Postdoctoral Fellow

The Hermance laboratory in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of South Alabama is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to lead multiple aspects of core laboratory projects examining tick-virus-host interactions. Essential job duties will include planning and executing laboratory experiments or projects related to: tick vector competency, intra-tick infection biology, and skin immunology at the tick feeding site. These projects involve tick-borne flaviviruses and bandaviruses, several of which must be manipulated within Biosafety Level-3 facilities. While experience working with ticks and/or virus is preferred, these skills are not required. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the training/mentoring of graduate student researchers and research technologists, and should therefore be capable of working both independently and as part of a team. The individual will be expected to uphold a collaborative environment and possess strong verbal/written communication and organizational skills. Required qualifications: Ph.D. and research experience in microbiology, virology, immunology, vector biology, medical entomology, or a related field. To apply, please submit a CV, a letter (1 page or less) summarizing research interests and goals, and the contact information for three references to Meghan Hermance, Ph.D. at

Postdoctoral Researcher – Small Community/Decentralized Wastewater Systems

Job Type:  Post-Doc
Job Rank:  Postdoctoral Researcher
Job Institution:   University of South Alabama, Department of Civil, Coastal, & Environmental Engineering

Job Description:
The Department of Civil, Coastal, & Environmental Engineering at the University of South Alabama invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher position for in the area of Small Community/Decentralized Wastewater Systems.  The postdoctoral scholar will work on a multi-university team funded by the prestigious Columbia World Projects endowment looking to evaluate and demonstrate decentralized wastewater models (financial, technological, management entity, etc.) for small/rural community viability.    The project is also looking to develop data and tools that allow an exploration of the financial and technical applicability of decentralized wastewater collection/treatment/reuse systems as a function of scale. We see this as the direction for the future in both rural and urban environments. The candidate of interest would have skills in decentralized wastewater system technologies, network optimization, financial analysis, smart systems, sensors & control, and be adept in spatio-temporal data analytics.  We are seeking an independent researcher with good communication skills (to interact with academic partners and local communities) and an ability to work on a highly collaborative team.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S. The University of South Alabama is an EO/AA Employer – minorities/females/veterans/disabilities/sexual orientation/gender identity
