Postdoctoral Researcher in Evolutionary Genetics

University of Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

The Evolutionary Genetics Group at the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Zurich, is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to join our dynamic and collaborative group, which focuses on advancing our understanding of evolutionary processes through genomic analyses, with a particular emphasis on dolphins and orangutans. We combine important questions in classical behavioral ecology (cooperation, culture, drivers of social structure) with genomic approaches (eDNA, aDNA, full genome sequencing), dedicated to unraveling the genetic mechanisms driving adaptation and diversity in non-human populations.

Your responsibilities

The successful candidate will play a key role in conducting evolutionary genomic analyses, utilizing existing genomic data from orangutans and dolphins (Shark Bay Dolphins). The position requires expertise in handling and analyzing large scale genomic data and proficiency in coding languages (Python, Bash, R). The researcher will actively contribute to ongoing projects and collaborate closely with team members.

Your profile

  • PhD in Evolutionary Genomics or a related field;
  • Expertise in handling and analyzing large scale genomic data;
  • Proficiency in coding languages: Python, Bash, and R;
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills;
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills;
  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively.
