Bioinformatics postdoctoral position at the Evolutionary and Functional Genomics LAB.

The Evolutionary and Functional Genomics Lab led by Josefa González is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our research team at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF). The postdoctoral researcher will work on a project funded by a European Research Council Consolidator Grant that aims at identifying the genetic basis, the molecular mechanisms, and the functional traits relevant for environmental adaptation.

The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for the identification and the in silico analyses of the candidate adaptive mutations. The tasks involved in the postdoctoral research project are: implementation of pipelines to detect de novo transposable element insertions in genomes, searching for evidence of selection at the DNA level (e.g. Fst, iHS, nSL, H12), and performing environmental association studies.

A PhD in Populations Genetics or a related field, good programming skills, and good writing skills are required. Previous postdoctoral experience will be considered.

We offer a full-time position for 2 years with the possibility of extension. Salary will depend on the experience of the candidate.

Starting date October 2017 but alternative dates can be discussed.


Please send your CV before the 31st July 2017 to:
