We (https://kleinerlab.cals.ncsu.edu/) are looking to hire a postdoc to apply cutting-edge cultivation-based and cultivation-independent methods to study functional interactions in the corn-root associated microbiome.
One of the focus areas of this position will be:
Species and mechanisms underlying microbe-dependent heterosis (MDH) in corn (https://www.pnas.org/content/118/30/e2021965118).
Details and application link can be found here https://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/167552
Metaproteomics will be one of the key approaches used and can be taught by the laboratory if other needed qualifications are present.
If you are at ISME 18 in Lausanne, I am happy to meet and talk about the job. Contact me at email@example.com
