Postdoc filogenómico en el Museo de Historia Natural de Estocolmo

Postdoctoral position in phylogenomics

A two-year postdoctoral position is available in the Department of
Zoology, Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm. The position is
supervised by Prof. Ulf Jondelius, as a part of the project "Evolution
of Xenacoelomorpha, an ancient animal group " funded by the Swedish
Reseach Council. The goal of this project is to perform an analysis of
phylogeny, evolutionary rates and gene content of the marine animal group
Xenacoelomorpha using transcriptomic and genomic data. The successful
candidate will manage and analyse transcriptome and genome sequencing
data, perform phylogenomic analyses and write papers. There will be
opportunities to participate in undergraduate teaching and supervision
of students.

Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of
research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree
or an equivalent degree from another country. The degree should
have been completed no more than three years before the deadline

primarily dry-lab skills in the fields of genomics, transcriptomics
and phylogenomics including experience with managing, processing and
analysing next-generation sequencing data. Specific experience with
metazoan evolution and microscopic invertebrates constitutes an advantage,
but is not strictly necessary. The candidate must be highly motivated,
creatively thinking with a collaborative attitude, have strong writing
skills and a record of high-quality scientific publications. Excellent
English language skills both written and spoken, are a requisite.

History strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with
equal opportunities for all.
