Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in Evolutionary Genomics in the School of Biological Sciences (Ref.: 504670), to commence in 2021 for one year, with the possibility of renewal for one year, subject to satisfactory performance and funding availability.

Applicants should possess a Ph.D. degree or be expected to complete a Ph.D. degree before commencement date in Bioinformatics, Genomics, Evolutionary Biology, Population Genetics, or a related discipline, with a demonstrated record of research achievement. They should also be proficient at programming in a scripted language (e.g. Python, Perl, or R). Those with experience in shell scripting and computing cluster environments and/or experience in working with whole genome datasets in population or comparative genomics would be highly preferrable.

The appointee will work on genomics projects on non-model species in a laboratory which has several study systems and active projects addressing genotype-phenotype association, comparative genomics, population genomics, and behavioural genetics. A key focus of the laboratory is to use genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic data to understand the genetic basis and evolution of phenotypic traits. The appointee will determine the genetic basis of alternative reproductive strategies in a non-model species. Data is readily available to ensure a quick and productive start. He/She will also have extensive opportunities to interact with collaborators and be involved in different evolutionary and ecological genomics projects.

A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits. At current rates, salaries tax does not exceed 15% of gross income.

The University only accepts online application for the above post. Applicants should apply online and upload an up-to-date C.V. with the contact information of three referees, cover letter and a statement of research interests and skills. Review of applications will commence as soon as possible and continue until September 30, 2021 , or until the post is filled, whichever is earlier.
