A postdoctoral position, supported by the G.G. Simpson Postdoctoral Fellowship, is available in the Badyaev lab at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. This position was established to honor Prof. George Gaylord Simpson's work at our Department and provides an excellent opportunity for a productive and creative scientist to work on fundamental problems in evolutionary biology of their own choosing within the broad conceptual framework and empirical expertise of the lab. We are particularly interested in integrative organismal biologists wanting to master genomic, developmental or systems biology approaches to the evolution of organismal form and function. In addition to training and extensive laboratory facilities, there is an opportunity to participate in long-term field studies or to work with large multi-generational captive populations.
The position comes with a salary of $54,840/yr with full benefits and is renewable depending on funding.
Apply online submitting: 1) A single page outline of your dream research project inspired by integration of your existing expertise and approaches you would like to learn as a postdoc, 2) CV with contacts of three references, and 3) reprints of 2-3 of your most representative papers combined in a single file.
The start date is flexible but anticipated to be after February 2023 or when the suitable candidate is identified. Review of applications will begin in late January 2023 and continue until the position is filled. Address inquiries to Alex Badyaev: firstname.lastname@example.org
Required qualifications: PhD in Biology or related field by Spring 2023, significant record of research in evolutionary organismal biology.
Preferred skills and abilities: (one or more of the following): Molecular genetics, genomic analysis, HPLC/UPLC, immunohistochemistry, bioinformatics.
