The role

A new opportunity has arisen for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work within the Cunliffe Group at the MBA. We are looking for someone to undertake research with the broad aim to better understand the roles of marine fungi in the marine carbon cycle and determine how marine fungi interact with viruses. As part of the ERC MYCO-CARB project, we have established a comprehensive culture collection of marine fungi at the MBA that is ready to be utilised for study. This role is principally laboratory-based working with marine fungal cultures but could include some local fieldwork if appropriate. We particularly seek a team player, someone who can work both independently and also with others. We expect the person in this role to be collaborative and engage well with others in the group and the wider MBA.
