    Postdoctoral Research Associate

    Delmore Lab, Texas A&M University




    We are looking for a postdoc to collaborate on projects related to the genetic basis of behavioral traits and their role in speciation. We focus primarily on courtship behavior and migration in songbirds and there will be an emphasis on the use of bioinformatics tools. The exact projects can be flexible but we are especially interested in having someone join our efforts on an existing project comprised of several gene expression datasets. This is a great opportunity get your hands on some genomic data right away while developing your own ideas for future projects.



    We are part of the Biology Department at Texas A&M (https://bio.tamu.edu) along with the interdisciplinary programs of Genetics (https://genetics.tamu.edu) and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (https://eeb.tamu.edu). These programs bring together members of many departments across campus from a variety of scientific and international backgrounds. The atmosphere is collaborative, enthusiastic and supportive and Texas A&M is Tier 1 institution with a huge number of research facilities. College station is a small, friendly university town located between Austin and Houston.

    All this being said, we recognize COVID-19 has made travel and in person work a challenge for many so we are also open to discussing remote options.



    PhD in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science or related fields. Experience working independently with next-generation sequencing data and familiarity with the use of data on gene expression and/or epigenetic markers. We expect applicants to exhibit a desire to work collaboratively and help maintain a supportive environment in our lab.



    Applicants should send (1) a letter of motivation that includes their research interests and career goals and (2) a CV that includes the names, emails and phone numbers of at least two references to Kira Delmore (kdelmore@bio.tamu.edu). Applications will be reviewed as received. Please get in touch if you have any additional questions.
