Posdoctoral Fellow

A post-doctoral fellow is required to work on a Functional Genomics project for the red tide dinoflagellate Karenia brevis.
The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at
University of Miami is one of five recipients for NIH/NSF Center for Ocean and Human Health (COHH). One of project supported by COHH is to develop ESTs (short cDNA sequences) for Karenia brevis. These EST will be used to manufacture microarrays to measure many if not all genes expressed in
Karenia. In collaboration with a biological oceanographer, we are going to investigate patterns of gene expression (microarrays) and how gene expression relates to genetic divergence and ecological setting.
This project is funded for 5 years, but more importantly would
allow a young investigator to build a foundation for future research on Karenia because she/he would have the molecular tools (EST collection, microarrays, etc), experimental protocols and bioinformatics to explore Functional genomics in Karenia.
