Postdoctoral Research Associate in Evolutionary Genomics of Bdelloid Rotifers
Department of Life Sciences, Imperial College London, United Kingdom.
Salary: GBP 33,410 - GBP 42,380 per annum 
(maximum starting salary GBP 35,190 per annum)
Closing date: 24 April 2015 (midnight BST)
This is an exciting opportunity for a Research Associate with interests in speciation and evolution. 
The successful candidate will carry out cutting edge research on the genetic mechanisms of ecological 
speciation in a well-known group of anciently asexual animals, the bdelloid rotifers. You will sequence
whole genomes for related bdelloid species living in different habitats and use population genomic
analyses to test alternative mechanisms behind their divergence. The work will involve bioinformatics,
statistical methods in population genomics and computer models. You will work closely with a Research
Technician who will conduct molecular labwork.
The position is funded for up to 3 years by the Natural Environment Research Council and will be based 
at the Silwood Park Campus.  The successful candidates will work closely with Professor Tim Barraclough
and his research group.
You must have a PhD or equivalent qualification in evolution, ecology, genetics or a closely related 
discipline, and one or more first author (or joint first author) publications.  The successful candidate
will have expertise in population genomics and/or statistics and modelling with a strong interest in
evolutionary biology. Experience of bioinformatics including scripting and/or programming is essential. 
While not essential, experience of handling and archiving large datasets and experience of genome
assembly and/or population genomics analysis, would be an advantage.
You must have experience of working in a team, be able to develop and apply new concepts and have 
a creative approach to problem-solving.  You must also have excellent verbal and written communication
skills and be able to write clearly and succinctly for publication.
