Post-graduate Opportunities
Environmental Sciences Division
Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The Environmental Sciences Division (ESD) at Oak Ridge National 
Laboratory (ORNL) has immediate openings for one or more post-graduate 
research associates to support ongoing projects in microbial ecology, 
microbial physiology, and modeling of microbial communities.

ESD assembles interdisciplinary teams focusing on understanding 
processes that drive the Earth's environmental and ecological systems. 
ESD scientists conduct research, develop tech-nology, and perform 
analyses to understand Earth's systems. By expanding scientific 
knowledge and developing technological solutions, we strengthen the 
nation's leadership in addressing important environmental solutions.

Fellowship opportunities currently exist in our Microbial 
Biogeochemistry and Biotechnology focus area. Investigations of 
microbial processes at the ecosystem, population, organism, and gene 
function levels are emphasized with a focus on harnessing the 
capabilities of microbial systems to address challenges in environmental 
remediation, synthesis of bioproducts, carbon sequestration and other 

For information on ESD projects, see: 

The successful fellowship candidate must have:
--graduate degree within the last five years in microbiology or 
microbial ecology
--experience or education in molecular microbiology and individual-based 
modeling to study the dynamics of microbial biofilm communities

This fellowship provides the successful candidate
--opportunities to interact with leading researchers in environmental 
sciences, ecology, computer sciences, earth sciences, and biogeochemistry
--experience at one of the premiere national laboratories

Applicants should send a letter of interest, current vitae, statement of 
research interests and goals, copies of transcripts, and names of three 
references to:
