Applications are invited for a POST-DOC in PLANT COMPARATIVE GENOMICS in the
Department of Biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The primary focus of the position will be to study the evolution of
functional motifs among orthologous and paralogous lineages within plant
gene families. Independent research is also encouraged. Additional
responsibilities include contributing to the development of a plant
comparative genomics database and participating in educational outreach. The
position is supported by a grant from the NSF Plant Genome Program to
develop and apply molecular phylogenetic methods to problems in plant
comparative and functional genomics. The successful applicant will have a
strong track record in computational genetics and molecular evolution. A
plant biology background is desirable but not essential.
Applications should include a cover letter with a statement of research
interests, a CV and contact information for at least two references. Send
applications by email to Dr. Todd Vision at tjv at bio.unc.edu.
