Job Ad: Macquarie University faculty positions in Synthetic Biology and Bioinformatics & More

Got this by email:

Dear Colleagues

Macquarie University is currently advertising several faculty positions in synthetic biology, bioinformatics and microbiology, if you know anyone who would be interested please encourage them to apply. The advertised positions consist of:
– 3 lvl B/C continuing faculty positions (2 in Synthetic Biology and 1 in Bioinformatics)- – 1 lvl B continuing faculty position in Microbiology-

Lvl B/C faculty positions would approximately be the equivalent of Assistant Professor level in the US system, i.e., junior faculty positions

Additionally, we have two Research Fellow positions available as part of the Yeast 2.0 synthetic biology project
( We’re particularly interested in candidates with a background in yeast genetics for these 2 positions.
Please contact me if anyone has any questions.
Yours sincerely,

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
