We invite applications for three Postdoctoral Researchers to join the Laboratory of Dr. Levi Yant in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the John Innes Centre.
Successful candidates will be absorbed by challenging problems in population genomics, perform independent, novel analyses and will have demonstrated scientific success during or following their PhD. The primary research aim of these positions will be to take ownership of large-scale population genomic resequencing projects...
Last week Kirsten Bomblies and Levi visited the amazing National Laboratory of Genomics for Biodiversity, Langebio, in Irapuato, Mexico. Thank you to all the wonderful students and faculty that made it such a wonderful visit. This center and the great work going on there are a wonderful sign of a bright future for science in Mexico!
After finishing his PhD in Zurich with Ueli Grossniklaus, Christian is joining the lab to work on parallel edaphic adaptations in an expansive project we're collaborating on with Ute Krämer (Ruhr-Universität, Bochum, Germany).
Congratulations to John Pulice, who obtained funding from Harvard MCZ/HUH/AA GUR for us to perform a genome scan on Chamerion, including synthetic long read assemblies!
Chamerion is a long established model used to study the evolution and ecology of multiple ploidy systems. We're looking to unlock this rich literature by applying population genomics to populations world-wide. This is a collaboration with Brian Husband, who has done the ecological work (U. Guelph, Canada).
