The selected candidate will perform experiments to discover key genetic determinants underpinning microbial fitness, productivity and persistence in industrial and environmental settings as well as develop novel biocontainment strategies through genome remodeling and trait engineering. The research will integrate methods from high-throughput genetics, directed evolution, transcriptomics, proteomics, and synthetic biology for novel microbial hosts relevant to bioenergy applications. This approach requires significant planning, organization, coordination, and communication. The candidate should expect to spend time performing high-throughput experiments, independently analyze and communicate results to the principal investigator, lead manuscript writing, mentor research associates, and work closely with both PNNL staff and external collaborators in a multi-disciplinary environment. The candidate will also have opportunities to develop new research elements aligned with their interests, within the context of a broader biosystems design research program that includes collaboration between PNNL and numerous other national labs, academic institutions, and industry. This is a full-time position anticipated to last 3 years (contingent on performance) starting in the Winter of 2020-2021. Applications shall be submitted online at . When prompted to upload a resume, please provide a single PDF file containing (1) a cover letter of 1 to 2 pages summarizing research interests and qualifications, including experience with synthetic biology approaches, a possible start date at PNNL, and (2) a CV listing past employment, education and research experiences, skills related to the qualifications listed below, publications, and contact information of three references. Minimum Qualifications Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years (60 months) or within the next 8 months from an accredited college or university. Preferred Qualifications The preferred candidate will have received a PhD in microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biomedical engineering, or a related engineering field from an accredited college or university. He or she will have demonstrated the ability to develop, lead, and safely execute research projects. A record of independent contributions to research programs, experience carrying experiments from design to manuscripts, and potential for project leadership roles is strongly desired. The preferred candidate will have a strong publication record in a relevant scientific field and the proven ability to collaborate effectively on teams. He or she will possess excellent oral and written communication skills and strong interpersonal skills. Desirable technical skills include genome engineering (lambda Red, Cas9), experience with DNA and RNA-based biosensors, high-throughput sequencing and analysis (Illumina, PacBio, Oxford Nanopore), transposon mutagenesis library generation and analysis, and cell density and fluorescence assays via microtiter plate reader and cytometer.
