We are seeking expressions of interest for two postdoc and one phd positions. The formal selection process will be announced soon (April 2020 for the postdocs, June 2020 for the phd), but we ask to all interested candidates to send their CV and contact details of two references as soon as possible. We expect the postdocs to start about June (negotiable), while the phd student will be enrolled in November.
The phd and one postdoc positions will be both based at the University of Ferrara, and will mainly focus on the population genomics analyses under the supervision of Giorgio Bertorelle. The second postdoc position will be based at the University of Trieste under the supervision of Marco Gerdol, and will focus on the de novo assembly and annotation of the genomes of the five target species. There will be a regular interaction among students and researchers from all units, sharing and discussing the advancements in every topic relevant to the project. This will contribute to the scientific growth of graduate students and postdocs in many different fields: genomics, population genetics, evolution, conservation biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology.
The salary for the phd student is fixed nationally and will be 1140 Euros per month. The salary for the postdoc will be around 1500-1600 Euros (negotiable) per month.
