Post Doctoral Positions

Fully-Funded M.Sc., M.A., Ph.D. and Post-Doctoral Positions: Genomic Network for Fish Identification, Stress and Health

Join a revolution in freshwater fish conservation!

Our Canada-wide, multi-million-dollar program will be a game-changer for freshwater fish management and conservation. We are looking for science and social science graduate students to: • Get in on the ground floor in the rapidly growing area of environmental DNA research;  • Be part of the largest aquatic eDNA experiment ever undertaken; • Develop the first universal transcriptional array for freshwater fish; • Be among the first to explore the potential ethical and legal challenges in aquatic genomics based research.

Develop a professional network working side-by-side with our partners from academia, industry and government while you work in a state-of-the-art lab or do fieldwork in the most remote areas of Canada…or both!

Opportunities are available for positions in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick starting in 2020 to 2024. Canadian citizens and landed immigrants will be given first consideration.

GEN-FISH is a collaborative research project established by the University of Windsor and partners and funded by Genome Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

Fully-Funded Postdoctoral Fellow Position:

Genomics of Aquatic Microbial/Microplankton Ecology & Invasion Biology

Posted:  June 11, 2019

The Heath Research Group at the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER), University of Windsor is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to lead a project investigating microbial/microplankton community dynamics associated with fresh and marine water environments and their potential for ecological invasiveness. As UV ballast water treatment is an important approach to managing aquatic invasive species, this project will target the genomics and transcriptomics of UV DNA damage and repair mechanisms. The Postdoctoral Fellow will have full access to our Institute’s advanced genomics and transcriptomics infrastructure and work closely with our Industry partner (Trojan UV). GLIER is internationally recognized as a leader in aquatic invasive species (AIS) research, informing national government policies and international shipping agreements.

What are the desired qualifications?

·PhD in biology, molecular biology, limnology, bioinformatics or related field awarded after May 2014.

·Strong background in molecular biology and genomics.

·Experience in bioinformatics (especially meta-barcoding, metagenomics and meta-transcriptomics) is essential; an understanding of microbial/microplankton community dynamics is desired.

·Ability to develop research projects as demonstrated by record of accomplishment.

·Proficient oral and written communication skills to present and explain technical information, and interpersonal skills to collaborate effectively in a multidisciplinary team environment.

·Most importantly, the successful candidate will have a strong motivation to learn new things, solve problems, participate in fieldwork and pursue research in an interdisciplinary framework.

Apply to Dr. Daniel Heath ( via email with the subject “Postdoc Aquatic & Invasion Ecology.” The full application will include a single PDF file consisting of:

·a cover letter describing your research interested and suitability (maximum two pages).

·a CV, including a list of your publications.

·contact details of three professional references.

Application deadline: open until filled

Start date: ASAP
