Postdoctoral Position in Evolutionary Genetics/Genomics (Microbial Metagenomics)

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Laboratory of
Professor Carol Lee in the Center of  Rapid Evolution (CORE) at the
University of Wisconsin, Madison to work on a project in collaboration
with Professor Joana Silva at the Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS).

The research focuses on the evolutionary genetics and genomics of
invasive populations. We are exploring the systematic and functional
composition of microbial communities associated with an invading
host, the copepod Eurytemora affinis, and how microbial-host
interactions shift following habitat invasions. The project will make
extensive use of microbiome and metagenome methodologies to study
the microbiota, and of transcriptome sequencing and analyses to
characterize functional and metabolic shifts within the copepod host.

Requirements for this position include a Ph.D., a strong background
in molecular biology/genomics and/or strong analytical and quantitative
skills. Relevant training and experience might include research in
genomic data analysis, evolutionary genetics, molecular genetics,
metagenomics, microbiology, or transcriptomics.

Applicants should email a CV, a list of referees, and up to three
representative publications to: Any questions
regarding this position are most welcome.

The University of Wisconsin, Madison provides an intellectually
vibrant research environment, with ~37 biology departments and ~800
biology faculty, including a strong community of evolutionary
biologists and geneticists. The University of Wisconsin is an Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
