Biological Scientist I 60190000 - AG-PLANT PATHOLOGY St. Lucie
The Biological Scientist I (entry level) position will assist in ongoing research studying the metabolism, growth, and adaptation of Earth bacteria to simulated Martian conditions and the survival of bacteria under biocidal interplanetary space conditions. This position is a grant funded, time limited position beginning May 1, 2020, and anticipated to last three years subject to funding. This position is located at the Life Sciences Lab adjacent to the Kennedy Space Center. Mars Astrobiology Research: The search for life on Mars will be enhanced by characterizing the limits of growth of terrestrial microorganisms under simulated Martian conditions. We have successfully grown bacteria under Martian conditions at 7 mbar, 0oC, and CO2-enriched hypoxic atmospheres [see Schuerger et al. (2013), Astrobiology 13(2), 115-131; and Schuerger and Nicholson, (2016), Astrobiology, 16(2), 964-976]. Ongoing experiments have identified a total of 31 hypopiezotolerant bacteria (i.e., bacteria that tolerate low-pressures) from diverse soils including Siberian permafrost, Arctic soils, and alpine soils. Future research will focus on characterizing the limits of growth for the hypopiezotolerant bacteria under increasingly complex simulations of the harsh Martian surface. Microbial Survival in Interplanetary Space: All planetary spacecraft spend some portion of their missions cruising through interplanetary space exposed to harsh conditions of low pressure, dramatic high/low temperature fluctuations, extreme desiccation, high solar UV irradiation, and ionizing radiation. Future research will characterize the synergistic effects of high vacuum, solar heating, solar UV irradiation, and ionizing radiation on the survival of bacteria that might be adhered to spacecraft surfaces.
