There are two postdoc positions available in our lab -- the Phylogenomics group of the University of Vigo, in Spain. You can read the announcement in evoldir or on the link below, from the European Commission. Basically we are looking for someone with a good theoretical/empirical background in phylogenomics (NGS, phylogenetics, HPC, gene-species trees discordance, etc.) The applicant should have a good combination of computational, statistical and practical analysis skills. In any case, please get in contact with David and keep in mind that a honest evaluation of your skills will be greatly appreciated.
EURAXESS - Postdoctoral positions in Phylogenomics -- University of Vigo, Spain
Two postdoctoral positions are available to work on phylogenomics methodology and applications under a project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) in David Posada’s lab at the University of Vigo, Spain (http://darwin.uvigo.es).
DESCRIPTION: Two postdoctoral positions are available to work on phylogenomics methodology and applications under a project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) in David Posada’s lab at the University of Vigo, Spain (http://darwin.uvigo.es).
Initial appointments will be made for one year, with possible extension. Gross annual salary including benefits will be around 24-30 kEuros, commensurate with experience. Starting date should be as soon as possible .
REQUIREMENTS: Candidates should have a doctoral degree in Biology, Computer Science, Statistics or Mathematics. Excellent bioinformatic skills and prior experience with phylogenomics are essential. Strong communication and teamwork abilities are fundamental. Familiarity with parallel and distributed computing environments is convenient. Advanced statistical skills would be a plus.
APPLICATION: Please send a letter of interest, C.V., and the names and contact details of two referees to David Posada at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating “postdoc phylogenomics” in the subject of the email. Questions and requests for more information should be directed at the same address. Review of applications will begin immediately, and continue until the positions are filled.

PS: In September we will also have a Computational and Statistical Phylogenomics Meeting in town. Besides being a great opportunity for knowing Vigo, the invited talks represent some of the most interesting topics in theoretical phylogenomics.
