Ecology Jobs | Research Assistant Position @ LU

Ecology Jobs | Research Assistant Position @ LU, Sweden: Linnaeus University is one of Sweden’s newest higher education institutions. The university was formed when the University of Kalmar and Växjö University merged in 2010. So Linnaeus University is certainly not the country’s oldest university. But perhaps this makes us one of the most modern, characterized by new thinking.

Job description:

The duties comprise computer-based research within microbial evolutionary ecology focusing on analysis of nucleotide and proteomic data from marine bacterial communities or cultured microorganisms isolated from natural environments. Analysis of functional capacity in the form of, for example, metabolic reaction pathways will comprise one of the main duties. An interest in all areas of projects, from experiment planning to publication, is of great importance. You are expected to conduct own research, but also develop methodology for other researchers within the Linnaeus University Centre for Ecology and Evolution in Microbial model Systems (EEMiS) as well as supervise doctoral students within both computer-based analyses and writing research articles. The work also involves strategic planning of computer-based resources for the further development of EEMiS within the area.
