Postdoc in ecological genomics of speciation (USA)


A postdoctoral position is available in the Streisfeld lab at the
University of Oregon as part of a NSF-funded project to identify the
ecological genomic changes that drive the early stages of species formation
in Mimulus. The project will involve greenhouse, field, and laboratory
components that include high-throughput SNP genotyping, next generation
sequencing, QTL mapping, and field estimates of divergent selection.  The
postdoc will be involved in all aspects of the project, from data
collection to publication, and will be actively encouraged to pursue side
projects of his/her own interest.

PhD in evolutionary genetics or a related field is required. Experience
with next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics analysis is preferred.
The ideal candidate will be independent, highly motivated, productive, and
able to work effectively in a team with members from a variety of diverse
backgrounds. She/he will have an excellent understanding of experimental
design and a proven publication record.

The Streisfeld Lab ( in the Institute of Ecology
and Evolution offers a broad and interactive environment for research in
plant evolutionary biology.  We share close ties with other evolutionary
biology labs on campus, and benefit from shared facilities, such as the
genomics core research facility. The University of Oregon is an AAU
research institution located in Eugene, OR, one of the most outstanding
small cities in the US. The campus is one hour from the beautiful Oregon
