The Edge lab (https://edgepopgen.github.io/edgelab/) in USC's Quantitative and Computational Biology section is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work on projects in computational population genetics. The postdoc will be funded by an NIH grant targeted at understanding complex traits using population-genomic tools, as well as on the intersection of population genetics and genetic privacy. Postdocs will have leeway to design their own projects within these broad areas in collaboration with the PI. A PhD is required by the time the candidate starts but not at the time of application. There is no requirement as to the field in which the PhD is earned. Execution of projects will require some combination of population-genetic modeling, data simulation, bioinformatics, and data analysis. However, successful candidates need not be proficient in all these fields when they apply. Members of groups that have been underrepresented in evolutionary or computational biology are encouraged to apply. You can read more about the lab culture and policies on our website (https://edgepopgen.github.io/edgelab/culture/).
To apply, please include a CV and a cover letter that briefly describes your research experience and interests to date, your goals for your postdoctoral training, and how you think work in the Edge lab will advance you toward your goals. Please also list 2-3 professional references.
