Default Postdoctoral Scholar:Population Genomics

The Shaffer Lab at UCLA ( is recruiting a postdoctoral scholar to join our team. The primary goals for this postdoc are to work with our lab on several next-generation sequencing projects on reptile and amphibian conservation and evolutionary genomics, largely centered on California taxa. Current major projects include analyses of hybrid salamander genetics, desert tortoise landscape genomics, and turtle phylogenetics and systematics.

The ideal candidate will have expertise in next-generation molecular lab protocols, which might include target capture, RADseq and whole genome low-coverage sequencing. In addition, the postdoc should be excited and able to learn new techniques quickly and troubleshoot and optimize current protocols. The individual will be expected to work closely with lab members to organize and manage multiple research projects and perform basic to advanced data analysis on next-gen data. Although the primary responsibility will be to contribute to existing, funded projects, there will also be opportunities to develop and pursue independent projects, time and funding permitting. Extensive knowledge or experience with bioinformatics/computational biology, landscape genomics and conservation genomics is required. We are looking for a focused, motivated candidate with excellent organization and communication skills and a strong commitment to evolutionary and conservation genomics. If you like herps, that’s a plus!
