Postdoctoral position in Evolutionary Systems Biology

Vetsigian lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking
Postdoctoral Associates in the area of Microbial Evolution. The Lab is
part of the Systems Biology Theme at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery
and the Department of Bacteriology. It focuses on experimental and
theoretical approaches to studying microbial evolution in a community
setting. We are developing methods for quantifying microbial interactions
in a high-throughput fashion, and use them to characterize interactions in
co-evolved natural communities and track their evolution in laboratory
microbial communities.

We are looking for two types of candidates:

1) Ph.D in microbiology or a related filed. Previous experience with any
of the following is a plus but not required: microbial ecology,
actinomycetes, secondary-metabolism, next gen sequencing, microfluidics,

2) Strong quantitative background and a record of accomplishments in the
areas of complex systems, bioinformatics and/or evolutionary biology.
Previous work on biological questions or laboratory experience are a plus
but not required. In fact, the lab offers an ideal opportunity for
ambitious candidates with a theoretical background to learn experimental

The postdoctoral positions will prepare candidates for a career in the
rapidly expanding fields of Systems Biology, Microbial Ecology and
Genomics. The specific research projects will be based on the candidate零
experience and interests. The positions are for two years with the
potential for extension upon satisfactory performance. Start day is

To apply, please send one document that includes a cover letter, CV and
statement of research accomplishments to Also,
arrange for 3 letters of recommendation to be e-mailed directly to the
