Wild Bee Microbial Ecology and Landscape Genomics Postdoc

The Rehan Lab (www.rehanlab.com) is hiring a postdoc to study landscape genomics and microbial ecology of wild bees. The candidates will join a collaborative group of researchers, staff, and students focusing on bee health, behaviour, and conservation. We are located at York University in Toronto, Canada.

This position will examine metagenomics of wild bees to determine their dietary breadth and microbial ecology across landscapes. The successful candidate will have technical expertise in molecular biology and bioinformatics. Writing and analytical skills as well as familiarity with microbiome and genomic data are highly desirable.

York University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages applications from women and underrepresented groups. If interested, please send a CV, names of three references, and a short statement of interests to Sandra Rehan (sanrehan@yorku.ca). The postdoctoral  position is available for one year (starting as soon as October 2020 and as late as January 2021) and renewable up to three years with successful progress and performance.
