    Forest Microbial Ecology & Evolution

    The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI; ) seeks to hire a staff scientist to pursue an independent, internationally recognized research program in forest microbial ecology and evolution.

    The position is funded by generous support from the Simons Foundation. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated commitment to world-class science that includes publication in international peer-reviewed literature and will enhance and complement existing strengths in our research institute.

    Research interests in forest microbial ecology may include plant-soil-microbial interactions, the role of microbes in biogeochemical and / or carbon cycling, plant pathogen dynamics, and microbial responses to global change, among others.

    Familiarity with both traditional culturing and next-generation sequencing methods and other tools for studying microbial communities is highly desirable.

    Previous tropical experience is not required.

    The position is full-time research. A fully equipped microbial laboratory is available and funds are provided for additional laboratory setup costs and on-going research, including postdoctoral and technical support staff, supplies, and travel expenses.

    Staff scientists may also compete for additional intramural and external research funds. Opportunities are available to mentor post-doctoral fellows, students, and interns who are drawn from an international community, to teach in graduate training programs with affiliated universities, and to conduct outreach to local and international audiences.

    STRI is headquartered in the Republic of Panama, with modern research and laboratory facilities, a library with extensive holdings in the natural and anthropological sciences, and terrestrial and marine field stations throughout the country.

    Panama and adjacent regions of tropical America present abundant opportunities to study microbial communities across experimental and natural gradients of climate and soil fertility.

    The Forest Global Earth Observatory (ForestGEO) maintains a series of long-term forest dynamics plots across multiple environmental gradients, and STRI’s Agua Salud site supports a secondary forest dynamics monitoring network and experimental plantations.

    STRI has a vibrant and collaborative scientific community of 37 staff scientists and hosts over 1200 scientific visitors per year, including fellows and interns supported through an intramural program.

    Staff scientists maintain diverse research programs in the ecology, evolution, physiology, development, and behavior of marine and terrestrial organisms and ecosystems, both ancient and modern, and the role of human interactions in shaping tropical environments.

    Strong interdisciplinary links between our scientists and the broader Smithsonian community provide excellent opportunities for addressing large-scale long-term research questions that are not possible elsewhere.

    STRI does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service, or other non-merit factor.

    We are an Equal Opportunity employer, committed to diversity in its work-force.
