Postdoctoral Positions in Comparative Genomics


Postdoctoral Positions in Comparative Genomics 


Two postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Esther Betrán,
Ph.D., located in the newly remodeled facilities of the Genome Biology Group
at the University of Texas at Arlington
(http://biology.uta.edu/genome_group/index.htm). 

The NIH funded research focuses on the origin of new genes and their role in
genome evolution. We are looking for candidates with computational and/or
experimental expertise. 

Several projects are under development in the lab to answer essential
questions in the field of new gene origination: functional and evolutionary
study of young retrogenes, de novo formation of promoter regions and
patterns on the formation of new genes. For a summary of research, please
see: 

http://www3.uta.edu/faculty/betran/publications.html

Candidates should have or be close to obtaining a Ph.D. degree in
computational biology or evolutionary genetics with desire to conduct
comparative genomics analysis. Candidates with computational expertise
should be familiar with whole-genome datasets alignments, practical
experience programming in Perl and MySQL in a Unix/Linux environment.
Candidates with experimental expertise should be highly train in molecular
biology techniques. A Drosophila genetics and evolutionary background is a
plus. 

Our lab enjoys vibrant interactions with other members of the new and
rapidly expanding Genome Biology Group. Additionally, the lab will benefit
greatly from the new Genome Facility and new lab space. 

The University of Texas at Arlington, the second largest institution in The
University of Texas system, is a full service research and teaching
university with over 25,000 students. The University is located in the city
of Arlington in the center of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex, one of the
leading centers of aerospace, electronics, and telecommunications activity
in the U.S. Excellent recreational, entertainment, and cultural facilities,
major airport, modern shopping complexes and professional sports
organizations are located in Arlington and the surrounding area. Other of
the main advantages of the Metroplex area is the inexpensive cost of living.


To apply for these positions please send a CV, a letter of interest and
names of two potential referees to betran at uta.edu or post your application
to:

Esther Betrán
University of Texas at Arlington
Department of Biology. Life Science 337
501 South Nedderman Drive
Arlington, TX 76019
