Berne, Switzerland: One postdoc, two PhD, population genomics PDF Tisk Email
The CMPG lab (http://cmpg.iee.unibe.ch) at the University of Berne is
opening 2 new PhD and 1 post-doc positions in January 2015.
The postdoc position is available for 1 year to model the pattern of
genomic diversity created during range expansions. A computer simulation
framework will be developed to 1) detect typical signatures of range
expansions at the molecular level and 2) to co-estimate the distribution
of fitness effects and the past history of populations from their patterns
of genomic diversity.
The first PhD position is in evolutionary theory under the main
supervision of Dr. Stephan Peischl. It will consist in studying the
interactions between ecology, demography and selection at range margins.
The second PhD position is in human population genomics, and will
be mainly supervised by Prof. Laurent Excoffier. It will consist in
improving methods to detect selection at the gene network level and
after range expansions in humans.
The two PhD positions are available for 3 years.
We are looking for highly motivated individuals with a good background
in population genomics, statistics, and advanced computational skills,
and with strong oral and written communication abilities.
The CMPG lab is hosted by the Institute of Ecology and Evolution at the
University of Berne, and it offers a very international and stimulating
research environment. It is also affiliated to the Swiss Institute of
Bioinformatics (SIB) which offers ample potential for interactions. Berne
is ideally located in the middle of Switzerland and Europe, and provides
rich cultural and outdoor activities.
The gross salary of the post-doc candidate would be around 80,000 CHF
per year and those of PhD students around 32,000 CHF, per year. All
three positions are expected to start in January 2015.
For any position, please send an application letter stating your
motivation for the position, a CV, and contact information of two
