PostDoc: Bioinformatics/Phylogenomics

Our team has initiated a collaboration that will strengthen two informatics platforms (BOLD, mBRAVE) developed at the CBG with platforms to support phylogenetic analysis and global ecosystem modelling.


The successful applicant will join the implementation team to develop methods for estimating divergence times from DNA barcodes, as well as multi-gene and genome-scale datasets as well as the empirical analysis of large molecular datasets to test hypotheses relating to rates of speciation and molecular evolution.


Desirable Background: Ideally, candidates should bring prior experience in biodiversity genomics and in scripting (e.g. Perl, Python, R). Proficiency with phylogenetic and phylogenomic methods; statistical skills; experience in analysing large-scale genetic/genomic data; proficiency in programming and the use of compute clusters; experience in other programming languages.
