The post-doc will analyse genome sequences of healthy mussels and of transmissible neoplasia derived from another species of mussel. The objective is to study the impact of a life style change toward clonal propagation on genome evolution. Sequences will also be used to infer the origin of the emergence of the transmissible cancer and its age.


Analysis of shotgun genome sequences. Mapping and SNP calling. Genome assembly. Molecular evolution analyses: mutational spectra, dN/dS ratios.


Excellent knowledge of population genetics and molecular evolution. Good skills with bioinformatic analyses of genome sequences. A knowledge of the study system, Mytilus mussels, would be appreciated.

Work Context

The post is located at the Institut des Sciences de l'Evolution of Montpellier, on the Trilot campus of the Univsersity of Montpellier. ISEM is an excellent working environment for evolutionary genomics with good access to computing facilities and with a bioinformatic team for assistance.
