Default Postdoc/Technician position: Population genetics/phylogenomics, Hawaii

Aloha! The University of Hawaii Manoa and USDA-ARS Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center have funding for a post-doc or highly experienced technician in the area of population genetics/phylogenomics/bioinformatics. This research project is focused on analyzing populations of Tephritid fruit fly species using genome-wide analysis techniques towards marker discovery and developing assays for determination of source populations. The duties would be analysis of NGS data, focusing on population biology, genomics, etc. Strong background in population genetics and phylogenetics is required. Knowledge of linux/unix, scripting, and light programming in some language would be good, although on-site learning is possible too. Our approaches include RAD-Seq, GBS (genotyping by sequencing), RNA-seq, and multi-gene sequencing. We have advanced computing resources and a very active research program. Salary is ~$45,000, hired through University of Hawaii Manoa, and the job will be stationed at the USDA-ARS Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center in Hilo, Hawaii. Funding is guaranteed for 1 year, with possibility of extension based on future funding. PhD or Masters with extensive experience is required.
