Postdoc: Evolutionary Genomics, Hahn Lab -Indiana University
Indiana University Purdue University Indianpolis (IUPUI)
Location: Bloomington, Indiana
Internal Number: 12475
Department: IU Bloomington Biology
An NSF-funded postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Matthew Hahn in the Department of Biology and Department of Computer Science at Indiana University, Bloomington. The work will examine models of trait evolution in a phylogenetic context, particularly for complex traits and on species trees with discordance. Our lab has developed some of the statistical and computational tools necessary to study traits in these contexts, and we are looking for someone to extend these methods and analyses in new ways. The postdoctoral candidate will also be encouraged to carry out independent work.
There is a wide variety of research going on in the lab in addition to the current project. For a summary of our work, please see: https://hahnlab.sitehost.iu.edu/
The candidate must have a Ph.D., at time of appointment, preferably in phylogenetics, population genetics, statistical genetics, or computer science at time of appointment. The position will require the candidate to develop strong computational skills, but motivated scientists who wish to learn these skills are encouraged to apply.
The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to building and supporting a diverse, inclusive, and equitable community of students and scholars.
