Postdoc positions in Comparative Genomics, Statistics, Bioinformatics

posted Jun 6, 2014, 12:32 PM by Melissa Wilson Sayres

The Wilson Sayres Lab at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ is recruiting two Postdoctoral Research Associates in the areas of Comparative Genomics, Statistics, and Bioinformatics to develop methodologies and study evolutionary questions related to sex chromosome evolution and sex biased processes, primarily in mammals, but also other taxa.  Successful applicants will join a rapidly growing lab involved in a variety of active research projects and collaborations.  Current projects include (1) assessing the magnitude and effect of male mutation bias, (2) simulating patterns of demography and selection on sex chromosomes, (3) determining the timing of recombination suppression on mammalian sex chromosomes, (4) measuring patterns of expression evolution on the active and inactive X chromosomes, (5) identifying signatures of positive selection across mammals proteomes (including sperm proteome), (6) identifying signals of convergent molecular evolution. 

The Wilson Sayres Lab is part of the Center for Evolutionary Medicine and Informatics (CEMI), one of 10 research centers in the Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute. Research in the Wilson Sayres Lab covers many different questions in population genetics and molecular evolution, at the interface of biology, statistics, and computer science. Lab members have the opportunity to develop both dry-lab and wet-lab research programs.
