We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to apply computational analyses to the study of cross-species communication mediated by small RNAs. The project involves comparative analysis of small RNA-producing loci in closely related gastrointestinal nematode parasites and analysis of changes in small RNA populations in response to variable environmental conditions (nutrient availability/co-infections).
This is a demanding but exciting opportunity for an ambitious, driven individual to develop expertise in small RNA biology and cross-species communication in a host-parasite context.
A PhD (or near completion) in evolutionary biology, computational biology, genomics, RNA biology, parasitology, ecology or related field is required. The ideal candidate will have previous experience in transposable elements and/or small RNA biology and experience in using/developing imaginative or innovative approaches to solving bioinformatic problems and/or evolutionary biology problems.
This is a full time post, available until 30th June 2022.
