The group of Plant Ecology and Evolution at the University of Basel, Switzerland (https://duw.unibas.ch/en/ecoevo/ ), is looking for a postdoc to lead the analyses of population genomics data sets in the fields of Plant Population Genetics and Plant Molecular Biology.
Our research projects generally focus on (a) genetic consequences of past range dynamics, (b) spatial analysis of genetic variation, (c) analysis of mutational load, (c) detecting genetic variants of climate adaptation, or more rarely (e) functional molecular analyses. Our group has recently sequenced the whole genome of individuals of many populations of North American Arabidopsis, and of a handful of Brassicaceae species differing in elevational distribution in the Swiss Alps. Therefore, population genomic data reflect a wide range of geographic, climatic and other clines.
The fellowship is for applicants who have done a PhD or at least one postdoc in Evolutionary Genetics / Genomics.
The initial appointment is for one year; based on performance, the fellowship is renewable for up to six years. The University of Basel has generous resources for genomic analysis (scientific high- performance computing, data management, training and support). Furthermore, our Department of Environmental Sciences offers a stimulating environment, including a rich spectrum of research activities in life sciences (ecological genomics, population genomics, evolutionary biology, plant ecology, physiology and molecular and cell biology). Finally, Basel is a mid-sized Swiss city, well connected and offering a broad range of cultural and recreational activities.
Application / Contact
Motivated applicants should submit (1) a one-page letter that summarizes interests and relevant experience, (2) their CV, (3) copies of PhD and other relevant diploma transcripts, and (4) contact information of two references. We accept only online applications. Applications are welcome until the position is filled and will be reviewed starting January, 1, 2022. For more information, contact Yvonne Willi (email@example.com )
