Job Summary

The PDRA's specific focus will be to identify biotic and abiotic factors impacting the presence and concentration of opportunistic pathogens within the drinking water microbiome. This will involve analyzing drinking water samples using primarily culture-independent approaches (e.g., flow cytometry, digital PCR, amplicon sequencing, metagenomics) and associated data analyses including bioinformatics, statistical modeling, and machine learning. The PDRA is expected to be highly collaborative and work with multiple researchers focused on complementary aspects of the proposal including microbial culturing, genome-resolved metagenomics, disinfection byproduct analysis, non- targeted mass spectrometry, and chemical/microbial risk analysis. The PDRA will have the opportunity to take on the role of mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and also contribute to and benefit from several ongoing research projects in the Pinto Research Group.
