The focus of the project will be on integrating ancient genomics with population genetic theory and quantitative genetic resources. The candidate will have freedom to design their project in consultation with the advisor. Research topics can include: 1) Utilizing canine trait-association data to learn about the evolution of complex traits in ancient dogs from the Paleolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age 2) Developing methods to detect genes under positive selection when working with multiple populations related to each other in complex ways 3) Searching for functional variants that were positively selected in dogs over time during major human cultural transitions, like the advent of agriculture 4) Testing among different models of co-evolution between humans and dogs. The PhD position is funded by the Villum Foundation, and will be carried out at the Globe Institute, a newly-created research institute in Denmark.
