Postdoc position in nitrogen fixation

July 16, 2013

Maren Friesen is recruiting a postdoc for a new project.  It is not exactly on rhizobia, but I am sure that experience with rhizobia would come in handy for this.  Here is the message she has just circulated.

Nitrogen is one of the most limiting nutrients in terrestrial ecosystems. A new joint project between the Friesen lab at Michigan State University and the Rutherford & Buck labs at Imperial College London seeks to isolate and characterize microbes with novel biological nitrogen-fixation capabilities. A talented and collaborative individual is sought to join the Friesen lab as a postdoc to contribute to this project. Desired skills include microbiology, biochemistry, and genetics/genomics (there will be no plant work in the current phase of this project). The position will be located at MSU in East Lansing, MI, with opportunities to participate in field collections and collaborative stays in London. The successful candidate will be encouraged to develop independent lines of research and will benefit from an egalitarian and highly interactive lab environment. Start date is as soon as possible. Please send CV and ~1-page statement of research interests to
