Postdoc position in computational evolutionary genomics

A postdoctoral position is available at Pennsylvania State University to investigate how natural selection shapes human evolution and disease, under the supervision of Dr. Yifei Huang (https://yifei-lab.github.io).

Responsibilities:

The postdoctoral scholar will combine population genetic methods and machine learning techniques to explore genomic determinants of negative selection, positive selection, and/or human accelerated evolution in genes and cis-regulatory elements.

Qualifications:

The ideal candidates will have a PhD or equivalent degree, with relevant training in at least one field related to population genomics, comparative genomics, functional genomics, molecular evolution, or statistics/machine learning. Experience in analyzing large-scale population/comparative genomic data or implementing machine learning/statistical models is a plus.
