Workplace : MONTPELLIER
Date of publication : Friday, October 8, 2021
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 24 months
Expected date of employment : 1 November 2021
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : between 2541 et 3524 brut (gross) depending on experience
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : Indifferent
Experience in genomic analysis of next generation sequence data is required, and specific experience in genome-wide association mapping is preferred. The candidate will also be expected to contribute to the organisational aspects of the large project, including organising DNA sequencing, laboratory work and fieldwork (e.g. obtaining quotes for sequencing, ordering chemicals, organising travel for fieldwork, etc.). Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal skills, a strong work ethic and the ability to think creatively and critically are desired.
The main responsibilities will therefore be genome-wide association mapping, comparative genomics and organisation of DNA sequencing and laboratory work. The candidate will then lead the data analysis and writing for submission of manuscripts to peer-reviewed scientific journals.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a solid conceptual and formal background in evolutionary biology. Experience with genomic analysis of next-generation sequence data is required, and specific experience with genome-wide association mapping is a preferred asset. Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal skills, a strong work ethic, and the ability to think creatively and critically are desired.
Evolutionary and ecological processes can affect one another. For example, evolutionary adaptation within species can affect population dynamics or species interactions in communities, and thus ecosystem functioning. This position is part of a larger research project funded by the European Research Council (Consolidator Grant to P. Nosil) to investigate the community and ecosystem level consequences of evolution within a stick-insect species (Timema cristinae). The project will specifically test for reciprocal interactions and feedback loops between ecological and evolutionary processes. Most relevant for this advertised position, we seek candidates with experience in genomic analyses to test how genes within species affect ecological communities. Key publications pertaining to the project are Farkas et al. 2013 Current Biology, Nosil et al. 2018 Science and Villoutreix et al. 2020 Science.
The candidate will work at CEFE with the project leader, Patrik Nosil, his colleagues and fellow team members on the ERC funded project.
Constraints and risks
Lab work (chemicals related to molecular biology, DNA sequencng), fieldwork.
