The Luis Pedro Coelho lab is moving to the Centre for Microbiome Research in Brisbane in Australia and is looking for two PhD students. If you are interested, please check out the official job announcement here!
The Coelho lab is hiring a postdoc to work with understand antimicrobial resistance trends in public metagenome databases directly connected to the EMBARK program. The work is mostly computational, but there can also be some field and lab work (collecting samples).
As all EMBARK positions, this postdoc project will be performed n collaboration with the rest of the EMBARK team, so if your current skill set doesn’t include all of this, but you are interested in the position, then do apply! This position is open until being filled, so send your application as soon as possible.
The lab looks for a candidate with a strong background (including graduate work) in either computational biology or microbiology. If you feel that you are the right person for this position, you can apply here. To apply: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV (preferably without a photo) and one representative publication. Later in the process, you will be asked for two reference letters, but they are not necessary for the initial application.

The Bengtsson-Palme lab is hiring a postdoc to work with environmental monitoring of antimicrobial resistance, directly connected to the EMBARK program. The postdoc will work with different aspects of establishing a baseline for background antibiotic resistance in the environment, standardization of monitoring protocols and development of methods to detect emerging resistance threats. The project will involve work with environmental sampling, DNA extractions, bacterial culturing and generation of large-scale DNA sequence data. In terms of bioinformatic analyses, the project will encompass analysis of next-generation sequence data, genome-resolved metagenomics, short-read assembly and network analysis.
The lab looks for a skilled bioinformatician, preferably with experience of experimental laboratory work. If you feel that you are the right person for this position, you can apply here. More information is also available here. The deadline for applications is January 3.
