Hi all! We’ve only got a handful of articles for you today. Rather than focus on any one paper, I wanted to highlight the two faculty position postings linked below.
The first is a position to study host-associated microbiomes in a ‘wild’ context at the University of Calgary. The successful applicant would be joining an incredible group of microbiome researchers at the University of Calgary and would be well positioned to leverage the newly created ‘International Microbiome Centre’ (https://imc.ucalgary.ca/).
The second position is a tenure-track position for research on plant-microbe interactions. Again, seems like a good chance to join a great community of researchers in state-of-the-art facilities.
