Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Marine Genomic and Ecology
University of Agder
The post-doctoral position is part of the institutional focus on marine ecology in cooperation with HI and UiO/CEES. The title of the project is “Population Genomics of Marine Species in Norwegian Waters”. The project involves the analysis of genomic data (e.g. RAD) coupled with environmental/biological data for the study of invasion dynamics, adaptation and fine and large-scaled spatial genetic structure.
The Post-doctoral Research Fellow is expected to take part in a binding cooperation with the research group and to contribute to an active research environment that will give opportunities for personal and professional development. The appointee must have the ability to work in a goal-oriented, organised, focused, and independent manner. During the assessment process emphasis will be placed on the PhD work and examination results, as well as any other previous research and development work.
Relevant practical experience, personal suitability and good teamwork skills will also be emphasised.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD or be able to document confirmed date for the dissertation defence.
Primarily, the successful candidate should hold a PhD in population genetics/genomics with a strong bioinformatic background. Experience with analysing high-throughput sequencing (HTS) data, including programming in python and/or statistical analysis in R will be emphasised. Applicants with a PhD in Marine Biology and good skills in bioinformatics/statistics, or a PhD in Statistics and good knowledge of marine ecological topics are also welcome to apply.
Profiency in oral and written English is required.
