The Svardal lab at the University of Antwerp, Belgium is looking for PhD and Postdoc candidates to be part of an exciting funded project to study the occurrence and role of structural genetic variants in the rapid adaptive diversification of cichlid fishes .In one of two available project you will either
(1) establish novel molecular and computational techniques to identifystructural variants or
(2) develop machine learning and population genomic approaches to modelthe evolutionary and adaptive history of these structural variants andunderstand their role in adaptive radiation.
We are looking mainly for candidates with a quantitative (computationalgenomics, population genetics) background, but also candidates with adifferent background interested in these topics are welcome to apply. Closing date 01/03/2020. Possible start date 01/04/2020.
