Stockholm, Sweden: Postdoc in Bayesian computation PDF Tisk Email


Our group develops methods for Bayesian phylogenetic and phylogenomic
inference, with numerous applications across the life sciences. We focus
on applications to problems in evolutionary biology, biogeography and
biodiversity, but the software we produce, MrBayes (http://mrbayes.net)
and RevBayes (http://revbayes.com),

is widely used for other problem
areas as well.

In this project, funded by the Swedish Research Council, we will
focus on analyses of data from massively parallel sequencing efforts
using RevBayes, our R-like computing environment. RevBayes is based
on graphical model concepts, and is primarily intended for Bayesian
analysis of complex evolutionary models. Within this general context,
the successful candidate will have great freedom in formulating her or
his project. The project can be focused on method development or empirical
analyses, but should include a substantial computational component.

The ideal candidate should have a doctoral degree in evolutionary biology,
bioinformatics, mathematics, statistics, or computer science. Regardless
of your background, you should be familiar with biological research
problems, be comfortable with mathematical and statistical reasoning, and
have solid computational and programming skills. We will pay particular
attention to scientific talent and potential.

The position is for two years with preferred starting date in the early
fall of 2015. The Swedish Museum of Natural History (NRM) is one of
the leading institutions of its kind in Europe. It combines a venerable
tradition and unique collections with cutting-edge research in geology,
paleontology and biology. The museum is close to Stockholm University,
the Royal School of Engineering (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute. The
Stockholm Phylogenomics Group (http://phylogenomics.se) engages research
groups from all of these institutions. The Department of Bioinformatics
and Genetics at NRM is focused on research in computational phylogenetics,
population genetics and genomics. We run a DNA sequencing facility and
host several national and international infrastructures.

The application should consist of a personal letter, a description of the
planned research project (max 5 pages), and a CV. Mark your application
with dnr 2.3.1-181-2015 and send it to  Tato emailová adresa je chráněna před spamboty, abyste ji viděli, povolte JavaScript  no later than
