Position Title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Environmental Microbiome

Academic Level: Level A fixed term (2 years)

School/Office: Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE)

College/Division: Research, Engagement, Development and International (REDI) Division

The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment at Western Sydney University is seeking to appoint a dynamic researcher to a Level A position. This full-time Postdoctoral Fellowship, initially for two years, will focus on research related to environmental microbiology (plant, soil and water) microbiomes and their response to biotic and abiotic stressors. The overall project seeks to identify (a) the linkage of plant and soil microbiomes to plant physiological conditions, crop productivity and soil health, and (b) the response of soil and water microbiomes to chemical stress.

The successful applicant will conduct research examining how management practices impact the environmental microbiome and consequences for plant productivity and environmental quality. The project will use a range of analytical procedures including state-of-the-art next-generation sequencing, and environmental (soil and water) and plant health measures to characterise how these variables impact microbiomes and their activities. The successful applicant will have expertise in the broad areas of microbiomes and be able to analyse data from next-generation (amplicon and shotgun) sequencing. Statistical skills for analysing microbiome data are highly desirable, but relevant training will be provided to candidates with excellence in other areas of the project. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in training relevant to the position and communicate the findings of the project via journal publications and presentations at scientific conferences and to non-scientific audiences.
