Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biological Sciences

Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Sciences

Lecturer of Exercise and Sport Studies

Visiting Assistant Professor of the Study of Women & Gender and English Language and Literature


Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biological Sciences

The Department of Biological Sciences at Smith College invites applications for a full-time, benefits-eligible, non-tenure-track postdoctoral research position focusing on characterizing germline and somatic genomes of ciliates isolated from various freshwater and marine habitats, to begin August 15, 2016. The position will be housed in Professor Laura Katz's laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences (http://www.science.smith.edu/departments/Biology/lkatz/Research.htm). The initial appointment is for one year, with the possibility of extending for additional years. Ph.D. in genome evolution or a related field is required by time of appointment.

The goal of the project is to assess intraspecific variation in both somatic macronuclei and germline micronuclei from diverse ciliates.  The ideal candidate will: 1) be a productive researcher with interests in population genetics and phylogenomics of microorganisms; 2) have experience working with eukaryotic microbes and/or the bioinformatic tools required to analyze complex genome data; 3) have excellent communication and interpersonal skills; and 4) be interested in collaborating with graduate and undergraduate students in the laboratory.  The project is collaborative with George McManus at the University of Connecticut (http://microzooplankton.uconn.edu/people.html).

Research in the Katz lab aims to elucidate principles of the evolution in eukaryotes through analyses of microbial groups, and to assess how these principles apply (or fail to apply) to other organisms.  Currently we focus on three interrelated areas: (1) characterizing evolutionary relationships among eukaryotes; (2) exploring the evolution of ciliate genomes; and (3) describing the phylogeography of coastal marine ciliates.
