehensively document endophytic communities and their interactions. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be part of a high-performing, collaborative group of researchers producing high impact science in the ecology and management of invasive plants, evolutionary ecology of plant-soil microbe interactions, plant pathology and metagenomics.

    Location: Queensland EcoSciences Precinct, Dutton Park, Brisbane
    Salary: AUD75K - AUD82K per annum plus up to 15.4% superannuation
    Tenure: 3 year term
    Ref No.: Q12/00946

    Requirements of the successful candidate will include:
    PhD (or will shortly satisfy requirements for PhD) in a relevant field such as plant community ecology, soil biology or the evolutionary ecology of host-microbe interactions;Demonstrated experience in ecogenomics and bioinformatics, or plant-fungal interactions, and good knowledge of/ familiarity with the other of these;Excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills, including an ability to publish in high quality journals and present research at national/international conferences.
