The Ramachandran Lab at Brown University (http://www.brown.edu/Research/Ramachandran_Lab/) has positions open for two postdoctoral fellows, each with funding available for three years for excellent candidates, depending on progress after the first year.
The lab's research program currently focuses on developing novel population genetic and statistical methods to (1) localize adaptive mutations from genomic data, (2) identify gene subnetworks underlying common diseases, and (3) infer demographic histories from whole-genome datasets. Successful candidates may develop projects related to these standing research interests, or propose new projects related to the lab's interests in population and statistical genetics.
Applicants must have either a background in theoretical population genetics with experience analyzing genomic data, or a quantitative background (e.g., statistics, computer science) with a desire to do research in genetics and evolutionary biology. Although the lab has traditionally focused on applied analyses using human genomes, applicants interested in studying other organisms are more than welcome.
