Job: Postdoc in fisheries genomics

Title Postdoc in fisheries genomics
Agency, Location Cornell University, NY
Categories PhD, Post-doc
Job # 13948
Salary Commensurate with experience

The laboratory of Nina Overgaard Therkildsen at Cornell University is looking for two postdocs to join ongoing projects on the genomic basis of clinal adaptation in the Atlantic silverside and the American shad. The silverside project is focused on fundamental questions about the genomic architecture underlying local adaptation despite gene flow. The shad project has a more applied goal of developing powerful markers for assigning fish caught in ocean fisheries back to their rivers of origin and better understanding the degree of local adaptation and impacts of historical stocking.


Candidates should hold a PhD in evolutionary genomics, molecular ecology, bioinformatics or a related field. We are looking for creative and talented scientists who are team players with good publication records and excellent organizational and communication skills. The successful candidates must have a strong computational/bioinformatics background and previous experience with analyzing large population genomics data sets. Review of applications will begin on July 2 and continue until the position is filled.
