Population genomics of Indo-Pacific birds, postdoc

A 2-yearpostdoc (with a possible extension for up to a year) in Population Genomics isavailable from 1 April 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.  
Section for Biosystematics at the Natural History Museum of Denmark  
 Faculty of Science  
 University of Copenhagen  
The successful candidate will work on population genomics of Indo-Pacific birds aspart of a larger ongoing Villum Foundation funded project that aims toelucidate the underlying mechanisms of how species form, disperse, adapt andinteract and how this leads to the species distributions we see today.
Work inthe group includes phylogenetics, phylogeography and systematics and we have astrong field component (currently we work mostly in Papua New Guinea), with theaim of collecting additional data (molecular and ecological) as well as fittingsatellite transmitters to monitor annual movement of sedentary bird species.The candidate is mainly expected to work on the generation of genomic data anddownstream analyses but is also encouraged to be part of the field efforts.
The work will be in close collaboration with other group members as well as withother staff and students at the Natural History Museum of Denmark (notably withthe Evogenomics group led by Professor Tom Gilbert) and the Swedish Museum of Natural History (notably members of the Department of Bioinformatics andGenetics). We seek applicants who have intimate knowledge of and interest in population genomics and phylogeographyirrespective of organisms. This research builds on a large collection of freshtissue material from two elevational gradients on Indonesian islands (Buru andSeram) and two elevational gradients in Papua New Guinea and aim to shed lighton movement along the gradients and across the barriers and how populationsdifferentiate and adapt over time.  
The postdoc’s duties will include research as well as teaching. The postmay also include performance of other duties.  

  • A strong background in populationgenomics  
  • Excellent analytical skills withinpopulation genomics  
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills  
  • Ability to effectively work independently and inmultidisciplinary teams
