Postdoctoral associates and graduate students in environmental genomics

to work on scans, and QTL experiments to explore the causes and phenotypic consequences of gene copy number variation as they relate to adaptation, disease, and susceptibility in the NIH model Daphnia



Indiana University has institutional goals to establish leadership in the
area of environmental genomics [UTF-8?]–to understand how gene function is
influenced by environmental conditions, while accounting for variation
that exists within and among natural populations. The Shaw lab in the
School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the Center for Genomics and
Bioinformatics at Indiana University is looking for talented, creative,
and motivated post-doctoral associates and graduate students who want to
make a positive impact on the world, while advancing their careers in this
exciting new area of study. We have current openings to work on an NIEHS
funded project that couples mutation accumulation studies, population
genome scans, and QTL experiments to explore the causes and phenotypic
consequences of gene copy number variation as they relate to adaptation,
disease, and susceptibility in the NIH model Daphnia (Science, 2011, 331:
555-561). Individuals with strong quantitative backgrounds in genomics,
population genetics, computational biology or related fields are
encouraged to apply. Knowledge of statistics, in particular
high-throughput data analysis is also highly desired. Candidates must be
effective working independently and confident leading projects, while also
collaborating and assisting the group in its collective goals. Those
applying for graduate studies should have prior research experience [UTF-8?]–a
[UTF-8?]Master’s degree or equivalent is preferable, and meet the academic
requirements of the School. Applicants for post-doctoral positions must
have a strong record of productivity as evidenced by publications. All
should possess exceptional written and oral communication skills. To
apply, please send a cover letter that explains how this position fits
with your experience and goals, CV, and references to joeshaw@indiana.edu
or mail a hard copy to:  Joseph Shaw, Ph.D., School of Public and
Environmental Affairs, Indiana University, 1315 East 10th Street,
Bloomington, IN 47405.  For more information visit
