Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Microbial Ecology, HIE Western Sydney University

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will focus on research related to understanding of fundamental processes involved in microbial colonisation of new environments (plant and soil) and how these processes are impacted by biotic and abiotic stressors. The overall project seeks to identify (a) eco-evolutionary processes that govern microbial colonisation, and (b) impact of disturbances on the rate of colonisation and the functional consequences at habitat and ecosystem scales.
