An exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is available in the research group of Dr. Charlotte Lindqvist
in the Department of Biological Sciences
, University at Buffalo. We are seeking applications for a Postdoctoral Associate
to join a collaborative NSF-funded
plant phylogenomic project. The project will utilize next-generation sequencing approaches involving targeted enrichment, whole genome sequencing, and broad taxonomic sampling, including both herbarium/living collections and field collections, to build a robust phylogenetic platform of lamioid mints (Lamioideae, Lamiaceae) and explore patterns of diversification and links to shifts in distribution, ecology, and genome dynamics. The Postdoctoral Associate will be based at the University at Buffalo but will collaborate closely with grant partners at the Missouri Western State University and an important aspect will be mentoring of undergraduate research at both institutions.
Job tasks and responsibilities include:
- DNA extraction, short and long read genome sequencing, HybSeq development and data analysis and interpretation
- Genome assembly and bioinformatic analyses
- Training of undergraduate students and outreach activities
