Postdoc position, University of Chicago

A postdoctoral position is available in Molly Przeworski's lab at the
University of Chicago. Current work in the group focuses on the causes and
consequences of variation in recombination, as well as on a wide range
of topics in evolution and population genetics; for more information,
see The successful candidate will have
considerable latitude to design his/her project.

Applicants for the position must have a background in theoretical
population genetics or come from a quantitative field (such as
statistics or computer science) and have a demonstrated interest in
genetics and evolution. Strong programming and bioinformatics skills
are essential. Informal inquiries as well as applications (including a
CV, copies of relevant publications and two letters of recommendation)
should be emailed to Molly Przeworski at The starting
date is negotiable but could be as early as fall 2011.

The group shares space and weekly lab meetings with those of Jonathan
Pritchard and Matthew Stephens and enjoys close ties with other members
of the Human Genetics and Ecology & Evolution departments, notably Anna
Di Rienzo, Dick Hudson and Carole Ober. Moreover, it benefits from the
large and outstanding community of researchers in population genetics,
statistics and genomics at the University of Chicago.
