Postdoc in sex-chromosome evolution in plants

Project Title: Evolution of sex chromosomes in plants

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work on an evolutionary
genomic project focused on sex-chromosome evolution in plants. This is
part of a collaborative project between Filatov (Oxford, UK) and Pannell
(Lausanne, Switzerland) labs. The successful candidate will initially
work for about a year in Oxford, with the possibility of continuing for
another year in Lausanne afterwards. Funding is available immediately.

The focus of this job will be on data analysis and writing up, as
extensive genomic and transcriptomic resources have already been generated
for several species with relatively young sex chromosomes. These datasets
are also suitable to address questions beyond sex-chromosome evolution
(such as adaptation and speciation), and the successful candidate will be
encouraged to do so (time permitting). Ideally, the successful candidate
will have significant bioinformatics skills and solid background in
evolutionary genetics/genomics. Programming (or scripting) skills and
familiarity with Linux environment will be quite essential for this

Informal enquiries and applications should be sent to Dmitry Filatov
Applications should include a letter of motivation, a clear indication
when the candidate would be available to start, a CV, and the names of
two people willing to provide a reference. Full consideration will be
given to all applications received before 15th July, 2012.
