Postdoc positions, Brown University, Rhode Island (USA)

The Ramachandran Lab at Brown University (http://www.brown.edu/Research/Ramachandran_Lab/) has positions open for two postdoctoral fellows, each with funding for two years and the possibility of a third year for excellent candidates. brownuni

The lab’s research program currently focuses on developing novel statistical methods to (1) localize adaptive mutations from genomic data, (2) identify gene subnetworks underlying common diseases, and (3) infer changes in effective population size from multilocus datasets. Successful candidates may develop projects related to these standing research interests, or propose new projects related to the lab’s interests.

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.

Informal inquiries as well as applications (consisting of a CV, copies of relevant publications, and contact information for at least two references) should be emailed to Sohini Ramachandran at sramachandran@brown.edu.
