Postdoctoral position in honey bee sociogenomics and breeding (NC, USA)

A postdotoral researcher position is available for a US Department of
Agriculture funded project that seeks to use artificial selection and
sociogenomic approaches to study and ultimately improve honey bee traits
associated with queen reproductive quality. This project is a close
collaboration between the Linksvayer lab (
in the Department of Biology at the University of Pennsylvania and the
Tarpy lab ( in the Department of
Entomology at North Carolina State University.

We seek enthusiastic, talented, and driven individuals to carry out the
funded research project as well as to conduct related original research. We
are especially interested in candidates with experience in one or more of
the following: honey bee in vitro rearing or other organismal honey bee
research, artificial selection and instrumental insemination, RNA or genome
sequencing, evolutionary genetics, and bioinformatics. The project will
present opportunities to work at both universities to gain expertise in
these and other approaches.

The start date is flexible but can begin right away. Applications will be
considered as they are received until the position is filled. Funding is
available for multiple years, contingent on satisfactory progress. To
apply, send your CV, a short statement of research interests, contact
information for three references, and optionally a representative paper or
manuscript to Tim Linksvayer at Please contact Tim
Linksvayer or David Tarpy ( for further information.
