Closing Date: 15 March 2021
The Evolutionary and Functional Genomics Lab led by Josefa González is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our research team at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF).
The postdoctoral researcher will work on a project funded by a European Research Council Consolidator Grant that aims at identifying the genetic basis, the molecular mechanisms, and the functional traits relevant for environmental adaptation.
The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for the in silico characterization of candidate adaptive mutations identified in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster. Among others, the tasks involved in the postdoctoral research project will be to identify pathways under selection, and to analyze the expression and the epigenetic changes of genes nearby the candidate adaptive insertions.
A PhD in Populations Genetics or a related field, good programming skills, and good writing skills are required. Previous postdoctoral experience will be considered.
We offer a full-time position for 2 years with the possibility of extension. Salary will depend on the experience of the candidate.
Starting date September 2016 but alternative dates can be discussed.
Please send your CV and a brief letter of motivation before the 5th May 2016 to: email@example.com
