Department of Genome Biology, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment
Position Level: Level A
Salary Package: $58,077 - $73,669 pa plus 17% superannuation
The Computational Genomics Group in the John Curtin School of Medical Research at The Australian National University have made pioneering contributions to our understanding of genetic diversity within and between mammal species in areas including: the genomic distribution of linkage disequilibrium, human molecular adaptation, the influence of sex on mutation rates, the relationship between epigenetic state and genetic variation, and the radiation of mammals. These contributions have been accompanied by significant methodology developments in the form of both novel statistical models and open source software for analyses of genomic diversity. Our recent advances in models of context-dependent substitution, for instance, represent a significant advance in robust estimation of the mode of natural selection.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will work on the development and application of improved models of sequence divergence, joining a highly productive collaboration between Associate Professors Gavin Huttley and Von Bing Yap (National University of Singapore). The work will build on the PyCogent open source software toolkit for statistical modelling of molecular evolution developed in the Huttley laboratory.
If you have an outstanding track record in a relevant area such as molecular evolution, population genetics, mathematical statistics, computational or theoretical chemistry, the experience and qualifications necessary to succeed and are keen to join a leading team in research, we would welcome your application. Experience in programming will be highly regarded.
