Postdoc in modeling the evolution of Microbial Metabolisms

A postdoctoral position is available in the Litchman and Klausmeier labs at Michigan State University. The postdoc will participate in a NASA Exobiology funded project in collaboration with researchers from France and Germany on modeling the evolutionary emergence of diverse microbial metabolisms.

We are looking for a quantitative modeler who uses cellular metabolic models such as Flux Balance Analysis, Elementary Flux Mode Analysis and others to interface them with the models of ecological interactions. Experience with eco-evolutionary modeling would be advantageous and the manuscript writing skills and previous publications in metabolic modeling are essential.

The position is for one year initially, renewable depending on performance and continued funding. Application review will begin September 15, 2019. Start date is as soon as possible.
