Job Description: 

POSITION FOR A POSTDOCTORAL EVOLUTIONARY GENOMICIST WITH STRONG COMPUTATIONAL SKILLS AT NEW YORK UNIVERSITY

A postdoctoral position is available for a highly motivated evolutionary genomicist with strong computational biology skills at the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology at New York University. The position is part of an NIH-funded International Center of Excellence in Malaria Research, and a collaborative project between the laboratory of Program Director Jane Carlton at NYU and the Broad Institute.

The postdoctoral fellow will drive the evolutionary/phylogeographic exploration of data from Illumina sequencing of several hundred malaria parasite genomes collected from around the globe and sequenced at the Broad Institute. Strong computational abilities to manipulate large datasets an asset but not as essential as expertise in population genomics theory and analytical approaches to studying genome evolution of microbes.

Requirements: 

Applicants should have:
(1) A detailed knowledge of next generation sequence data analysis.
(2) Proficiency in evolutionary genomics methods and interpretation.
(3) An ability to work with an interdisciplinary team.
(4) Good spoken and written English.

Contact Information: 

Interested parties should email a CV and names of three references to Lab Manager Becca Susko at rs3357@nyu.edu, with Carlton Lab Evolutionary Genomics Position in the subject line. Applications received before Sept 1 2013 will receive full consideration. The position is available immediately.
