The Collier Lab is looking for a postdoctoral scholar, preferably with experience in genetic engineering of a model organism, to help develop new genome editing tools for the thraustochytrid Aurantiochytrium. Funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Experimental Model Systems initiative.
Postdoctoral Associate – 1803048
Looking for thoughtful insights about science, life, and everything? Yes, I thought so. Who isn’t?

Our Simons scholars Kylen Bao and Sarah Kelso are back to their regular lives after a busy (and hot) summer. Photo from their poster session below (left to right: Sabrina, Laura, Sarah, Jackie, Kylen, Mariana).
Meleni Sarantos will continue working with Kylie through the academic year, looking forward to science fair season with her!
Meleni Sarantos has joined the lab for the summer, working with Kylie on CCWT projects… building a database for analyzing amoA, nirS and nirK amplicon sequences, and developing column experiments to investigate microbial community dynamics.
A nifty little paper describing the unique – and really fun and productive – model of collaborative science I’ve been privileged to experience as part of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Marine Microbiology Initiative Experimental Model Systems program.

Kylen Bao and Sarah Kelso have joined the lab for 6 weeks this summer. They’ll be working with Mariana (also pictured here), Laura, and Sabrina on a thraustochytrid zoospore phototaxis project.
They will also help us do a LOT of experiments to evaluate the NEPA21 electroporator.
Since this is too late to be advertising, it’ll have to just go into the bragging-on-my-students category.
Congratulations to @KylieLanglois on presenting her beautiful and fascinating poster at #asmmicrobe2018 https://twitter.com/KylieLanglois/status/1005134046832230400 http://www.stonybrook.edu/cleanwater/ #NYSCCWT #BetterLateThanNeverNOT
Congratulations to Sabrina Geraci-Yee for winning a 2018 Sigma Xi Travel Award! @SigmaXiSociety @sabrinargy #BetterLateThanNever
Congratulations to Kylie Langlois on winning continued support as a STRIDE Fellow! @KylieLanglois @SBSTRIDE
And congratulations to Sabrina Geraci-Yee for winning second place in the poster competition at last week’s MA-ESA meeting! #MAESA18 @sabrinargy
Nobody else wanted to be in a photo with me and this interesting artwork on the Rutgers Newark campus. Thanks to Laura Halligan for taking this photo.

OK, maybe that’s not usually headline-worthy news, but in this case it’s exciting because we’ll be there all day April 7 to attend the Annual Ecological Society of America Mid-Atlantic Chapter meeting.
Kylie will be giving a talk, and Sabrina and Laura will both be presenting posters.
Jackie will mainly be enjoying the day, with a little moderating duty thrown in.
