The Opportunity

We seek a talented and highly-motivated Postdoctoral Researcher with strong quantitative and computational skills for a Human Frontiers Science Program funded project. Caenorhabditis is a genus of nematodes which live in bacteria-rich environments like compost piles, decaying dead animals and rotting fruit. This position will be responsible for conducting research by examining convergence in the genetic basis of behaviour across three species of Caenorhabditis. Opportunities will be available for you to develop and pursue your own research interests within the bounds of the advertised project and mentor undergraduate and graduate students.

We are seeking someone who has a PhD in genetics or evolutionary biology with a demonstrated strong publication record in top-tier journals and a strong background in bioinformatics. You must also be experienced in comparative genomics and/or genome wide association studies.
