Department Civil and Environmental Engineering Full Time/Part Time Full-Time Requisition Number P21020 Open Date 10/19/2020 Close Date Benefits Eligible Yes Position Summary

The Alvarez Lab (https: // alvarez.rice.edu/) and the Stadler Lab (stadler.rice.edu) at Rice University invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher position in the field of bioinformatics and microbial ecological network modeling using multi-omics datasets. The postdoctoral scholar will work on a National Alliance for Water Innovation (NAWI)-funded project focused on understanding membrane biofouling with unprecedented resolution (e.g., the transition from innocuous to detrimental biofilm) and mitigating biofouling in water treatment systems. The ideal candidate will have experience working with bioinformatics using omics datasets, including metagenome assembly, functional analysis (annotation, statistical analysis, and phylogenetics) and network analysis. In addition, the candidate will facilitate the setup and sampling of a testbed pilot reverse osmosis (RO) system that will be used to generate samples for analysis. We are looking for a creative, independent scientist who can work and communicate effectively in a collaborative environment.

We are seeking candidates who have demonstrated ability to lead and/or work collaboratively in teams comprised of individuals of diverse backgrounds, skills, and perspectives.

We seek greater representation of women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans in disciplines in which they have historically been underrepresented; to attract international students from a wider range of countries and backgrounds; to accelerate progress in building a faculty and staff who are diverse in background and thought; and we support an inclusive environment that fosters interaction and understanding within our diverse community.

The George R. Brown School of Engineering ranks among the top 20 of undergraduate engineering programs (US News & World Report) and is strongly committed to nurturing the aspirations of faculty, staff and students in an inclusive environment.

Rice University is an Equal Opportunity Employer with commitment to diversity at all levels and considers for employment qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, genetic information, disability, or protected veteran status.
