Over two years, and potentially longer, the postdoc would work with a large, multi-country, multi-institution team to lead efforts to understand the contribution of fermentation to pre-agricultural and early agricultural societies. This work will be done in the context of a framework in which fermentation microorganisms are viewed to be part of the “extended hologenome” of the host. The project will include a variety of components, some or all of which the postdoc can lead, depending on interests, skills, and time. This work is part of a broader effort at the Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics to understand the role that the use of microbes to ferment foods by humans has played in extending the hologenome of humans and, with it, the functions of the hologenome. More broadly, the center considers the big story of all of life from the hologenomic perspective and using the tools of hologenomics.
