Position Summary This long-term agricultural microbiome research project is aimed at characterizing leaf, stem and root microbiomes of crops in a wheat-maize-soy rotation under three production systems: conventional, organic, and no-till. Through this project we are generating a long-term longitudinal dataset on fungal, bacterial and oomycete communities. The research associate will use these data to assess microbiome dynamics specific to plant tissues, growth stages, management regimes, crops and time. Hypotheses will be tested through experimental constructed microbial community studies using isolates in a culture library obtained from the KBS research sites. Timely interpretation of data, presentation, and publication of data is expected. Equal Employment Opportunit
