We are looking for a motivated and productive postdoctoral fellow to study spatial patterns of human migration and admixture using genome-scale data and cutting-edge computational and statistical analysis. The successful candidate will have the scope to drive his/her own research within the bounds of the group’s larger research agenda. 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. Guaranteed funding is available for three years, with an initial probationary period of one year. The salary is extremely competitive, starting at NZ $64,000 (~US $54,000) per year.
A PhD in computational biology, or otherwise applicable field (interpreted broadly) Experience Minimum Qualifications: -Able to conduct independent cutting-edge research -Proven research experience, including evidence of a publication record -Strong quantitative skills, including some background in statistics and programming Preferred Qualifications: -Candidates with a background in applied mathematics/physics/computer science are especially encouraged to apply -Candidates will ideally be conversant in at least one programming language -Additional computational and statistical experience would be an advantage
