PhD in Population Genomics
The GP3 lab is currently recruiting for a PhD student who will be involved in developing genomic resources for jack pine, and using those resources to investigate adaptive variation in jack pine to understand mountain pine beetle spread-risk in Canada. You will gain access to a range of experimental techniques (e.g. DNA collection and purification, genome sequencing and annotation, landscape genomics) as part of a large and supportive interdisciplinary research team spread across Canada with shared goals. You will also have a wealth of opportunities for developing your skills as a teacher, mentor, and communicator (in whatever way best fits your career goals) in a positive and encouraging environment.
Interested applications should have a strong academic background and experience in population genetics/genomics, bioinformatics, and/or landscape genetics.
To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, and unofficial transcripts to . People who identify with traditionally under-represented groups in STEM are encouraged to apply.
