Offres de Post-docs : Behavioural genomics and molecular ecology, York university, Canada

Deadline for applications: 17 December 2021The Rehan Lab ( is hiring 2 postdoc positions to study 1) behavioural genomics of maternal care and 2) molecular ecology using museomics. The Rehan lab is a collaborative group of researchers, staff, and students focusing on bee behaviour, ecology and evolution. The candidates will join a vibrant team of integrative biologists passionate about social evolution and wildlife conservation. Behavioural Genomics PositionThis postdoc will examine existing data on time course transcriptomics to determine the effects of maternal care on offspring developmental plasticity. The candidate will have the opportunity to develop additional research projects on molecular evolution and behavioural genomics. The successful candidate will have a strong background in comparative genomics and bioinformatics. Analytical and writing skills as well as familiarity with transcriptomic and network analyses are highly desirable.Molecular Ecology Position The bee holobiome incorporates species’ population genomics, microbiomes and environmental DNA. This postdoctoral researcher will examine wild bee DNA to document species ranges, isolation by environment and ecological stressors. This postdoc will examine wild bee symbioses and potential pathogens in their environments using combined landscape ecology and museomics approaches. The candidate should have experience with bioinformatics and analysis of genomic data. Experience with bees, microbiome, and/or population genetics would be an asset.York University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages applications from women and underrepresented groups. If interested, please send a CV, names of three references, and a short statement of interests to Sandra Rehan by Dec. 17, 2021.
