Symposium begins
1:15pm – 3:10pm

The endosymbiotic microbiome in the Pisolithus fungi facilitates survival in extreme geothermal soils
A PhD scholarship is available from the University of Canterbury to investigate why a fungal species (Pisolithus tinctorius) found throughout geothermal areas in New Zealand and the US host intra-tissue (endosymbiotic) bacterial communities populated with new candidate phyla and novel deeply-branching lineages. We will use molecular, ecological and cultivation techniques to test whether the symbiotic relationship is mutually beneficial, permitting both cohorts to survive in highly-challenging and nutrient-poor geothermal soils. This investigation will expand the diversity of known microbiomes and is critical to understanding carbon and nitrogen cycling in these areas.

There is a Marsden-funded post-doc position and PhD scholarship available at University of Waikato in the lab of Dr Charles Lee. 
Please find adverts attached and note the tight timeline for the post-doc application.

We are recruiting two postdoctoral fellows for our new project on Environomics of coastal environments  at CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere in Hobart, Tasmania.


We are seeking candidates with experience in:


1) Microbial Ecology of Coastal Environments:


* Producing and analysing metagenomic and metatranscriptomic data

Course Description
The twoday Longread Data Analysis Workshop aims to introduce attendees to genome assembly using longread data. As part of this workshop participants will perform a handson comparison between short and longread microbial genome assemblies. This workshop will consist of a mixture of lectures, handson practical sessions, and open discussions.
