Ireland: PhD Studentship: Bioinformatics and Genome Evolution

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Postdoctoral and PhD positions are available in Prof. Ken Wolfe’s research group in the Smurfit Institute of Genetics, Trinity College Dublin. The projects will involve using bioinformatics and comparative genomics methods to study genome evolution, particularly in yeast and other fungal species. Research interests in the lab include (i) the evolutionary origins of new genes, and (ii) the development of new bioinformatics methods to improve the detection of remote sequence homologs by using synteny data.

These positions form part of research programme supported by Science Foundation Ireland. For further information about the lab, see
Competitive salaries will be available for outstanding applicants.

Previous experience in molecular evolution, bioinformatics, and/or computer programming experience in C / Perl / SQL is essential for postdoctoral applicants. Candidates should submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae, including the names of two referees, by mail or e-mail to:
Prof. Kenneth H. Wolfe,
Smurfit Institute of Genetics,
