The lab will be launched in February 2018 as a part of the Department of Computer Science at University of Otago in Dunedin, and we are planning to recruit a few new members later that year. Job ads will be posted soon and the positions will remain open until filled (no deadline), but do fire me an email if you are interested in doing a PhD or postdoc at the lab in beautiful Otago. We are particularly interested in developing algorithms and scalable statistical methods for evolutionary data analysis, including phylogenomic methods, fitness landscape inference and analysis, genetic interactions, and other computationally demanding areas of genomics and related fields. I would be happy to provide further details about specific projects to interested people. We also are happy to accommodate applicants’ own scientific interests and welcome informal email enquires containing a brief outline of why you want to join our lab. The successful applicants will be working in close collaboration with Genomics Aotearoa in New Zealand and Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Germany.
