I am looking for a motivated and productive PhD student to study spatial patterns of human migration and admixture using genome-scale data and cutting-edge computational and statistical analysis. There is scope to accommodate existing research interests, but broadly speaking the successful candidate will develop, implement and test new methods in statistical genetics, and apply these methods to genetic and cultural anthropology datasets.
This computational position requires solid quantitative skills, preferably including some background in statistics and programming. Training in biology and anthropology can be provided as needed, and candidates from non-standard research backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates must already hold a Masters or Bachelors degree with Honors.
