Two Postdoc Positions Available for computational phylogenetics and molecular evolution
Two postdoctoral researcher positions are available in the computational evolutionary biology lab of Jeremy M. Brown at Louisiana State University. Research in the Brown lab is broadly centered on the use of phylogenetic approaches to understand organismal history and molecular evolution.
Position 1 is part of a project funded by the National Science Foundation to develop and apply a suite of related statistical approaches for assessing the fit of stochastic models to sequence and trait data. The Brown lab is collaborating extensively on this project with the lab of Bob Thomson at the University of Hawaii – Manoa, as well as the developers of RevBayes and the authors of various R packages.
Position 2 is not tied to a specific project, but research connected to other areas of active inquiry in the Brown lab will be strongly preferred. These areas include the development of new techniques for extracting information from large collections of phylogenetic trees, the exploration of new models and priors for Bayesian phylogenetics, and the investigation of genome-wide phylogenetic and evolutionary patterns.
