You will work as part of a team investigating the genomic basis of
phenotypic variation in the tree genus Populus (with particular
reference to adaptive and wood traits), You will have an important
role in the generation of whole genome sequences of multiple poplar
species in conjunction with the Genome Sciences Centre, Vancouver, and
will be responsible for between-species comparative analysis of
genomes in a phylogenetic context, including the detection of
adaptively significant variation. The position represents a superb
opportunity to work at the leading edge of comparative evolutionary
genomics and your work will underpin a major tree biology project. You
will have a PhD and previous experience in the genomics of a plant or
animal system. Familiarity with one or more of the following would be
an advantage: comparative genomics, phylogenetic analysis, selection
detection algorithms, genome evolution, next generation sequencing
methods, programming for bioinfomatics.
