Research Associate in Marine Metabarcoding

A colleague and collaborator is still on the hunt for a Research Associate:

The Ecosystems & Environment Research Centre seeks to employ a suitably qualified molecular ecologist for a NERC funded research position as part of a 'Highlight Topic' consortium grant centred on the use of community metabarcoding from environmental DNA collected in a range of marine environments. 

New developments in sequencing, bioinformatics, remote sampling and ecological modelling offer the opportunity to explore and groundtruth the potential of trace DNA to characterise ecosystem structure in the ocean. The successful candidate will work in Professor Mariani's team and will engage with all other project partners in Bristol, Imperial College, the British Antarctic Survey and the Marine Biological Association. 

Check out the job ad.
