We are seeking an outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow to carry out research for a new project (Population genomics in Norway and Ship rat populations in Aotearoa). This project is funded by Predator Free 2050, to develop genomic datasets that allow an understanding of gene flow in Norway and Ship rat populations in Aotearoa. This project will be carried out as part of a broader PF 2050 project, investigating the application of genetic-based control methods to eradicate rat populations in Aotearoa.

We welcome applications from postdoctoral candidates who have experience in molecular biology, evolutionary and population genetics/genomics, and bioinformatics.

To be successful in this role you will be highly self-motivated and be able to work alongside a wide variety of people. In addition, you will have a strong commitment to research excellence with a track record of high research productivity based on international, peer-reviewed publications commensurate for career stage.

The Department makes major contributions to the undergraduate and postgraduate education of students in science, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physiotherapy, medical laboratory sciences, and physical education. Its research activities fall within four interdisciplinary programmes encompassing: biological anthropology; clinical anatomy; neuroscience; reproduction, genomics and development.

This is a full-time, fixed term position for two years (1 July 2022 - 30 June 2024).
