Multi-species Population Genetics/Genomics

Post-Doctoral Fellow

The CBG seeks highly qualified postdoctoral fellows to join and strengthen a vibrant research and innovation group. Applicants for these positions must possess a passion for problem solving, the ability to work in a team, and a strong publication record. Ideally, candidates should bring prior experience in biodiversity genomics and in scripting (e.g. Perl, Python, R). These positions have the potential for extension beyond an initial two-year term, subject to annual performance reviews.

Multi-species Population Genetics/Genomics

High-throughput sequencing (HTS) of taxon assemblages makes it possible to test hypotheses relating to regional patterns of demographic stability, isolation, and admixture. The successful applicant will join a team developing multi-taxa population genomic models to understand community assembly, colonization, and vicariance based on population-level sequencing data collected across entire taxonomic assemblages. Desirable Background: proficiency with methods in community population genetics; statistical skills; experience in analysing large-scale genetic/genomic data.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. At the University of Guelph, fostering a culture of inclusion is an institutional imperative. The University invites and encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in employment, who may contribute to further diversification of our Institution.
