|Postdoctoral Associate, Duke Marine Lab, Beaufort, NC||Duke Marine Lab||
The Hunt lab at Duke University’s Marine Laboratory (http://oceanography.ml.duke.edu/hunt/) is hiring a postdoctoral associate in the area of bacterial-phytoplankton interactions focusing on heterotrophic bacteria. The postdoctoral associate will be mentored by Dr. Dana Hunt but the project involves extensive collaborative with the Rynearson lab at the University of Rhode Island (http://www.gso.uri.edu/users/rynearson). Responsibilities and Duties: The postdoctoral associate will be primarily responsible for analysis of the gene expression component of the project and will be working with high-throughput transcriptomic data and physiological data to tease apart diatom-bacteria interactions. Additionally, the postdoctoral associate will develop novel methods for examining small-scale spatial interactions between these organisms. While largely lab-based, there will also be opportunities for fieldwork examining interactions in uncultured organisms as part of the Pivers’ Island Coastal Observatory (PICO) time series. Responsibilities include dissemination of results in publications and presentations, contributions to the functioning of the lab, and assistance with graduate and undergraduate student mentoring.

|Postdoctoral Associate, Molecular Physiology||Duke Molecular Physiology Institute||
The Duke University School of Medicine has a position available for a Postdoctoral Associate to conduct basic and translational research to identify the diagnostic and prognostic/predictive biomarkers associated with the development of prostate cancer from circulating tumor cells. The Postdoctoral Associate will be required to become acquainted with the epidemiology and etiology and treatments of the disease so as to use genomic approaches, namely copy number (array CGH) and sequence variation (exome sequencing), to understand the mechanism of disease development, treatment response, and progression.
The Postdoctoral Associate will be housed at the new Duke Molecular Physiology Institute under the supervision of Dr. Gregory, but they will also be co-mentored by Dr. Armstrong.
