Oferta postdoctoral en Suiza: Molecular Evolution

A two-year postdoctoral fellowship in molecular evolution is available in the laboratory of Andreas Wagner at the University of Zurich. Applications will be considered from candidates with theoretical, computational, or experimental background. The Wagner lab at the University of Zurich studies biological evolution on all levels of organization, from genes, genomes, and genetic networks to whole organisms. Ongoing projects range from laboratory evolution experiments in yeast to human population genomics. A sample of our research can be found at http://www.bioc.uzh.ch/wagner/. Lab members are a group with very diverse backgrounds and research projects, unified by their interests in evolution and /or fundamental organizational principles of life.
We are looking for an individual who has received his or her PhD within the last five years, who is highly self-motivated and can work independently. A successful candidate for an experimental project will have substantial research experience with molecular biological techniques, acquired in research projects with an evolutionary orientation. A successful candidate for a computational project will have a strong background in bioinformatics and computational biology. Applications without a demonstrated interest and research history in evolutionary biology will not be considered further.
The working language in the laboratory is English. German skills, although helpful, are not essential.
Zurich is a highly attractive city in beautiful surroundings, with a multinational population, and many educational and recreational opportunities.
To be considered, please send a single (!) PDF file merged from the following parts to jobs_aw@bioc.uzh.ch: CV including publication list, a statement of research interests not exceeding three pages, as well as three academic references. Please include the word "MOLEVOL" in the subject line. The application deadline is April 28, 2008. The position is available immediately.
