Postdoctoral Position - Statistical Genetics
A postdoctoral research associate position is available starting July 1,
Long-range goal: Understanding, at the whole genome level, mechanisms that
produce genetic variation in populations under selection, to detect these
mechanisms using DNA marker information, and to exploit them in population
Immediate objective: Develop statistical theory and software to detect QTL
that interact with genetic background or that have undergone mutation or
recombination during the course of selection.
* Ph.D. in plant or animal breeding or genetics with strong
statistical background and interest is required.
* Ability or interest in computer programming also required
(preferably in C++).
* Familiarity with Bayesian statistics and with statistical methods
associated with analyzing pedigrees highly desirable.
* Research experience and analysis of molecular marker / phenotype
associations preferable but not required.
* Ability to think independently and possession of excellent oral and
written communication skills.
The initial appointment will be for one year, with funding available for up
to three years, contingent on satisfactory progress. Starting salary
$30,000 to $35,000 with benefits. For inquiries and to apply send (by email
