18 – 21 June 2018

Kasetsart University, Bangkok
Computational biology is the new skill set for understanding agricultural systems. We empower you with a hands-on workshop that blends theory and bioinformatics practicals for 21st century skills.

Join us for another round of JAMS microbiology seminars at Harpoon Harry, from 5:45pm, Tuesday 24th April 2018.
Our speakers for the night are:
6:00pm Vanessa Pirotta – Macquarie University
Microbes, whale snot and ecosystem health
6:20pm Melanie Duncan – University of Sydney
“Loss of actin-based motility impairs Ectromelia virus release in vitro but is not critical to spread in vivo”
7:00pm Silas Vick – Macquarie University
“Life on coal: deciphering the microbial ecology of coal seam microbiomes”

The “Imaging and Flow Cytometry Technical Seminars” are taking place in Sydney on Tuesday, 17th April at Building 75, Department of Biomedical Sciences, Macquarie University, Sydney.
Join us for a series of half-day seminars as we host both international and local scientists to reveal the most recent advances in cell imaging and flow cytometry. Learn more about applications, including biomarker profiling and rare event identification. 

Backed by our significant investment in R&D, we’re committed to providing the best-performing tools and solutions to accelerate discovery with simplified workflows so you can reach your research goals faster with fewer challenges.



The JAMS 7th Annual Symposium is less than one week away! If you have registered for attendance you will receive the Symposium Program on Monday 19 March 2018, however for a quick overview of our annual event see below:
12:00pm – 12:30pm
Symposium begins
1:15pm – 3:10pm
Mike Manefield, University of New South Wales, Australia
"Microbiology as a foundation for ecosystem engineering"
Caroline Chénard, NTU, Singapore
"Understanding viral activity and dynamics are fundamental questions in aquatic microbial ecology"

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
