Doctorado genómico en Barcelona

PhD position available on Paleaogenomics of dog population in Europe.

The Botigue lab for “Genomics of ancient crops and domestication” in
the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) in Barcelona is
offering a PhD position under the La Caixa Foundation INPhINIT Programme
to work on the genomic analysis of archaeological dog remains from
Europe spanning from the Neolithic up to the Roman Period with the goal
to understand population dynamics within the continent and gene flow
during that period.

DEADLINE
4 February 2020 (Incoming modality)
26 February 2020 (Retaining modality)

TITLE: Genomic analysis of archaeological dog remains from Europe.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The European continent has played a major role in dog domestication. A
recent genomic analysis of Neolithic dogs from Germany (Botigue et
al. 2017 Nature Communications), though revealing genetic continuity,
showed complex admixture patterns, including gene flow from a population
similar to modern Indian dogs. Additionally, studies examining
the mitochondrial genome of ancient and modern dogs have detected a
replacement in Europe that took place some time between the Neolithic and
the Middle Age. In the present project we plan to unravel this complex
demographic scenario of prehistoric European dogs by analysing the genome
of more than 30 ancient dog samples from the Iberian Peninsula and Germany
from a period of over 4,000 years spanning from the Neolithic up to the
Roman Empire. Analysis of the whole genome and the mitochondrial genome
will be performed to determine the main demographic events that shaped
dog populations during that period. Population structure and admixture
will be studied in ancient dogs in the context of modern dog variation.

As a result, we will provide for the first time insights into the genetic
structure, variability and admixture of dog populations in Europe over
a period of 4 millennia, prior the generation of breeds. Results will
elucidate demographic events surrounding dog prehistory in Europe and
their relationship with humans migrating through the continent.

JOB POSITION DESCRIPTION
The dearth and the ambition of the current project are ideal for a
PhD candidate. We are therefore looking for a highly motivated student
seeking to pursue his doctoral studies and specialise in genomics and
bioinformatics by analysing whole genome sequenced data, including that
from archaeological samples. The student will receive extensive training
in a broad range of skills, including theoretical population genetics
and biostatistics, learning concepts such as population structure,
admixture and adaptation, and recognize the footprints these processes
leave in the genome. Additionally, the student will also learn how to
model demographic inference, gaining knowledge about coalescent theory
and computational simulations. In order to analyse genomic data,
the student will learn how to use and develop bioinformatic tools.
This project is an international collaboration with researchers from
the United States and Germany, so stays abroad are granted, giving the
student a chance to meet and work with peers and learn new skills from
renowned population geneticists. Opportunities to assist international
meetings and present the research done will also be granted throughout
the PhD. The PhD will be performed in CRAG'S Plant and Animal Genomics
programme. During the first year of their studies, students receive
teaching on state-of-the art technologies offered by the Core Units
and Scientific Services of CRAG, such as genomics and next generation
sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics. The student
will also be able to attend internal and external seminars at CRAG and
improve her oratory skills by giving seminars regularly. By the end of
the PhD, the student will have become a population geneticist specialised
in the analysis of modern and ancient genomes with a strong computational
background and a wide network of peers.

REQUIREMENTS
The doctoral fellowship programme INPhINIT “la Caixa” is devoted to
attracting talented Early-Stage Researchers—of any nationality—who
wish to pursue doctoral studies in Spanish or Portuguese territory.

The doctoral INPhINIT fellowships offer a highly competitive salary
and complementary opportunities for training on transferrable skills
(through the collaboration of leading entities such as Vitae and Oxentia),
temporary stays in industry, incentives upon completion of the thesis,
among other elements that make these fellowships some of the most
attractive and complete in Europe.

Postdoc genómico muy interesante en Brasil

Come work with us in a postdoc involving Brazilian dry and humid forests, genomics and adaptation in a project involving fantastic Brazilian and US collaborators at Unicamp, Usp, Ufscar, Unifesp,
Harvard, Cornell, AMNH, OSU and VSU!

Please see additional details here:
http://www.fapesp.br/oportunidades/adaptacao_na_diagnonal_seca_brasileira_ligando_genomas_e_fenotipos/3319/?fbclid=IwAR0AhopxBOV0iihO5orzSPDhGz0ag-Mi5Rvg2GdXqZLxNyaYDD1OsJ3IGw4

Summary

This post-doc fellowship focus on exploring genomes and phenotypes of
birds and cacti from the so-called Dry Diagonal area in South America.
The selected candidate will work at the Federal University of São
Paulo in Diadema (São Paulo State, Brazil) where he/she will develop a
research project linked to the Dry Diagonal Dimensions Project, which
is conducted jointly by the Biology Institute of the University of
Campinas (UNICAMP, Brazil) and Harvard University (US) – such
collaboration is under the aegis of an agreement between the São Paulo
Research Foundation (FAPESP) and National Science Foundation (NSF)
through their respective programs BIOTA and Dimensions of Diversity.

