Academic position in molecular microbial ecology at the Section for Microbiology at Aarhus University, Denmark

Applications are invited for a 24-month postdoctoral scientist position to study the distribution and cellular characteristics of Asgard archaea in Aarhus Bay sediment. The start-up for the position is as soon as possible but is negotiable.

We seek a highly motivated candidate with an academic background and documented experience in molecular microbial ecology research. Experience with fluorescence in situ hybridization techniques is preferred. The candidate should identify and localize Asgard archaea in Aarhus Bay sediments by developing and applying fluorescence in situ hybridization techniques, enrich for Asgard archaeal cells by fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS), and investigate their cellular ultrastructure using various high-resolution microscopic techniques.

The project is directed by associate professor Kasper Urup Kjeldsen and professor Andreas Schramm, and includes international collaboration with Wageningen University and Ben Gurion University of the Negev.

Who we are
The successful candidate will join a strong interdisciplinary team on a project running since 2018. The candidate will be employed by the Department of Biology at Aarhus University (http://bio.au.dk/en) and work at the Section for Microbiology at this department. The section hosts the associated centers for Electromicrobiology (CEM) and Water Technology (WATEC) and employs 9 professors with associated junior staff. Research at the section covers studies of microbial physiology, evolution, ecology, and biogeochemistry. It integrates basic and applied research addressing the role, ecophysiology and evolution of microorganisms in natural, technical and clinical systems and in biotechnology (microbiology ). The section has very well-developed laboratories and a permanent supporting staff of highly skilled laboratory technicians.

Application procedure
Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications – and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, – the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants.

Letter of reference
If you want a referee to upload a letter of reference on your behalf, please state the referee’s contact information when you submit your application. We strongly recommend that you make an agreement with the person in question before you enter the referee’s contact information, and that you ensure that the referee has enough time to write the letter of reference before the application deadline. Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure that letters of reference received after the application deadline will be taken into consideration.

Formalities and salary range
Natural Sciences refers to the Ministerial Order on the Appointment of Academic Staff at Danish Universities under the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here.

Appointment shall be in accordance with the collective labour agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities.

Salary depends on seniority as agreed between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Confederation of Professional Associations.

All interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background. Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.
