Un año de postdoc en Hong Kong, trabajando en proyectos centrados en genómica de aves y otros organismos no-modelo

Oferta compartida por Nuria

We are looking for Postdoctoral Researchers to work on genomics projects on non-model species (mainly birds). The lab has several study systems and active projects addressing genotype-phenotype association, comparative genomics, and population genomics. A key focus of the lab is to use genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic data to understand the genetic basis and evolution of phenotypic traits. Collaborative international projects are already underway, ensuring a quick and productive start. The Postdoctoral Researchers will have extensive opportunities to interact with collaborators and involve in different evolutionary and population genomics projects.

The initial appointment is for one year, with renewal based on performance. Funding is available for two years. This is a full time appointment.

Applicants must have completed a PhD (or will have completed a PhD before the position start) in bioinformatics, genomics, evolutionary biology, population genetics, or a related discipline, with a demonstrated record of research achievement (via publications). They will also be proficient with programming in a scripted language (e.g. Python, Perl, or R). Experience with shell scripting and computing cluster environments and/or experience working with whole genome datasets in population or comparative genomics will be beneficial.

Working Environment 
The University of Hong Kong is an English-speaking institute and one of the most international universities in Asia. It has a rank of 31 according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2023. More information about The Sin Lab can be found here.

Start Date
