Landscape Genomics Postdoc at UBC

A research team at the University of British Columbia’s Department of Zoology and Biodiversity Research Centre is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in landscape genetics of native rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). This project is part of a larger Genome Canada project on genetics and physiology of adaptation to climate change in rainbow trout, and the population genomics component is in the labs of Eric Taylor and Michael Whitlock. The landscape genomics component primarily involves whole genome sequencing approaches to understanding the genomic basis of adaptation to features of habitat, but also to provide insights into phylogeography and the influence of watershed structure on population subdivision in rainbow trout. A PhD in a related field with expertise in basic theory and bioinformatic analysis of population genomics data is required. The position is available for one year with renewal for up to three additional years. Salary is $55,000 per year plus benefits. To apply, please send a brief cover letter summarizing your qualifications for the position, a CV, and the names, address, phone number and email of three references. Review of applications will begin January 16, 2017. Address application materials to etaylor@zoology.ubc.ca to whom any questions can also be addressed.
