Do you have a doctoral degree and a recorded scientific expertise and interest in population, evolutionary and quantitative genomics? The University of Oulu, Department of Ecology and Genetics is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work on various aspects of Scots pine genetics. The successful applicant will contribute to evolutionary focused combined analysis of gene expression and nucleotide diversity data of Scots pine and analysing the performance and data from recently developed SNP chips for multiple European tree species in B4EST project in collaboration with French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA).
The University of Oulu is one of the biggest and most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. It is an international science community working in close cooperation with research institutes, companies, and the public sector. Together it forms a globally significant research hub, relentlessly pushing the boundaries of known for a more sustainable and intelligent future. The postdoctoral researcher will be part of Pyhäjärvi Lab (oulu.fi/pyhajarvilab) which collaborates closely with other European forest geneticists via the Horizon 2020 projects GenTree and B4EST.
The applicant should have a doctoral degree, recorded scientific expertise and interest in population, evolutionary and quantitative genomics. Experience in bioinformatics and gene expression analysis is an advantage. The deadline for applications is Friday, 29 November 2019 at 23:59 (Finnish local time).
