The Coop lab at UC Davis (www.gcbias.org) is seeking candidates for two postdoctoral positions. These two positions will broadly focus on:
1) The evolutionary causes and consequences of recombination variation in humans.
2) understanding polygenic selection and soft sweeps.
Successful applicants would also have considerable flexibility to develop their own research program in collaboration with the Coop lab. Strong candidates for these positions would have a PhD in population genetics, statistics, or related fields, and have good backgrounds in computational and statistical approaches. The Coop lab works at the intersection of population genomics, theoretical population genetics, and methods development. We are active members of the Department of Evolution and Ecology and Center for Population Biology.
Please send Graham Coop an email gmcoop [at] ucdavis.edu. Please include
(i) your CV, (ii) a description of your previous research and future goals, (iii) contact details for three references. We will consider applications on a rolling basis starting immediately.
