The Korol and Hübner labs at the University of Haifa, Israel are looking for an excellent candidate to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship from the Azrieli Foundation.

The proposed project involves analysis of next generation sequencing data using advanced computational tools to elucidate the role of recombination in adaptation of wild barley to harsh environments. Over 7Tbp of sequence data is available for the project, thus significant and high impact results are feasible for the project.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with experience in population genomics data analysis and bioinformatics. The ideal candidate should have an excellent research record and relevant experience in genomics, bioinformatics, population genetics, comparative genomics, or related disciplines. The project scope is generally established and there is plenty of room to bring new ideas and approaches (e.g., machine learning in deducing genomic landscape of recombination density).

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, CV, names and contact details of two references, and a one-page description of their research accomplishments, all as a single PDF file.

Submission of applications start at September 1st !!!!

Who can apply?

Candidates who have received or will receive their PhD degrees at a recognized university in the EU or EFTA states, UK and Canada, may apply.

Eligible countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK.
