Position Description

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Robin Hopkins, in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University. The Hopkins lab conducts research on plant speciation and processes of local adaptation. Major areas of research include determining the genetic basis of reproductive isolating mechanisms, understanding the role of natural selection in speciation, investigating the role of pollinators in plant speciation and adaption, and using population genetics to untangling the forces of gene flow and selection during local adaptation.

This opening is for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with expertise in some of the following areas: genetics, genomics, population genetics, molecular biology, quantitative genetics, plant research, field research. All candidates must have received a Ph.D. in a relevant field. The postdoc will be based at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University and have access to all the resources available through the Organismic and Evolutionary Department. The position is available for 1 year with the possibility of renewal for a second and third year, and will include a competitive salary and full benefits.

Interested candidates please contact Robin Hopkins at Applications should include: a cover letter, a brief description of past research accomplishments and future research goals, CV, and contact information for three references.

Basic Qualifications

Ph.D. in biology, plant biology, genetics, evolutionary biology or a closely related field
