Postdoctoral Researcher in Algal Biology — Las Cruces, NM

The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) is seeking a talented and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Researcher to join a team of scientists to advance a DOE-funded project focused on enhancing productivity and stability of algal cultures by optimizing selection pressures and pest management. For more information on the project, see: ttps://bit.ly/2DhJAgH.
The researcher will be responsible for tracking trait drift/evolution in the lab and field and supporting field experiments in open raceway ponds.

Although supported by the NMC, the position will be housed at the New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM. This is a full-time position that offers a competitive salary and benefits (health, dental, life, disability and retirement plan). The start date of the position is April 1, 2020 and funding is anticipated to be available for at least three
years. Continued employment through this period is dependent on performance.

The minimum qualifications for the position include:
    • a Ph.D. in biology or other relevant discipline
    • strong working knowledge of biology, ecology, and evolution
    • experience conducting laboratory and/or field experiments with phytoplankton
    • laboratory experience demonstrating an attention to detail and commitment to safe work practices
    • the demonstrated ability to communicate (verbal and written) well in a professional scientific context
    • the ability to work across both small and large teams
    • commitment to achieving results in a complex social and organizational setting

Professor / Associate Professor — Nord University, Norway

The Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture (Campus Bodø), Nord University, Norway, invites applications for a permanent position as professor/associate professor.

The faculty is in the process of establishing a new research division ‘Algal and Microbial Biotechnology’, aimed at fostering research and education that contributes to the development of ‘blue bioeconomy’ in the region. This move is concurrent with the sustainable utilisation of the marine resources, especially in the context of the climatic changes in the Arctic region. The division to be established in 2020, will conduct research on macroalgae, microalgae and other microorganisms. The aim is to conduct studies on (i) fundamental sciences, including evolutionary adaptation of the aforementioned organisms, which provide cues for understanding their biological mechanisms that enable them to thrive in harsh and rapidly evolving Arctic environmental conditions; (ii) applied sciences employing biotechnological approaches to tap into the potential of these organisms as nutritional and nutraceutical sources, and the application of the organisms in bioremediation, considering the need for developing sustainable solutions for the environment.

We aim to appoint a full Professor/ Associate Professor in Algal Biochemistry to participate in research and education connected to the activities of the newly established group. This appointee is also expected to contribute to the overall development of the faculty.

The work tasks may change depending on the faculty’s research and teaching needs, and the competence of the employee.