Adaptation is a central process in evolution, and ecologically diverse
groups of species offer opportunities to study adaptive evolution in
many levels of biological organization. The Dry Diagonal Dimensions
Project will use different types of data in order to understand how
adaptation contributes to phenotypic, genomic, and phylogenetic
diversification in dry vegetation and neighboring humid forests.
Species from neotropical birds to cacti offer exciting examples of
groups of closely related species occupying dry/open and humid forest,
including cases involving species from Caatinga, Cerrado, Amazonia,
and Atlantic Forest biomes. Those species complexes offer
opportunities to explore the genomics of adaptation. Recent advances
in sequencing technology facilitate the task of interrogating hundreds
– or even thousands – of loci potentially related to phenotypic
variation using both genomes and transcriptomes.

The selected researcher will:

- Collect and process samples of birds and cacti, and occasionally
trait data;
- Perform sequence capture of candidate genes and sequence complete
genomes and transcriptomes;
- Perform bioinformatics, genome and trait evolution analyses;
- Write scientific reports and manuscripts.

This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. The
selected candidate will receive a FAPESP’s Post-Doctoral fellowship in
the amount of R$ 7,373.10 monthly and a research contingency fund,
equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should
be spent in items directly related to the research activity.

Postdoc en patología de mamíferos marinos

OUR MISSION

The Marine Mammal Center advances global conservation through marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation, scientific research, and education.




WHAT MOTIVATES OUR WORK

The ocean is in trouble. From the depletion of fish stocks to increasing ocean temperatures, human activity threatens marine ecosystems that are vital to the health of our ocean and all life on earth. As a critical first responder to these threats, The Marine Mammal Center is leading the field in ocean conservation through marine mammal rescue, veterinary medicine, science, and education. Marine mammals are ecosystem indicators, and these animals provide insights into human and ocean health threats. Together, we are taking action today to support a network of scientists and stewards to protect our shared ocean environment for future generations.




To advance our mission, we focus our work in three key program areas:
Animal Care: With a volunteer force numbering more than 1,200 and the support of a concerned public, the Center is able to respond to marine mammals in distress. Sick and injured animals are treated and rehabilitated at our state-of-the-art veterinary facilities where we care for our patients until they can be released back to their ocean home. Covering a rescue range that spans 600 miles of California coastline and the Big Island of Hawai‘i, the Center responds to more stranded marine mammals than any other organization in the world. Our sought-after experts are deployed locally and internationally to provide technical veterinary expertise and training on best practices ranging from anesthesia to disentanglement.
Scientific Research: The Center is a major contributor to the global body of research and knowledge about marine mammal medicine and health. Our veterinary experts develop new clinical techniques to improve marine mammal rehabilitation and care, and investigate the reasons why marine mammals strand and how these factors are connected to ecosystem and human health. Our scientists also investigate how marine mammals use and interact with their ocean environment to better understand and protect them from many threats. Learning from every animal we respond to and studying animals in the wild, our researchers identify novel diseases and pathogens, support endangered and threatened species conservation, identify and help mitigate human-caused threats and partner with scientists around the world on collaborative research that utilizes samples and data collected by the Center. Marine mammal health, ocean health and human health are inextricably linked, and our work advances knowledge of all three to benefit us all.
Education: As a teaching hospital, the Center serves as a vital training ground for veterinary professionals from across the globe, expanding the collective understanding and application of marine veterinary science and conservation. Our innovative school and public education programs build a sense of responsibility through a connection to marine mammals and the marine environment, inspiring future ocean stewards and promoting action to protect the ocean. Each year, these education programs and hands-on trainings reach more than 100,000 children and adults, supporting the next generation of informed scientists and engaged citizens who will care for and ensure the health of our ocean and environment.




ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

The Marine Mammal Center was founded in 1975 by three local citizens: Lloyd Smalley, Pat Arrigoni and Paul Maxwell. Since then, and thanks to their vision, the Center is now a global leader in marine mammal health, science and conservation and is the largest marine mammal hospital in the world. The Center operates physical locations in Sausalito, Morro Bay and Moss Landing, CA, as well as in Kona, Hawai‘i, and has an annual operating budget of $11.5M. A team of 80 staff and 1,200 actively engaged volunteers make the Center’s impact possible and keep the Center operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
